The newly relocated 30,000sq ft Thrift Store opened Saturday, March 19th 2011 at 9am to 400+ customers in line. By the end of the first night, 2000+ customers made their way through the store formerly occupied by Furniture Express just south of 15 Mile Rd. This location will also house our first Outlet store later this same year. The Outlet will feature items that did not sell in our other Thrift Store. These items will be available to purchase by the pound.
The old location opened in March 2003 in space formerly occupied by several smaller retail stores, this 19,000 sq. ft. store is just across a parking lot from its former 5,500 sq. ft. site which it replaced. Now quadrupled in size, this busy store features a bright interior with high ceilings and 5 fitting rooms. This location has convenient parking, and a donation center located at the south end of the building. Donation attendants are on duty 362 days of the year (closed on Easter and Christmas Day). This site provides employment for 32 people who are assisted daily by 3 ARC Program Beneficiaries. Store proceeds and donations support The Salvation Army’s Southeast MI A.R.C.
