Thrift store closing

After more than 20 years as part of the Johnstown community, The Salvation Army Family Thrift Store at 1025 Eisenhower Blvd. will close on March 1.

The first priority of the store was to raise funds to continue offering no-cost rehabilitation programs to people in need, but current circumstances, including building maintenance costs, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic, have made supporting these programs through this store impossible.

“The decision to close the store was not made lightly, but after much review, it seems to be the most responsible choice,” said Capt. Daniel Gonzalez, who oversees the store, in a statement.

The Salvation Army Johnstown Worship and Service Center will continue to serve those in need and that every effort is being made to refer current employees of the store to open positions at other Salvation Army centers, Gonzalez said.
