The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) family thrift stores will host its March Mayhem Sale Saturday, March 5. The sale will feature 50 percent off clothing and 25 percent off housewares at all metro Detroit thrift stores. Doors will be open at most stores from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at its two dollar stores in Pontiac and Detroit.
“Even with this mild winter weather, it’s challenging to predict clothing needs as temperatures fluctuate,” said Merle Miller, administrator of The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center. “At our March sale, we’ll cover everyone’s clothing needs from winter to Spring Break to summer clothes, all at affordable prices and to benefit a worthy cause.”
In addition to 50 percent savings on clothing, shoppers will have opportunities to pick up great deals on shoes, accessories, electronics, linens, furniture and more during bonus sales announced throughout the day.
All proceeds from the 35 metro Detroit thrift stores benefit The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Centers, independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for adults.
Founded by William Booth in London, England, in 1865, The Salvation Army is a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to serving people in need without discrimination. The ARC is an integral part of TSA’s mission, and offers substance-abusing adults the opportunity to rebuild their lives through a voluntary, short-term residential self-help program designed to establish a sense of dignity, self-esteem and personal strength that will allow them to resist the desire to abuse a substance and regain their rightful place as contributing members of society. Completely self-funded, the ARC draws its entire operating budget from the revenue of the 35 Salvation Army Thrift Stores located in Southeast Michigan.
