City Councillor Peter McQueen to join Salvation Army Representatives for Ribbon-Cutting
NDG, Montreal, January 30, 2020: The Salvation Army Thrift Store is celebrating a Grand Opening in NDG on Thursday, January 30, 2020, after relocating to 6112 Sherbrooke St. West. The new NDG Thrift Store will continue to offer savings on gently used clothing and household items, as well as a Donor Welcome Centre to accept donations seven days a week. The relocation follows the lease expiration of the former NDG Thrift Store at 5758-62 Sherbrooke St. West, which closed its doors in early January.
“We are very pleased to be opening a new Salvation Army Thrift Store just down the street from our former location so that we can continue to serve the valued NDG community,” says Michele Walker, Director of Retail Operations at The Salvation Army Thrift Store. “We have been in this community for almost 20 years, and are so excited to continue making a positive impact in Montreal.”
The new location will be opened by city councillor Peter McQueen and local Salvation Army representatives. The Grand Opening celebration will feature complimentary refreshments and giveaways for the first 200 guests.
“Shopping and donating with us means you are giving to a good cause that assists thousands locally while supporting a greener community,” says Walker. “Last year, over 1,300 vouchers were redeemed in Montreal at a value of just under $200,000 for those in need to shop free of charge at The Salvation Army Thrift Store.”
With six locations in the city, The Salvation Army Thrift Store has played a vital role in the community over the years and provides funds to support neighbours in need through Salvation Army programs, services, and emergency relief efforts.
