Last weekend, the Salvation Army opened a new family store at 602 E. Round Grove Road, just north of the mall, in Lewisville. It immediately becomes the largest family store in the DFW Metroplex.
Family stores are a part of the charity’s adult rehabilitation program. Persons in the six-month program are housed at a facility in Dallas and bussed to family stores across the Metroplex, where they work a regular shift. The stores sell name-brand clothing, home goods and electronics at discounted rates, with proceeds going toward the rehabilitation program.
Salvation Army Lewisville director Steve Thomas said he regularly drives people from Lewisville to enroll them in the program.
The Family Store is open now at 602 E. Round Grove Road on the inside of the ring around Music City Mall’s parking lot. The store is open 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
