Decluttering your home? Here's where you can get rid of your stuff — some with pickup options.
The Salvation Army will close its longtime store and distribution center on Quincy Street, which was built in 1899 as a warehouse and delivery center for the one of Brooklyn’s largest and most prestigious department stores.
Following years of speculation, Chase will be the tenant in the next chapter of one of Brooklyn's biggest retail hotspots, the former site of the Salvation Army on the corner of North 7th Street and Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg.
One of the most prime retail spots in Williamsburg, if not all of Brooklyn, has finally sold years after a Salvation Army thrift store there was demolished. Developer Thor Equities is moving ahead quickly with plans for a shiny new store.
This is the sort of thing you’ll find at a thrift store – spotted at the Astoria Salvation Army
So, yeah, we are a bit late to the party on this (NSFW), and now it’s quite the earworm. But it got us thinking – do you shop at thrift stores? And if so, where are the good ones? You really can find some treasures at such places. So clue us in! We’d love to know – leave us a comment here or via twitter at @queensnycity.
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!
Demolition Starting Soon on Williamsburg Salvation Army [Brownstoner] GMAP
Although there has been buzz for some time now about how the Salvation Army intends to raze their building on the corner of North 7th And Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg and that it will be replaced by a new building, last week neighbors received demolition notices, so the structure is not long for this world. It will be replaced by a two-story building. While we weren’t able to locate a rendering for the new building, on the jump you can see a photo of the structure’s massing that the architects submitted to the city. What’s unclear to us is whether this will once again be a Salvation Army (or whether the property is in fact owned by the Salvation Army), just in more modern digs. It’s certainly a high-traffic location that would be appealing to a lot of businesses. We’re waiting to hear back from the Salvation Army for further information, but their regional office is closed today. GMAP
