LOGAN, W.Va. — The Salvation Army will open a store in downtown Logan September 19.
The new store will be located on Stratton Street near the Hot Cup Coffee Shop in downtown Logan.
Lieutenant Justin Johnson, with the Salvation Army in Logan County, noted his group is happy to be able to reopen a thrift store in Logan.
“The entire purpose of the Salvation Army Thrift store is to, first of all, provide used clothing at an affordable price to the community at large, but not it’s not just clothing, there are bric-a-brac items and furniture items,” noted Johnson.
It has been more than five years since a Salvation Army Thrift Store operated in Logan.
The group has started accepting donations at the Salvation Army building on Stratton Street.
The Salvation Army in Logan County is asking for donations of gently used clothing, furniture and other items for a starting inventory in the store.
“It’s entirely run on donations. We need to donations in order to move forward with opening the store and also to keep the store running. We resell the donations, and then we are able to use that money to put back into the programs for the community such as the feeding programs and utility programs and all those things we do throughout the entire year,” commented Johnson.
The Logan County Chamber of Commerce recently presented the Salvation Army in Logan County with a donation to help them with the store and other projects.
“We thank the community for all their support and we look forward to many years serving the community of Logan,” Johnson said.
