Salvos celebrations sure to be a sell-out

SALVOS stores, which raise millions of dollars to support The Salvation Army with its critical work in helping people in crisis, hit a wonderful milestone in November as they celebrated a remarkable 125 years.

It has been a significant journey from 1886 when the stores first started as a "prison gate brigade home" which was specifically focused on helping less fortunate people to get clothes and other items.

Now, Salvos stores are stronger than ever, with more than 100 locations in Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

As part of the celebrations, Salvos stores are highlighting that in the past two years they have raised more than $25 million to help The Salvation Army with their local community programs which assist Australians in crisis with food, shelter, housing, counselling and more.

Salvos stores are now one of the biggest urban recyclers in the southern hemisphere - selling both pre-loved/recycled products and a new range of household products.

For the big birthday celebrations, the stores are selling everything from coffee tables, storage shelves, clothing, beautiful nativity lights and many amazing bargains with special Facebook offers.
