SALVATION ARMY RE-OPENS STORE IN DANBURY
Offers Budget Bargains for Every Member of the Family to Fund Help for Those in Need
DANBURY – The Salvation Army is set to re-open its store in Danbury on Saturday. The remodeled shop will have a Family Store design to vastly improve the shopping experience for its customers and will be 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 on Main Street, the Family Store will re-open its doors at 9:30 am after considerable renovations, including a massive facelift of the front and new signage that gives a nod to the building's heritage as the old Sears and Roebuck property. Opening day shoppers will enjoy free coffee and donuts in the morning, as well as a barbeque at noon.
The newly-remodeled store will make it possible for The Salvation Army to provide better serve people in the community who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, homelessness and other life issues since revenues from the Family Store will support the charity's rehabilitation center, as the stores 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 and Family Store in Danbury. "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. After-hours clothing donations can be dropped in the bins located in the parking lot. For more information, please call 1-800-SA-TRUCK.
