Goody’s retail store is accepting job applications at its new location at 299 Commerce Ave. The store will open July 18.
“We’re excited to be in LaGrange,” said Phillip Brown, Goody’s district manager for north and central Georgia. “LaGrange is small town America which is where we like to be. We operate close to 500 stores nationwide in towns like LaGrange.”
There will be 25 to 30 positions available for the initial opening, with hiring expected to be completed at the end of next week, Brown said. Applicants must apply in person at the store 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
The former Goody’s store that was located at LaGrange Mall was operated by a different company. Stage Stores, Inc. purchased the rights to the Goody’s name in 2009 and now operates stores under the names of Bealls, Goody’s, Palais Royal, Peebles and Stage.
The store will offer brand name clothing, accessories and cosmetics for juniors and women as well as men’s and children’s apparel.
The grand opening will be at 9 a.m. July 18 and the first 150 shoppers at the store will receive a free tote bag. Goody’s also offers a shopper reward program including a discount for customers 50 years and older and a military discount.
