Photos: Moon Valley Residents Protest Grand Opening of Goodwill Store

Despite the rain, around a dozen residents of the affluent North Phoenix neighborhood of Moon Valley showed up to protest the grand opening of a Goodwill store in their neighborhood.

In addition to some residents believing that the store is not "compatible" with the neighborhood, the picketers are upset that the Phoenix City Council was so helpful to Goodwill in its bid to open the store at that location -- the former site of an AJ's Fine Foods -- and that the significant outcry from the residents about Goodwill's plan was all for naught.
