Starting Tuesday, Feb. 12 the Gloucester County Store in the Deptford Mall will house a representative from the Gloucester County One-Stop Career Center in Thorofare. Located next to Boscov’s on the mall’s upper level, the store’s representative will be available to talk from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. about specific services the One-Stop Career Center offers.
“The One-Stop is an important resource for those who are unemployed or underemployed and we want to make their services more accessible by offering hours in the Gloucester County Store,” says Gloucester County Freeholder Heather Simmons.“The One-Stop brings services of many different agencies together and anytime we can make services more convenient and helpful we increase the chances of our residents to gain quality employment.”
