The Charlottesville Salvation Army Thrift Store on Cherry Avenue is celebrating its grand re-opening Friday and Saturday with door prizes every hour, games and face painting.

The revamped store features new hours, workers and product categories. Most notably, the store is better organized, making it easier for people to find their bargains. The money spent on those bargains goes to a good cause.

"All the money raised here goes over to support the various Salvation Army programs here in the Charlottesville community," explained Major Bruce Smith. "I'm talking about our shelter for homeless persons and our soup kitchen, where we feed people 365 days a year, and our transitional housing."

The new hours are from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. during the week and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

They have also expanded their pick-up hours with a new truck.

The thrift store is always looking for purchases, volunteers and donations.
