St. Cloud, Minn.-The Salvation Army Family Store in St. Cloud is up for sale, but will remain open until it is sold. The ministry’s services and programs only continue to grow and are not impacted by this sale.
“The Salvation Army has been serving St. Cloud since 1896, we’re not going anywhere,” said Major Mike Parker, leader of the St. Cloud Salvation Army.
After nearly five years of business, donations to the Family Store have slowed and it simply is not profitable enough to stay open.
“The whole purpose of having a store is to support the programs we offer to the community,” Parker explained. “When the numbers don’t add up, it’s time to focus on our other efforts to raise money.”
The Saint Cloud Salvation Army thanks donors, volunteers and shoppers for supporting the Family Store and says it will operate as usual until a sale is complete.
