Arc Herkimer continues to be the sole nonprofit partner of Goodwill Industries of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey, Inc. The two organizations opened their first joint venture retail store in 2008 and have enjoyed great success with proceeds supporting individuals with disabilities. The new store, which is located in the former Aubuchon Hardware and is larger comprising 8,000 sq. feet, will continue to provide area residents an alternative for quality shopping—one that offers great values and its own unique mix of desirable merchandise.
Merchandise includes new and gently used brand-name items including family apparel, vintage and boutique clothing, shoes, books, housewares, furniture, home electronics, antiques and collectables, sporting goods, seasonal items, toys, and more. The store is located at 105 Caroline Street in Herkimer. Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information call (315) 866-1212.
Proceeds from the store support services for individuals with disabilities and other barriers to employment in the community.

Arc Herkimer is a partnership of persons who have developmental, physical and/or psychiatric disabilities, and their families, staff, volunteers, and members. Together, they assist people with disabilities, and others in the community, to achieve full potential and to live enriched lives.
