For sale: Former Salvation Army store on West Jefferson

Last summer, a DART bus crashed through the Salvation Army thrift store on West Jefferson at Polk. WFAA had pictures. Luckily, no one was hurt in that accident, as it happened at about 6 a.m. on a Saturday.

Unfortunately, Salvation Army has decided not to reopen the West Jefferson store; the 10,000-square-foot building is for sale. It is listed, as is, for $550,000. C.J. Dunn Commercial already is is negotiating with a potential buyer, says Patrick Patey, a Salvation Army spokesman for the Dallas area.

Salvation Army decided to make the thrift store on Village Fair its “anchor” in Oak Cliff.

“That was our smallest store,” Patey says. “So it was a good time to go ahead and let the other one be the anchor store in Oak Cliff.”

    Agreed. It was convenient and seemed to do good business.  There were always plenty of people in there. I’m surprised they wouldn’t want to maintain a presence in his part of Oak Cliff.

    I miss our little Salvation Army store.
    The one off of Ann Arbor is nice but a long way off for most people who shopped at the Jefferson one.
