Clothes That Work, a local Dayton nonprofit organization, invites the public to a Grand Opening of the newly expanded Boutique on Thursday, October 3, 2013. A ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at 10 am and the Boutique will be open from 10am to 6pm
The CTW Boutique, located at the Montgomery County Job Center near the CTW offices, is an upscale resale shop open to the public featuring high quality clothing from many top designers and retailers. When donated clothing is too colorful, too dressy or not appropriate for interview or work situations, CTW sells it in the Boutique and online at eBay.
“At its core, this project supports greater earned revenue that will allow mission driven services for Montgomery County job seekers to increase,” said Paula Cosby, executive director of Clothes That Work. “We expect increased revenue of nine percent, allowing us to serve an additional 882 job seekers in the next five years.”
“We looked at several other location options in the Miami Valley, but ultimately the Job Center matches our mission here at Clothes That Work,” added Cosby.
CTW worked with architectural firm Roll & Associates, Inc. and interior designer Elements IV on the project.
