The Salvation Army thrift stores host Fall Savings Spectacular

One of my favorite places to shop resale is The Salvation Army thrift store. Just recently while looking for t-shirts, our teenage daughter found a jacket and a winter coat that she loves. Both combined cost us less than thirty dollars. A total score for our tight budget.


The Salvation Army’s Fall Savings Spectacular is just around the corner. All 34 metro Detroit Salvation Army thrift store locations will offer 50 percent off clothing on Saturday, Nov. 7. Doors will be open at the nonprofit’s 32 thrift stores from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at its two dollar stores in Pontiac and Detroit.

Enjoy great deals on coats, scarves, gloves and hats among other winter essentials. In addition to the clothing sale, hourly bonus deals will be announced in various departments throughout the day, giving guests even more value.

“The last few Michigan winters have been record setting,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “We know that families need warm weather essentials to prepare for the winter season, and they can pick up great deals on those pieces while making a difference in the lives of families benefiting from our adult rehabilitation programs.”

Proceeds from all stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Centers, independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults.

All thrift store merchandise is donated by community members. Help The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center continue its work by dropping off gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and toys to the nearest Salvation Army thrift store donation center.

  1. Sounds like people will be able to get good bargains on those dates!
    A new Salvation Army thrift store came to our town a few months ago. I rarely shop for the clothes because they’re not categorized by size. I have, however, came home with a lot of home décor and craft supplies.
