TORONTO, Aug. 16, 2019 /CNW/ - The Salvation Army Thrift Store is celebrating National Thrift Shop Day with the millions of people who love to thrift and who make donations of clothes and household items. The event is happening in all of its 106 stores across Canada this August 17, 2019.
To celebrate being one of the oldest Thrift Stores serving Canada and the communities its stores across the country serve, a fun filled Thrift Shop Day event is happening with 30% off all items in-store and a promotional contest with the organization's mascot 'Shieldy'.
"We're very different in what we do and offer as compared to other thrift stores," says Ted Troughton, Managing Director of The Salvation Army Thrift Store, National Recycling Operations. "The goal of our stores is to provide support for The Salvation Army's programs, services and emergency relief efforts which serve the communities where our generous donors, guests and those in need live side by side."
By shopping and donating to The Salvation Army Thrift Store, the community can support local Salvation Army programs, services and emergency relief efforts that provide support to over 1.6 million Canadians each year. The Salvation Army Thrift Store's National Recycling Operation now has stores across the country with a modern day Brigade consisting of over 2,200 employees. Donations of items can be brought to each store's dedicated donor welcome centre everyday.
