THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A lack of revenue and donations led the Salvation Army to close its Thomasville thrift store.
Salvation Army officials said the store on Madison Street lost nearly $20,000 every year for the past five years.
Volunteers said the community is losing a vital resource.
The Salvation Army is now brainstorming new ways to provide similar services, just not in this space.
Commanding Officer Thomas Taylor said, “We're in dialogue with a couple other stable entities here in Thomasville to say, 'Listen. If we give you a voucher, will you honor that voucher and just invoice us for the amount?'”
Taylor will meet with the Georgia Division's financial committee next week to talk about what to do with the empty space.
