Ralph B. Shiner Center

 

The Ralph B. Shiner Center, 1341 W. Spencer St. in Appleton, is the logistics and production hub of Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin. It’s also a training center helping people with barriers to employment learn job skills while doing meaningful work.

Hours are 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Donation hours are 9 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The 100,000-square-foot facility is named after our first CEO, Ralph B. Shiner Jr.

The transportation, warehousing, maintenance and processing operations based here support all our stores from LaCrosse to Manitowoc.

Shiner also houses subcontrating operations, such donated and new goods production, post-retail sales, GoodWipers and e-commerce.

More than 100 Goodwill team members, program participants and volunteers work and learn here. The Shiner Center also supports several community agencies, such as the American Red Cross, Fox Cities Rotary and others.

Goodwill NCW has achieved virtually 100 percent reuse or recycle of soft line donations, thanks to the efforts of the Shiner team. At this facility, donated textiles that did not sell or are not saleable in our retail stores are baled into 1,000-pound bales and sold to vendors across the U.S. and Canada. In 2016, Goodwill NCW kept more than 48 million pounds out of regional landfills.

The Shiner Center also serves as the home to our Goodwill Outlet Store, which allows shoppers to treasure shop for bargains by the pound.
