Blue Mountains Mayor Daniel Myles will officially open the new Springwood Salvos Store at 8.30am this Thursday, September 5.
The new store at 63 Macquarie Road - the site of the well-known former Retravision - will feature more than 5000 recycled garments, pieces of furniture and other household items.
"Over the past few months there have been numerous enquiries from the local community regarding the opening date for this new store and a large crowd is expected," said Salvos Stores area manager Ted Greenaway.
"This store will be a vital addition to the local Blue Mountains community, both from a social benefit and environmental
Mr Greenaway said people from a diverse range of socioeconomic backgrounds shopped at Salvos stores.
He said with rising energy and food prices impacting the community, particularly senior citizens, the wide range of stock for sale at this store, including new household bathroom and cleaning products, would benefit the community.
"All profits from Salvos stores go towards running vital Salvation Army programs, which assist the less fortunate," Mr Greenaway said.
"By shopping at and donating to Salvos stores our customers and donors are also helping the environment by recycling their no longer required furniture, clothing and other items."
He said the Salvos worked closely with government at all levels in developing sustainability programs to help reduce landfill.
He thanked the dedicated team of staff and volunteers for their efforts in getting the store ready for the grand opening.
People wishing to donate to Salvos stores should call 13 SALVOS (137 258) to have their donation collected, or deliver their donation during business hours to their nearest Salvos store.
