Salvation Army closes thrift store in Fort Macleod

The Salvation Army will cease operation of its thrift store in Fort Macleod on Friday, July 20.
As a result, the Salvation Army stopped accepting donations of used clothing or household items after Tuesday, July 16.
The Salvation Army said in a news release the decision was not made lightly as it values the community of Fort Macleod, in which it has served since 1915.
“We would like to thank our dedicated employees and volunteers for their contributions and efforts to help those in need in the community.” divisional secretary of public relations Major Al Hoeft said.
“The Salvation Army is proud of the role it has played in Fort Macleod for more than 100 years, and we are grateful to the community for supporting us in our mission to give hope to those in need.”
The Salvation Army will continue to operate their family services programs, including a food bank and Christmas assistance, and is committed to continuing to work with local partners in the community to ensure those in need continue to receive the support they require.
