Salvation Army Madison Thrift Store Closing
Huntsville, AL (March 1, 2017) – The Salvation Army of Huntsville/Madison County regretfully announces the closing of its Madison store, located at 385 Hughes Road, effective Friday, March 31, 2017. The Salvation Army staff is grateful for the support and patronage of Madison residents over the years, and consider serving the community a privilege and honor.
The decision to close the Madison store was not made lightly. After much review, the result came by voluntary vote of the Army’s local Advisory Board. "The store wasn't generating the sales needed to sustain store operations,” states Major Bret McElroy, Corps Officer. “Being the best stewards possible with community charitable funds is important to us.”
As a form of appreciation to shoppers, the thrift store will run closing sales through March, or until all merchandise is gone. Check Facebook pages for sale notices at facebook.com/The-Salvation-Army-Family-Store-in-Huntsville.
The store closing doesn’t mean The Salvation Army’s efforts in the City of Madison will end. The community will continue to have access to much-needed emergency social services and adult rehabilitation through The Salvation Army.
Over the years Salvation Army Family Stores, loyal customers and donors have made a huge impact in Madison County by providing an affordable resource for clothing and household items to families in need. The proceeds of Family Store sales help fund The Salvation Army emergency shelter, soup kitchen, rehabilitation program and other services.
Customers and donors can continue to shop and drop donations at The Salvation Army Family Store in Huntsville, at 2112 Oakwood Ave. To arrange for donation pick up call 256-533-5838.
