PHOENIX — The Salvation Army opened a new family thrift store in Chandler on Thursday.

Chandler Vice Mayor Terry Roe was in attendance for the ceremonial ribbon-cutting, officially opening the shop.

The store is offering discounted prices on new and gently-used donated goods that will help fund the Salvation Army’s adult alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

“We are thrilled with the turnout today, and we are extremely excited to open this store in Chandler,” said Maj. Darren Stratton, The Salvation Army Western Territory Administrator for Business for Adult Rehabilitation Centers.

“We encourage people to donate to and shop at The Salvation Army’s Family Thrift Stores to help provide a new lease on life for people and families affected by substance abuse. One person’s old chair is another person’s new outlook.”

Salvation Army thrift stores throughout the Valley are the primary funding source for the rehab programs located at the Adult Rehabilitation Center in Phoenix, according to The Salvation Army’s press release.

The substance abuse rehab program comes at no cost for its patients and accepts men and women ages 21-64.

Programs can last from six months to a year depending upon each patient’s individual needs.
