Due in part to the COVID-19 shutdown, the Salvation Army thrift store in Sturgis has closed.
Company officials, however, said Salvation Army will continue to offer its other services.
Sharyn Tennyson, who oversees the Salvation Army in St. Joseph and Branch counties, made the announcement Monday.
She said the thrift store has historically struggled to financially meet the expenses of being open. Having to close for the pandemic has been financially devastating, she said.
Salvation Army will continue to support the community by providing emergency assistance, food and personal items through the food pantry and meal program, Tennyson said.
Items from the store will go first to people in need.
