Salvation Army Struggles With Increasing Demand
And in Sandusky in northern Ohio, the Salvation Army is closing its thrift store, putting six people out of work.
Malcolm Campbell, 53, said he depends on the Salvation Army for its $1.99 jeans and other inexpensive items.
"I don't spend high-dollar money on clothing," he said outside a thrift store near downtown Columbus. "If this weren't here, I guess I'd have to shop at Wal-Mart or Kmart."
