Salvation Army Thrift Store Grand Re-Opening in Grand Junction, Colorado
The Salvation Army thrift stores in Western Colorado have been playing musical chairs for a while. Today, Friday, February 25, 2022, the new store opened at an old location at 1155 N. 1st Street.

Great Kickoff For This Grand Junction Colorado Store
The last time I saw anything like this I was watching the Great Cabbage Patch Doll Shortage of the 1980s unfold on television. Okay, it wasn't that bad, but it was certainly "aggressive." It seems deal-seekers take their passion very seriously.
The doors weren't open 30 seconds before a few people had armloads of stuff. This store, like most thrift stores, carries clothing, furniture, toys, books, and decorative items.
Not My Bag
My mother lived for stores such as this. It seems that bit of genetic material did not get passed down to me. Thrift stores aren't my thing. I do sort of enjoy refinishing solid-wood furniture, and from time to time visit these stores in search of quality pieces. In all fairness, this store had a handful of cabinets I wouldn't mind owning.
How Are The Deals At This Grand Junction Store?
That's a matter of opinion. I was surprised at how many brand-new still-in-the-box items this store carried. My limited experience with stores such as this excludes me as an authority in these matters.
With that in mind, here are a few items, accompanied by their marked prices, to give you an idea of the deals at this store. Please note: the items pictured here are probably already long gone. In addition, the prices marked are subject to change at any time and without notice.
