Newsletter - Grand Expansion Celebration, Capri Pants, Shorts, Sping and more...

Join us for our Grand Expansion celebration!

stpats_04We're celebrating the expansion of the store all day Saturday, March 17th (10 a.m. - 5 p.m.)! We hope you'll join us for the fun.

The first 200 customers making a purchase will receive one of our cool blue Clothes Less Traveled tote bags.

Plus, find a lucky shamrock in the store and you'll save at the register, too. If you don't want to go hunting for shamrock coupons, grab last week's Citizen newspaper and find our ad with the $5 off coupon! The coupon is only good on Saturday.

We're planning to have a great time all day St. Patrick's Day to officially kick-off our expanded sections and the new space. Just think --- we now have 20,000 sq. ft. of shopping space to fill. Can you tell we're excited?


Spring is here...

Spring clothingWell, Spring is here at the Clothes Less Traveled even is it doesn't officially start until March 20th! The weather certainly seems to say Spring, doesn't it?

We have a store full of wonderful Spring clothing and items!

We have expanded our clothing departments, along with many other sections. You'll not only find more clothing but more shoes, purses and other accessories, too.

Everywhere you look you'll find something new to catch your attention.

Since we'll be celebrating the Grand Expansion on Saturday, and we just had our huge 50% off the entire store sale we will NOT have a sale this Wednesday. However, there's so much to see and our prices are so great, you won't miss it, will you? Come on Saturday and we'll make it up to you!

Look at all those beautiful shoes in the photo! We have an excellent selection of shoes for any age. See the purses in the background? Wait until you see all the purses...


New Book Nook

New Book NookWe're thrilled with our new Book Nook! You'll think you just walked into a top notch book store. You can even stop and read for a few minutes if  the mood strikes.

Our books are well organized. They are arranged by type (fiction, non-fiction, crafts, health, etc.) and most are alphabetical by author to make it easier for you to find the perfect book for your reading pleasure.

booknook1The Book Nook is filled with books for all ages from not-yet-reading to where-are-my-reading-glasses. Plus, there are CDs, DVDs, videos, computer games and other related items in the brightly lit area.

You'll be amazed at the selection of books and the size of the new Book Nook. It's bright, cheerful and comfortable. Come check it out soon.

(If you need a comfy chair or reading lamp, we have those, too!)

Thank you to the Joseph Sams School

Thanks to the Joseph Sams School, we just received a donation of 783 new and very nicely (barely) used books! Zack Stutts, an Instructional Support Teacher at the Sams School, spearheaded the project. The school started a new initiative under the guidance, and through the inspiration of, Marie Sams called "Operation Pay It Forward". They are doing great things in the community!

You'll find the books in our new Book Nook! They're going fast so zip in soon.

Semi-Annual Clearance Sale a HUGE Success

THANK YOU for all of your ongoing support! This years Semi-Annual Clearance Sale was a great success. Without you we couldn't give so much to all the wonderful charities in the surrounding area.

After the sale we closed for a few days so we could give the store a good spit-shine and pack up all the old Fall and Winter items.

Thank You Volunteers

Putting out new merchandiseOur volunteers are the best in the world! They are so generous in spirit and in the giving of their time and talents.

During our Spring and Fall changeover times we especially want to thank our fantastic volunteers. They scrubbed, boxed, loaded, checked out items to ensure they were top quality, shifted sections and did SO much.

If you would like to volunteer, please let us know. You can give as little as 3 hours a month and still be a big help. Send an email to volunteer@clotheslesstraveled.org.
