New-look Salvos Fam­ily Store to of­fi­cially open

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

THE NEWLY re­vamped Sal­va­tion Army Fam­ily Stores’ of­fi­cial grand open­ing is here.

Head to the new-look store to­mor­row at 9am for a free dough­nut, cof­fee and to bag a bar­gain, all while sup­port­ing the cru­cial ser­vices and pro­grams of­fered to peo­ple in need within the com­mu­ni­ties of the re­gion.

Lock­yer Sal­va­tion Army Cap­tain Craig Har­lum said the fam­ily store was well over­due for a re­vamp, af­ter the orig­i­nal store opened 13 years ago on the other end of Rail­way St in Gat­ton.

“It worked – but we are so happy be­cause this shop has air-con­di­tion­ing – there’s a bet­ter lay­out and 30 per­cent more re­tail space,” Cpt Har­lum said

“And there’s even bet­ter qual­ity cloth­ing at the same prices.

“We are still look­ing for more vol­un­teers for the new store, any­one who is in­ter­ested needs to come in and see the manager Diane.”

Money made from the Sal­va­tion Army Fam­ily Store goes back into vi­tal pro­grams and projects run in the com­mu­nity by the Lock­yer val­ley Sal­va­tion Army.

“We help with many lo­cal chil­dren’s projects, coun­selling, emer­gency re­lief, drug and al­co­hol treat­ment and home­less­ness ser­vices, and much more,” Cpt Har­lum said.

“Re­mem­ber to grab the voucher from in­side this pa­per to spend $10 and re­ceive a free item of cloth­ing to the value of $5 when you present it in store. The voucher is valid un­til next Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14.”

The new Sal­va­tion Army Fam­ily Store is lo­cated at 5 Rail­way St, Gat­ton.
