Hundreds of eager shoppers were lined up by 7 a.m. on the day Wilsonville’s Goodwill opened in order to take advantage of the deals.

“There’s been a steady flow of people all day,” said Gary Van Allen, deputy director of Goodwill Industries of the Columbia and Willamette. “It’s what we strive for, it’s our goal and we’re pleased when we meet those goals.”

By official count, some 260 people rushed through the doors of the $3 million, 21,000 square foot store during the first 15 minutes it was open, Van Allen said. Meanwhile, Wilsonville Mayor Tim Knapp and other local elected and business officials were on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
