personnel help ring up the bargains for opening day shoppers.
Newington, CT- The Salvation Army opened a new store on the Berlin Turnpike in Newington on Saturday, November 12. Opening day shoppers were greeted with coffee and donuts, gifts, special hourly giveaways and great bargains! The store, located at 2230 Berlin Turnpike, is designed to improve the shopping experience for its customers and includes 18,300 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.
The store will bring more than twenty-two new jobs to the area. 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 Mr. David Deitrick, who oversees The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Hartford. "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 9am-8pm. After-hours clothing donations can be dropped in the bins located in the parking lot. For more information, please call (860)527-8106 or 800-SA-TRUCK.
