Albany--The Salvation Army is celebrating its grand re-opening of its family store.  Since September the thrift store has stayed closed while undergoing renovation.  The store has been in Albany for more than fifty years, so the makeover was greatly needed.

For the past few months, workers with the Salvation Army have been busy repainting, remerchandising, restaffing, reorganizing, arranging new shelving and display areas.

Some of the things you'll find out the store include clothes, furniture, shoes, books, household items, decorative items, comforters, etc.

All of the stock in the store is dependent on donations from the community.  It's important note that the Salvation Army is always in need of donations. They can be brought Monday through Saturday, from 9 AM to 5 PM, to The Salvation Army, 304 West 2nd Avenue, Albany, GA

All of the money from the store (after overhead expenses) goes into direct public services including: food pantry, utility assistance, clothing vouchers, emergency shelter, food services, disaster services, character-building programs from children and adults.  In fact, all of the money raised in the store stays in the local community.

The Salvation Army will have a new sale starting every Saturday.  There will also be new merchandise put on the floor every week day, all throughout the day.  

Store hours are from Monday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM.
