The Experience Of Shopping At A Thrift Store

The Goodwill Store In Janesville Was Evacuated

Believe it or not, the company has procedures for situations like this one. I'm not sure if think that's good or kind of frightening. The officers safely evacuated the building. They called in the bomb squad who removed the explosives. The store was back open a couple of hours later. The authorities are currently investigating the incident.
