Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Goodwill Industries opens the doors of its newest location in Vestal.

People lined up in the Campus Plaza outside the store this morning in anticipation of the doors opening.

It is the second store to open in Broome County in a short time.

Goodwill opened fewer than three months ago on Glenwood Avenue in Binghamton.

Executive VP of Community Relations Karen Means said, "We thought this would be a really great opportunity to bring affordable great shopping to the vestal area."

Goodwill takes in gently used clothing to be sold at low prices for those on a tight budget.

This goodwill will also provide jobs for up to 15 people including opportunities for those with disabilities.
