Good’s Store, Making it Better for a Community to Shop

Opening in early July 2022, New Store, New Location. With the much larger retail space, this new Ephrata store will be able to offer an expanded selection of merchandise across the board.  As with the current store, clothing and footwear will be prominent categories, with brands including Carhartt®, Wrangler®, Under Armour®, Carolina®, Muck Boots®, and Skechers®.  The selection of work boots will be considerably expanded.  Also, men’s suits will be available for the first time at our Ephrata store.

Probably the greatest changes for the new store will be seen in the hardware, sporting goods, and lawn & garden categories.  For the first time, the Ephrata store will offer paint: Clark + Kensington® and Rust-oleum® paints, and Wooster® and Purdy® paint applicators.  We will have power tools, including DeWalt® tools, electrical and plumbing supplies, National® builders’ hardware, and Hillman® fasteners.  Also for the first time, the Ephrata store will be able to cut keys.  The selection of lawn & garden products, such as solar-powered outdoor décor and birding supplies, will be greatly expanded, and for the first time, Traeger® grills and grilling supplies will be available.  The new store will offer more pet supplies, and will add Blue Buffalo® pet food to go with Ex-cell® and Taste of the Wild®.  In the sporting goods department, you will find more options from Coleman®, Igloo®, and Franklin Sports®, and as before, you will see Spikeball®, Bell® biking accessories, and Innova® disc golf products.

While much will change with the relocation of the Ephrata Store to 1127 South State Street, Good’s Store will continue to offer a wide selection of essential goods for the entire family at low prices.  Also available will be items made by local Lancaster County craftsmen, including such things as bird feeders and bird houses, wooden drying racks, Biothane® harness belts, corn hole games, cast iron quoits, and croquet sets.  Good’s Store remains committed to providing a friendly welcome and helpful service to all shoppers, and looks forward to serving the Ephrata community and surrounding areas in this new location.
