The Salvation Army Thrift Store is set to reopen next week

VICTORIA, Texas- The Salvation Army Thrift Store closed its doors almost a year ago, due to recommendations by the CDC during the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The store was expected to reopen in the summer of 2020 but due to other unforeseen issues, they were unable to reopen. Now Captain Kenny Jones, the Commander and Chief at the Salvation Army, has a goal of opening the thrift store on January 20th. He would like the community’s support.

“Hopefully they will see a new cleaner, less cluttered, and more efficient thrift store. They will be able to see an inventory that is fresher and rotated out. It had gotten to where people were seeing the same thing every time that they came in and so we were trying to make sure that that didn’t happen any longer. I’ve got new management in place and I think we’re going to be able to give the community a much, much better shopping experience,” said Captain Kenny Jones, Commander of the Salvation Army.

Captain Kenny says the store closure has caused a huge financial impact for the Salvation Army. He hopes shoppers will enjoy the remodeled location and would like feedback on what the community loved and what people want to see inside the store. Captain Kenny says they will also start a live store on Facebook.

The Salvation Army Thrift store located at 4303 Navarro will be open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., Saturdays 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and it will be closed on Sundays.
