Talk about being priced to move! We hear that a Salvation Army outlet in Pontiac is closing on June 4, and until that day everything is marked down to 50 cents.

The Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) is closing due to continued, costly building repair and maintenance issues. A spokesperson said that closing the 10,000-square-foot center and showroom on Perry Street in Pontiac was a "very difficult decision." Three area locations will continue to serve the greater Pontiac area in Auburn Hills, Orchard Lake, and Rochester Hills.

The center will continue to accept donations, and the store will keep regular business hours until it closes for good at 9 p.m. Monday, June 4.
