Salvation Army Thrift Store Hopes Renovations Will Boost Sales

Posted: Updated:

The doors are back open at the Salvation Army thrift store in Charlottesville.

The store closed for a little more than a week to make renovations.

The work was paid for by an outside donation to improve the appearance of the store.

Shelves, fresh paint, and racks to hang items on the walls all give the store a new look that the Salvation Army hopes will boost sales.

Salvation army Officer, Major Allen Johnson said, “One person's trash is another person's treasure and we can get a lot of the things people donate here and we just need to make sure that we handle them properly and get them out so that we can start putting more resources back into the community."

Those resources include the soup kitchen, emergency center, and shelter proceeds from the thrift store go to fund those community programs.
