Jefferson City Salvation Army closes after problems with 2019 flooding


The Jefferson City Salvation Army announced on Thursday its store on Michigan Street was closed until further notice after.

A news release from the store said problems have persisted since it flooded last year.

Salvation Army spokeswoman Nancy Holloway said water damage caused soft spots in the floor and damaged a barrier in the family store's basement. She included a structural engineer is scheduled to assess the building on April 2.

"We didn't want to endanger any shoppers or staff members," Holloway said.

She included an environmental study found some mold issues in the building after floodwaters receded.

Holloway included 10 people work at the family store. She said temporary positions have been offered to the staff members so they can continue working.

Holloway said the closure does not affect the Salvation Army Center of Hope and Social Services facility located on Jefferson Street.
