ALBERT LEA, MN — It is August and that means back to school sales are in full swing, but one store in our area is a little bit different.
The Salvation Army Family Store in Albert Lea is holding a sale on children’s clothing just in time for going back to school.
Anything from shoes to coats in the children’s department is priced at 79 cents.
Not only does it help families looking for clothes, the money raised goes back to other programs as well.
“It’s just one of those sales that we try to do every fall before school, try to help give back, try to make it a little bit easier to put families in clothes at a little bit more reasonable price,” said Captain Jim Brickson of the Albert Lea Salvation Army.
Brickson said he starts hearing people ask about the sale in July, which runs until August 30th. The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
