The Salvation Army Thrift Store is creating a real buzz in Verdun with the opening of its newest location filled with fab finds.
The Thrift Store will be hosting the grand opening of their newest location this Wednesday, May 15th on 4025 Wellington Street, Verdun at 9 a.m. The smallest of seven locations in Montreal the Thrift Store is set to have a big impact in the community.
“Our Thrift Stores are making a difference daily in the communities we call home,” says Michele Walker, Director of Retail Operations at The Salvation Army Thrift Store. “We are so excited to be offering not only unique finds to add to your vintage collection, but to be supporting the young adults and families that have transformed Verdun in recent years.”
By shopping and donating at The Salvation Army Thrift Store you help support local Salvation Army programs, services and emergency relief efforts that assist thousands in Montreal annually. “Thrifting with us is more than the feeling you get when you find a special piece, it’s also that feeling of knowing you are helping a neighbour who may have fallen on hard times,” says Walker.
The Thrift Store is also equipped with a Donor Welcome Centre open daily, for the community to donate items in gently used condition they may no longer need. In fiscal year 2018-2019 the Thrift Store diverted over 82 million pounds from local landfills nationally creating cleaner communities across Canada.
“Thrifting with us is a win-win situation for the community, and we encourage everyone to visit us this Wednesday to shop and learn more about what we do. As a bonus, the first 100 guests get a special gift to show our appreciation,” Walker adds.
Store hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Donor Welcome Centre is open during store hours and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. This is the second new Salvation Army Thrift Store location opened in Montreal within the last year, with plans for further development coming soon.
