Successful Grand Opening of New Family Store

Last weekend’s grand opening of Salvation Army of Augusta’s family store paved the way for 860 nights of shelter at their Center of Hope, including food, clothing, supplies, and casework.

The store is located on the far-left endcap unit at 4099 Riverwatch Parkway in the same shopping center as a large Hobby store. There have been several furniture and bedding stores in that space over the years.

“We are deeply grateful for the incredible support from our community during the grand opening,” said Major Jonathan Raymer, Area Commander. “The overwhelming turnout and generosity enable us to continue our mission of meeting human needs in His name without discrimination.”

The Salvation Army follows a similar business model to competitors in the area. They take in gently used items and re-sell them to carry out their mission to fund operations at The Center of Hope shelter, which provides essential services to the homeless in the Augusta area.

Donations can be dropped off at the store from 9 AM to 6 PM, Monday through Saturday. Volunteers can sign up online at
