The Salvation Army has put its property on Redford Street up for sale and will be moving into the old post office building on Argyle Street by the summer.

The real estate listing was online last week. On Feb. 11 the Salvation Army released a statement saying that for “convenience and accessibility of those we serve, and to maximize operational efficiencies,” they would be moving to a facility where they could house all their services in one building.

The Salvation Army church, food bank,  family services and thrift store will operate out of the old post office building at 4877 Argyle St., across from city hall, the statement read.

Port Alberni Salvation Army Lt. Michelle Cale was not available for comment before the News went to press.

The property on Redford, which stretches a full city block from Fourth to Fifth Avenues has been listed for $439,000 with Royal LePage.
