A new store will be opening up in Big Rapids this week aimed at those shoppers looking for a great deal and maybe something unique.
The Salvation Army Family Store and Donation Center will be opening on Friday; Chris Vallette of the local Salvation Army chapter is very excited to hit the ground running.
“After three months of collecting items and getting things set up and ready at the store, the Salvation Army is really excited to see everything come to fruition and be able to open the doors to the public and serve their needs which will allow the Salvation Army provide more programs to the area we serve.”
The new facility will occupy 22,000 square feet of space in a portion of the former Big Rapids Furniture store.
Much like other Salvation Army Stores, the store in Big Rapids will sell donated items from the public, including gently used clothing, household goods, electronics, furniture, appliances, books, sporting goods and general merchandise.
The store's hours of operation will be Monday through Saturday 9am-6pm (closed Sundays).
