COVINGTON - The Salvation Army Thrift Store, located at 5193 Washington St., will be having an entire day of activities in celebration of Easter.

The store will be closed on Good Friday, but doors will open at 10 a.m. Saturday for shopping as well as planned events.

An Easter egg hunt for children 10 and under will take place from noon until 1 p.m.

"This is our first-ever Easter egg hunt here, and it is open to anyone in the community who would like to come," said manager Jody Carver. "There will be candy, balloons and Easter baskets donated by Cracker Barrel and Chick-fil-A free kids' meal coupons."

For the adults, a drawing will be held every hour from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. To register, customers will need to put their name on the back of a Salvation Army store receipt for Saturday. Prizes include a RCA DVD player and an assortment of gift certificates from Covington vendors.
