FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – A new Salvation Army Family Store is now open in Florence. The location opened Friday morning at 10 a.m. at 1721 West Palmetto Street, at the old Hancock Fabrics store next to Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.

The store features donated clothing, furniture and other items, with proceeds going to the Salvation Army, which they will use to assist people in need.

“When we sell items those items go to support a lot of our programs we do locally in the area," said Major Michael Rogers with the Salvation Army. "Every Salvation Army is a local entity within its community even though we are an international entity, each unit pulls its resources from the community to serve within the community, we don’t have a hierarchy where donations come from up somewhere higher and down.”

Rogers continued: "I’m hoping we can do a lot better job being able to meet needs. We always have a request and demand but a lot of times supplying those demands is very difficult when you have resources that are limited, so we are hoping this will boost a lot of resources to be able to do as much as we possibly can when people are truly in need.”
