The Salvation Army celebrates grand opening of NEW Washington Township Thrift Store, Oct. 4
Roary of The Detroit Lions, free snacks, deals all day
Join The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) as they celebrate the grand opening of their new Washington Township thrift store at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 4.
The new thrift store located at 66011 Van Dyke Road between 30 and 31 Mile roads will replace the nonprofit’s existing Romeo thrift store and donation center located at 70945 Van Dyke Road, expanding the location from 26,000 sq. ft. to 32,000 sq. ft.
“The new Washington Township location provides more convenience and better accessibility from the area’s downtown shopping district,” said Jacqulynn Idzior, director of operations for The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “We’re very excited to open this new location, as we continue to serve the community members who shop our stores and the beneficiaries of our programs.”
The grand opening festivities begin at 9 a.m. with coffee and donuts, hotdogs and a special guest appearance from Roary of the Detroit Lions from 10 a.m. to noon.
The store will be open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and open for donations only on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contributions of gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and toys are accepted at the donation center located in the rear of the building.
Proceeds from all 34 metro Detroit Salvation Army thrift stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center’s independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults.
Founded by William Booth in London, England, in 1865, The Salvation Army is a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving people in need without discrimination. The ARC is an integral part of TSA’s mission, and offers substance-abusing adults the opportunity to rebuild their lives through a voluntary, short-term residential self-help program designed to establish a sense of dignity, self-esteem and personal strength that will allow them to resist the desire to abuse a substance and regain their rightful place as contributing members of society. Completely self-funded, the ARC draws its entire operating budget from the revenue of the 34 Salvation Army Thrift Stores located in Southeast Michigan.
