News: I forgot my phone when I went out and about in Southington today so no pictures. I also thought my foot was getting better, but as I walked from Goodwill to Price Chopper (next plaza over) my foot was in a lot of pain and I was walking with a limp. My foot is still in a lot of pain at 7:30PM Thursday 10/19. - Brammy

The former Acme Super Saver in Bath, NY is now a Salvation Army store.

My buddy Rodent and I went to the one in Bristol, CT last Thursday. What a dump. It's in half of a former Rickel's. After Rickel's closed, the site became a Pergament and they only took half the Rickel space, so a new store front was created. It stayed vacant for many years before becoming the Salvation Army Thrift Store. (The old Pergament is now Sears Hardware).

Originally The Salvation Army Thrift store in Bristol was located at 25 Collins Road in the former Inside Outlet Store. After being there for several years and suffering at least 3 arson fires on their loading docks they moved  into The Mall at Bristol Center. They were there for a couple years before they closed down for a while. They wanted to find another location on Route 6. That's when they moved into the old Rickel. (Just for the record the old 25 Collins Road Building was renovated nicely into Medical Office Buildings. It doesn't resemble the old Inside Outlet store that used to be there along with ARROW (now Beacon) Pharmacy).

The Salvation Army Thrift Store in Bristol I mentioned in the above post from 2009 has since closed. They closed in February 2012.

The New Britain, CT Salvation Army Thrift Store closed. When? Unknown. The 2012 picture on Google Maps shows it as an abandoned building. It was at 165 Arch Street.

This former Frank's Nursery & Crafts in Eastgate, OH was vacant until 2008 or so.

Salvation Army Super Store on the hill above Century III Mall in West Mifflin, PA.
This location was formerly a Sears Homelife furniture store.  Sears built this location which
only remained in business a very short time (too many other cheaper options to buy
furniture nearby).  Some of the house/room sets used by Homelife to display furniture
are still used by the store to display donated items.  This is a VERY large thrift store.

I think that some active malls that are going to loose longtime anchors like JCPenny, Sears, and Macy's might just replace these stores with Salvation Army thrift stores.

Only if they divided the space up. Those anchor spots are huge well over 100,000 Square Feet. I remember the one that had been in Bristol was a little more than 17,000 Square Feet and they told me that was a big store for them.

A new Salvation Army just opened in half of the now divided former Ames Department Store in Dayville, CT. Also would like to note that Harbor Freight Tools has moved in next door to the Salvation Army, making the location completely filled with stores. I haven't honestly seen that many cars in the parking lot of the plaza ever, even when Ames and Beit Bros. supermarket was there lol.

Yeah but I can't see a thrift store bringing much traffic to the rest of the mall, also it's unlikely they could afford to pay the same amount for rent that a actual anchor store would pay.

Was that location in Dayville an old Fair Department Store? What happened to Beit Bros?

anyone know what the Salvation Army on Transit road in Amherst/Clarence NY used to be? The red striping on the walls says to me it used to be something else.

It's funny, the store is full of old retail stuff, including baskets and carts from Hills, Ames, Vix, and A M & A's.
