Albion Park Salvos Store will celebrate its grand reopening on Saturday 17 June at 9am.
 
The store, located at 169 Tongarra Rd, will be officially reopened by Shellharbour City Council Mayor Marianne Saliba.
 
An opening sale will follow the ceremony, featuring more than 8000 recycled garments, homewares, shoes, bags and accessories.
 
Salvos Stores Area Manager Philip Wahba said the store had been revamped and expanded in response to increased demand from the local community.
 
“People from a diverse range of socioeconomic backgrounds now shop at Salvos Stores,” Mr Wahba said.
 
“The store will have an even wider range of preloved and recycled furniture, clothing and other household items on sale at bargain prices.
 
“There is also increasing customer demand for our range of toiletries, cleaning products and other new household goods.
 
“We continue to work closely with Government at all levels in developing sustainability programs which help reduce landfill.
 
“Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers have been working overtime to get the store ready for this grand opening and I thank them for their commitment and efforts.”
 
Shellharbour Mayor Marianne said that Salvos Stores provided a vital service to the community.
 
“All profits go towards running vital Salvation Army programs, which assists the less fortunate in our city,” Cr Saliba said.
         
“By shopping at and donating to Salvos Stores, customers and donors are also helping the environment by recycling their unwanted goods,” she said.
