TRENTON – The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center will open its 36th metropolitan Detroit thrift store in Trenton June 25.
The new store is at 3004 Van Horn in the Trafford Square Shopping Center. The grand opening festivities begin at 9 a.m. with coffee and donuts and hot dogs.
“The new store will be our second boutique-style family thrift store,” said Jacqulynn Idzior, director of operations at The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan ARC. “Our boutique stores carry the best of the best donations.
“We launched our first boutique store in Royal Oak five years ago as a pilot and it’s performed so well, we’ve decided to extend the concept. We are pleased to offer our outreach to the families we serve in Wayne County with the addition of our new Trenton location.”
The store will be open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday with donations accepted during business hours. Contributions of gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and toys will be accepted at the rear of the building.
Proceeds from all 36 metro Detroit Salvation Army thrift stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center’s independely funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults.
“Whether you’re donating items or shopping in a store, by supporting your local Salvation Army thrift store, you’re helping men and women seeking to rebuild their lives make a positive change,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “Hundreds of men and women complete our rehabilitation program each year returning to their families as contributing members of society, and none of it would be possible without the support of our local community.”
