The Salvation Army is in full swing moving into their new building and getting everything perfect before their grand opening.
New Captain Ben Lippers is settling into his role and the business of the move.
"It is always great when you own your own building and you have everything pretty much under your own roof," explained Lippers. "We still have the old church, and we will probably do some programming in it while we still own it, other than that we will eventually have everything under one roof. That's exciting."
The Salvation Army plans to have the store opening before anything else, as they have to be out of the current building by August 31.
"Today we are going to try and move stuff that we have in the basement at the store. Still waiting for grid wall to come and get on the walls and that is in transit. We are setting up the displays at the same time and there is three drains that still needs to be replaced," continued Lippers.
"There is just a bunch of little things, but we do have occupancy so we can get going.. We hope to have the store up and and operational following the long weekend," concluded Lippers.
The Salvation Army hopes to have a grand opening ceremony sometime in October to allow another month to iron out all the kinks before they welcome the public.
