Wetaskiwin Salvation Army Thrift Store to re-open tomorrow

The Thrift store will open its doors to shoppers and donations June 3, 2020.

The Salvation Army in Wetaskiwin will re-open for the first time in months on June 3, 2020 following an extended closure for COVID-19.

“We will be accepting donations at our Thrift Store starting immediately,” announced Lieutenant Vivian Mag-Aso, Community Ministries Director for The Salvation Army in Wetaskiwin.

Staff for the Thrift Store are asking that all donations only be brought in during store hours, as any items left outside are likely to be ruined by weather and will be discarded.

The store will also follow practices handed down by Alberta Health Services (AHS) to ensure a safe shopping environment for customers. Some of these practices include frequently sanitizing the store and donations, PPE for staff and physical distancing.

“We are working hard to create a safe shopping environment in all of our Thrift Stores across our Division before they reopen,” says Major Al Hoeft, The Salvation Army’s Divisional Secretary for Public Relations. “We are excited our Wetaskiwin store is reopening so people can once again shop and recycle, helping us assist the vulnerable in our communities.”
