The Salvation Army of Rome is proud to announce the grand opening of the new Family Store in the Gala Shopping Center. The move represents a significant increase in the footprint of the store allowing for more product sales. Supporters will not only be able to shop the new Rome Family Store but also to drop off at that location as well as drop off on 2nd Ave. The 2ndAvenue location closed as of August 11. The warehouse behind the 2nd Avenue store will continue to serve as the primary location to prep contributions for sale.
 
The proceeds from the Family Store support the ministry of the Salvation Army including: the homeless shelter for men and women, feeding program, music and camp programs, utility support, a seniors ministry along with other programs.
 
A ribbon cutting at the new location will be held at 10 a.m., Gala Plaza, on the 29th of August.
