GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

On Saturday the Salvation Army Family Store in Gulfport celebrates a makeover with a grand reopening from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

According to Salvation Army officials, the store is more organized. And that's allowed them to offer more items because there is now more space. The store sells everything from clothing, furniture, home appliances and jewelry.

"We're just trying to make folks aware that we need their gently used items bring them in. We resell them so that we can put money back into the overall budget and help folks that are less fortunate," said Major Gary Sturdivant with the Salvation Army.

Hotdogs, drinks, door prizes, music and 25 members with the fraternity Upsilon Phi Upsilon helped to bring an exciting atmosphere to shoppers during the reopening celebration.

"We've had a lot of our members just standing at the door. We've had them on the road with signs kind of waving people in. We've had members dancing. Kind of bringing the crowd in just having a real good time," said National Vice President of Upsilon Phi Upsilon Shawn Esco.

The Salvation army family store is always looking for donations.

If you have something you'd like to donate, you can either drop it off at the store or if it's a large load have it picked up by calling 1-800-728-7825.

The Salvation Army Family Store is located at 615 Pass Road in Gulfport, MS 39501.

    As Ja-Naya Thompson's short life was celebrated, there were a lot of tears and hugs as hundreds of people paid their respects during the visitation and the funeral service.
