Family Stores Doing the Most Good®

Family Thrift Stores

The Salvation Army Southeast Michigan Adult Rehabilitation Center operates 37 metro Detroit family thrift stores from which all proceeds benefit the nonprofit’s independently funded, 180-day residential rehabilitation program for men and women.

All Salvation Army thrift stores run on community donations. Metro Detroiters can help The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center continue its fight against drug addiction by dropping off gently used clothing, accessories, housewares, furniture and toys to the nearest Salvation Army thrift store donation center.

Types of Stores

Family Thrift Store:
The standard model of stores that The Salvation Army is known for. Each store introduces thousands of new clothing items each day of the week; this does not include items from our Bric, Linen, Shoes or Collectible departments!

This one of a kind store featuring the best of the best donations is located in Royal Oak. We admit that most shoppers have "sticker shock", but even with this shock, you can still find great treasures for unbelievably low prices when you compare them to retail.

Dollar Store:
Unlike our Family Stores, the clothing is not on racks, we have the clothing placed on tables, each row of tables are separated by Men's, Women's or Kid's. Our 2 Dollar Stores are located in Pontiac and Detroit. This unique store model calls for the true bargain hunter in us to come out.
