Macomb thrift store to close

The Salvation Army Thrift Store in Macomb will close its doors indefinitely next month.

The store has seen a decline in profits over the last few years and higher maintenance bills are making it hard to stay in business.

The thrift store is intended to provide additional revenue for the Salvation Army throughout the year after Christmas profits run out.

The organization decided to close the store before it became a financial burden on other Salvation Army services in the area.

"I would thank all of our loyal donors and customers. Without them, we wouldn't have lasted some 30 years in Macomb. This is not something we were looking forward to, closing the store, but it was a necessity," Captain Owen Thompson said.

Captain Thompson says he's in the process of looking for a new location, but hasn't had any luck.
