Goody’s Clothing Store, 2400 S. Main, is selling all current merchandise and transitioning to the name of Gordman’s.
The timeline is to sell the merchandise by late winter, then there will be a grand re-opening, Melinda Goff, manager of the Fort Scott Goody’s, said.
Goody’s will close March 9 and re-open as Gordman’s on March 21, according to Bria Lundy, Public Relations Director with Stage Stores, the parent company of Goody’s. “We will open 37 Gordman’s stores in March 2019, Fort Scott will be one of them.”
“We will still have the same staff,” Goff said. “Currently, twelve staff, two full time.”
“All current employees have been offered a job there,” Lundy said.
There will be a job fair at the store on Feb. 19, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Lundy said.
