Goodwill to open boutique in Urbana

URBANA — Goodwill Industries is opening a new retail store, LaBelle Boutique, at 114 N. Vine St., U, in the same complex as the Urbana Schnucks.

The three-day grand opening celebration begins Friday and continues through Sunday with door prizes and registrations for grand prizes.

LaBelle Boutique will offer new and gently worn name-brand clothing, shoes, housewares and accessories at prices from $9.99 and up.

"The boutique concept has been successful in other Goodwill markets throughout the country," said Sharon Durbin, CEO of Land of Lincoln Goodwill Industries.

"It gives shoppers a more intimate environment and showcases the better-known name-brand items we receive through our donation centers," she said.

Hollister, Abercrombie, Gap, Dockers and Nautica are some of the brands at the boutique, where inventory changes daily. Hours will be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sundays.

The store will be the second of its kind in the downstate Goodwill district. The first opened Oct. 12 in Chatham.

Goodwill provides job training and employment placement services for people with disabilities and those who face other employment challenges.
