Union County Freeholder Sergio Granados joined with local officials and members of the public for the grand opening of the new 2nd Avenue Value Store in Union Township at 2661 Morris Avenue, on Thursday morning. The Union County Workforce Innovation Business Center helped find qualified applicants to fill many of 200 positions created at the new store.

The Freeholder Board and Union County Workforce Development Board created the WIB Center in 2014, in partnership with Union County College, to help new businesses come into Union County and connect with employment-ready job seekers.

“We continue to build upon public and private partnerships to create the employment opportunities for Union County residents,” said Granados, who is liaison to the Workforce Development Board.
