The Goodwill store near Lake Monticello held its grand opening on Thursday morning.
Dozens of customers lined up early in order to be the first to shop for discounted items like books, furniture and clothing.
"I was just going to find the cheapest deals I could get and it's wonderful that we have a place here that we can go to," says Hazel Searcy, customer. "I think it's going to help the county."
The new store and donation center has created sixteen new jobs for Fluvanna County.
Goodwill is located on Heritage Drive, across from the Food Lion at Lake Monticello.
It will be open from 8 AM until 9 PM, Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 PM on Sunday.
