COLUMBUS, Ga. -- Goodwill Industries plans to expand its job training and retail/donation centers in Georgia and Alabama.

The Columbus-based nonprofit announced the plan Wednesday.

Goodwill will reportedly add five new retail stores and used merchandise donation centers.

President and CEO Jane P. Nichols said the nonprofit also plans to add four new career service centers that offer clients and potential employers access to computers, tax filing help and job placement services; and one new training center.

The area Goodwill agency, which has an annual budget of $20.2 million, employs about 460 people. Nichols said the expansion will add 150 new jobs by the end of next summer.
