Howard Olsen was the very first customer of the new Salvation Army Thrift Store in Aldergrove on Saturday morning, purchasing this large piggybank.

There was a huge turnout for the store opening with long line-ups of happy customers at the cash registers. All proceeds from the store will go to the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope transition housing in Langley City.

Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese helped Major James Haagland and Troy Gagliardi snip the ribbon for the new Salvation Army Thrift Store in Aldergrove on Saturday morning.

The Thrift Store, located at 3111 – 272 Street in Aldergrove’s downtown, welcomes donations of quality used and new goods for re-sale. Donations must be delivered to the store during business hours and must not be left in the open, after-hours.

For information call the store, 604-381-0055.
