Salvation Army thrift store closing Saturday

Posted: Updated:

Everything is 50 percent off and it all must go.

"For the last few years we've been running at a $50,000-$60,000 deficit," said Major Thomas Riggs.

That's why the Salvation Army is closing its doors on Saturday.

"So instead of spending $50,000-$60,000 to operate the thrift store we're now going to have that money to use to help people meet other physical needs such as rent, utilities, food assistance," said Riggs.

The Salvation Army owns the building on 900 North Cliff and will be turning it into a social services center, but for the people who frequent the thrift store aisles, Saturday will be a sad day.

"We're going to miss this place, and we hope there's another place where we can do our shopping and get good deals like we've always got here," said Craig Sperlich who shops at the thrift store.

Added Holly Kiser, "It's a good store to come to. We like coming here. We've gotten some really good deals here. It will be missed."

Unfortunately for the shop, there just weren't enough supporters to keep it open.
