UTICA, N.Y. -- After 25 years, the Salvation Army thrift store in Utica is closing.
The property was purchased by Mohawk Valley Health Systems as part of the downtown hospital project.
The Salvation Army hopes to have the majority of their inventory sold by Saturday, and will move the remainder of the goods to their Rome location.
There are thrift stores in Ilion and Rome, and the Salvation Army is looking for a place to relocate in Utica, but hasn't found anything yet.
The Salvation Army on Clinton Street is not moving or changing services, but losing the thrift store will have an effect on their budget.
Saturday is the last day of operation for the store on Lafayette Street.
