FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Salvation Army Thrift Store is reopening their doors this Friday, June 12.
The Salvation Army says precautionary measures at the store have been taken to protect donors, customers, and employees with interactions with each other and with donations.
The following will be happening:
- enhanced daily cleaning procedures
- increased sanitization of commonly used surfaces

The staff is eager to get back to business and understand the need for affordable clothing and household items will be high in the days, weeks, and months ahead.
