Brand names now available downtown

ROGERSVILLE - It may be hard to believe, but at one local clothing store mere pocket change can clothe a family with designer duds. And the store is now bigger than ever at a new downtown Rogersville location.

    Three years ago, when Libby Lowe opened a uniform and scrub store, she never dreamed her new business would one day transition into a resale shop with 800 consigners, Halo's Closet.

    "I was a nurse and I wanted to sell uniforms because I had a hard time finding them in Rogersville," Lowe said. "People would come in looking for a consignment shop that used to be in the same location, so we decided to open a consignment business."

    There are two options for individuals looking to get some extra cash for clothing they no longer wear. Halo's Closet directly purchases gently-used clothing from Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch and American Eagle from individuals. If sellers want to try and make additional money, or have clothing from other stores, Halo's Closet allows for a consignment option where the shop places the item on sale and once it sells, the seller and the shop each share 50 percent of the profit.

    "The store has been very successful because we opened three years ago, just about the time that the economy started to go down, and families wanted quality clothing at a reasonable cost," Lowe said.

    There are items for the entire family including children, plus-size, men's and women's, as well as household items, jewelry, makeup and purses. Items in the store can start as low as 50 cents for items on the clearance rack, with some items even given at no cost.

    "We have free clothing day on Tuesdays," Lowe said. "People can come pick up items that were either donated to us at no charge or that our consigners did not want to take back after they were in the store." 

    With the start of school approaching quickly, Lowe stated that this is the best time of the year to bring consignment items into the store, but also a great time to check out their deals.

    "Last year, I had a woman who clothed both of her children to go back to school for six dollars, shoes and all," Lowe said. "It is a win-win because consigners who bring in their items get a little extra money and get the items out of their house, and people can find great brand name clothing for good prices."

    Halo's Closet is open from 10:30 a.m.to 5 p.m. on Monday, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. For more information, call (423) 921-9010 or go to their store located a 301 East Main Street in Rogersville.
