One retail shop in downtown Farmville provides more than just affordable options — it provides a family atmosphere.

At least that is the hope of store manager Patricia Martelli and store clerk Patsy Brown.

“We are a family here. We share hugs and love,” said Brown, the former store manager who has worked at The Salvation Army for seven years.

Martelli, who joined the staff approximately 18 months ago, added, “We see the same people every day, and if we don’t, we get concerned and start asking around if they are OK or sick. We love our customers and consider them family.”

That nurturing atmosphere and giving nature garnered The Salvation Army Store the Farmville Chamber of Commerce’s Merchant of the Month award for April.

“This is our most popular store in town, without a doubt,” Judy Gidley, director of the Farmville Chamber of Commerce, said. “There are the sweetest people working here.”

Gidley said the chamber can always count on The Salvation Army Store for support — whether through a sponsorship or participation in chamber events or entering the chamber’s window decorating contests.

“They add so much to our downtown. They are a blessing,” Gidley said.

The store also is a blessing to its customers’ wallets.

“We provide a great service. A lot of our customers walk here. They don’t have a car, and here, they can find cheaper, more affordable options,” Brown said.

Gidley added, “This store covers all economic gaps, and the merchandise is so good. Everyone in town shops here.”

The store offers its customers a wide selection in home goods, clothing, shoes and accessories, including jewelry and purses. Since its expansion, The Salvation Army of Farmville also provides its customers an option in furniture shopping.

The store receives deliveries every Monday and Thursday of new merchandise.

“Our customers can always find something different here. It is always a surprise,” Martelli said.

Brown added, “You don’t know what you’ll find coming in the door.”

The Salvation Army, 3752 S. Main St., Farmville, is open 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, except Wednesdays, when the store is closed.

A drop-off donation bin is located behind the store in the back alley. New or gently used items, including clothing, home goods, toys and books, are accepted. The Salvation Army does not accept electronics, appliances or mattresses.
