The Salvation Army announced it is closing its thrift store in Pontiac permanently on Monday, June 4. Through then, all store merchandise is being sold at just $.50 per item.

According to the Salvation Army, they are closing the location because of continued, costly building repair and maintenance issues.

“It has been a very difficult decision to close our Perry Street location,” said Major Larry Manzella, administrator of The Salvation Army ARC, “but the investment required to provide customers with a safe, enjoyable shopping experience simply became too great. We have valued our long-time relationship with the Pontiac community and thank everyone for supporting us over the years.”

While they are closing, they will continue to accept donations through June 4 which will then sell at other metro Detroit locations.

There are also still three thrift stores nearby. One on Opdyke Rd. in Auburn Hills, one on Orchard Lake Rd. in Orchard Lake and one on Auburn Rd. in Rochester Hills.
