Goodwill Industries of Middle Tennessee will adjust the business hours at its 36 retail stores beginning Monday, August 8.
New store hours will be from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and noon until 6 p.m. on Sunday. Saturday hours, which are from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m., will not change.
"We are returning to a schedule similar to the one we had prior to April of 2015," Goodwill Senior Director of Retail Chris Burr said. "After trying slightly expanded hours for a year, we have found that the original schedule - which was built around peak shopping demand - provides the best use of our resources to serve customers and the best life-work balance for our employees."
He added that the new Sunday hours will give many employees the freedom to attend traditional church services.
Hours for Donation Express Centers at retail stores will also change. Those hours will now be from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Saturday and from noon until 6 p.m. on Sunday. Hours at donation sites not adjacent to stores will not change.
