MEDFORD, Ore. -- The Salvation Army is getting ready to update its thrift store in Medford.
Sales from the store provides funding for local salvation army services. Those includes its food pantry, the HOPE House program, and after school programs for kids in the community.
"All of what we sell in this store goes towards the services that we have in the community and so, when the store is doing better in revenue. We’re able to have more funds available to do that kind of direct service," said Major Jason Koenig.
The store will be closed February 15 through February 27 while the work is being done. The space will be getting new paint, floor polishing, and a new layout.
"Have to spend 30 minutes trying to find something. It’s very overwhelming. We kind of see right now in our current setup. It is overwhelming. When you come in and trying to find that treasure," said Major Koenig.
The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to help with the renovation project. Anyone interested in volunteering should call (541) 773-6965.
The Salvation Army does plan to hold a grand re-opening to show off the improvements. Details of that even have not yet been released.
