GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – The Salvation Army says it will be some time before it can reopen a Colorado thrift store after the roof collapsed.
No serious injuries were reported, even though 22 people were inside the Grand Junction store when the roof fell on Friday. The cause is unknown.
Salvation Army officials tell the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel they'll clean up the exterior, but other work likely won't happen until after the holidays. They say the staff is turning its attention to people who need food or toys for their families.
Salvation Army Capt. Dan Wilson says 800 people have already signed up for holiday assistance.
After engineers assess the damage, the Salvation Army will decide whether to repair the structure or raze it and build another.
