After many years of service to the Binghamton community, the Salvation Army thrift store on Griswold Street is closing on July 15. 

The location closure comes as it can no longer keep up its efforts financially. The store has provided hundreds of thousands of items of clothing, home goods, and even furniture to Binghamton residents. 

The Salvation Army services will still remain available to those in need.

Administrator of the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center in Binghamton Major Patricia Kurtz released the following statement earlier today:

"This is a heartbreaking decision for us at the Salvation Army to close a thrift store that has been such a critical part of the community for a long time. However, financially, we can no longer sustain the efforts at this location. The Binghamton community has blessed us by embracing us for so long, and we thank them for their support over the years."
