The Qualicum Beach Salvation Army thrift store is open for business again.
The store, which closed due to COVID-19, is following its Parkville counterpart, which re-opened on June 10.
Funds from the store support a variety of local programs and services, so the re-opening will help garner funds for the food bank, the soup kitchen and more.
“As a result of the pandemic, the need for affordable clothing and household items will be very high in the days, weeks, and months ahead,” says Bonnie Brown, business manager, in a press release. “During these scary and unpredictable times, we’ve remained committed to helping individuals and families in our community and we hope people will return to our store so we can continue that work.”
