— Parents looking for back to school fashions at prices that won’t break the bank need to head to Brand Used Clothing, 8048 Miller Rd., Suite D.
Owned by Lennon resident Christy Klenk, Brand Used Clothing offers trendy clothes for men, women, children and infants. The store also carries maternity wear, scrubs, smocks and accessories, including shoes and jewelry. Most of the brands carried at the store are Abercrombie & Fitch, Aeropostale, American Eagle, Buckle (BKE), Children’s Place, Express, Gap, Gymboree, Hollister, Justice, Motherhood, Maurices, Old Navy, Silver and Tommy Hilfiger.
When asked why she opened the store, Klenk cited the high prices for clothing. “I wanted to make it affordable for all people to buy brand name clothing, especially for teens,” she said. “Some of the biggest sellers are the teen clothes.”
Brand Used Clothing is unlike other resale shops, and lives up to its motto of being affordable. The prices for items range from $1.99-7.99, with most items being in the $1.99-5.99 range. “There are a few $9.99 items,” said manager Tracy Bost of Owosso. “Jeans are $3.99 and people can’t believe how much the jeans cost here.”
Currently, the store is running a sale where some items are 25 percent off. “We just went into fall and winter wear, and we’re trying to clear out the summer items,” Klenk said. Brand Used Clothing also has infant/toddler Halloween costumes, just in time for the holiday.
Along with Klenk and Bost, the store employs Elizabeth Barker of Durand, who fills in when needed. Brand Used Clothing is open noon-6 p.m. Tuesday- Saturday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call the store at 810-875-3600 or visit www.brandusedclothing.
