HAGERSTOWN - The reopening of the thrift store operated by The Salvation Army in Hagerstown caused excitement Monday morning among staff, officers and board members.
Others couldn't wait for it to be over.
Joe Dean leaned against a car in the parking lot. He was a customer who showed up as the store was supposed to be opening to find the ceremony in full swing.
"I use things from this store and I recycle other stuff from home," Dean said. "Eventually it all comes back."
Looking at the remodeled store, Dean said it is a lot more organized.
Sherry Wertz said she gets toys and clothes for her kids from the store.
"I also donate back to them," Wertz said.
Moving to Washington County six months ago, she and her husband had a lot of items that needed to be picked up and The Salvation Army took care of that for her.
