South Portland, Maine - The Salvation Army opened a new store in South Portland at Clarks Pond Pkwy on May 28th. The new shop has a Family Store design to improve the shopping experience for its customers filled with bargain priced clothing, household items, electronics, books, toys, furniture and collectables.
The store will 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 will offer services free of charge, and sales from the Family Thrift store will be 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.
