Avon Salvation Army Store Opening in November

Store began construction near the RTA parking lot last spring.

The new Salvation Army store, under construction since spring 2012, is set to open in November.

Construction began in May on a parcel between SR 83 and Main Street and will be wrapping-up in October.

The store is 27,000 square feet and includes 19,000 square feet of shopping space filled with bargain-priced clothing, household items, electronics, books, toys, furniture and collectables.

The new store is designed to improve the shopping experience for its customers and will include “Family Day” discounts on Wednesdays.

“Our new Family Store will offer more selection and more bargains that appeal to everyone in order to provide our customers with a better shopping experience and support our social services work,” Captain Patrick Wilson, who oversees The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Cleveland, said.  “We really look forward to contributing to the community at all levels.”

The new store will bring more than 30 new jobs to Avon and will allow the organization to provide better assistance for people in the community who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, and other life issues. Revenues from the Family Store will support the charity’s rehabilitation center that offers services free of charge. Sales from the family thrift store are its sole source of funding. Families in need may also receive vouchers for free furniture or clothing from the store through other Salvation Army programs.
