Salvation Army Opens New Store in Boardman, OH

Released 14 August 2014

Boardman, OH (August 14, 2014) – The Salvation Army is set to open a new store in Boardman, OH on Friday, August 22nd and Saturday, August 23rd, 2014. The new store is designed to improve the shopping experience for its customers and includes nearly 12,000 square feet of shopping space filled with bargain-priced clothing, household items, electronics, books, toys, furniture and collectables.  Budget-conscious shoppers will also appreciate the store’s even deeper “Family Day” discounts on Wednesdays.

Located 444 Boardman – Canfield Road, between Honda and Goodyear, next door to the Boardman Plaza, the Family Store will open its doors for the first time at 9:00 am on Friday, August 22nd. Opening day shoppers will enjoy special welcome promotional prizes, free Coffee and Donuts, Hot Dogs & Soft drinks. In addition, brand new flat screen TVs will be given to a lucky shopper each of the two days.

The new store will bring 12 new jobs to the area and it will also make it possible for The Salvation Army to provide better assistance for people in the community who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, and other life issues since revenues from the Family Store will support the charity’s rehabilitation center. This center offers services free of charge, and sales from the Family Thrift store are its sole source of funding. Families in need may also receive vouchers for free furniture or clothing from the store through other Salvation Army programs.

“Our new Family Store will offer more selection and more bargains that appeal to everyone in order to provide our customers with a better shopping experience and support our social services work,” says Captain Bayode Agbaje, who oversees The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Akron.  “We really look forward to contributing to the community at all levels.”

Tax receipts will be provided on-the-spot for any donations received during store hours, Monday – Saturday, 9:00 am – 9:00 pm. After-hours clothing donations can be dropped in the bins located in the parking lot. For more information, please call  (330) 773 - 3331 or 800-SA-TRUCK.
