Last week we reported that demolition was soon to begin on the Salvation Army thrift store on the corner of Bedford Avenue and North 7th Street in Williamsburg, but the big remaining question was what would replace the building. As it turns out, it will be a new Salvation Army, according to Denise Richardson, the Salvation Army’s director of communications for the organization’s Greater New York division. Building plans have already been filed for a replacement structure. Major John G. Swires, who operates the store at 176 Bedford Avenue, says that “it will be replaced with new and improved Salvation Army Thrift store.” So take your Apple store rumors elsewhere…once again!
