Partnership’s Thrift And Consignment Store Rebranded As Upscale Resale Shop

Friday, June 1, 2018

Partnership for Families, Children and Adults announces that Partnership’s Thrift and Consignment store is taking on a new name and look.

"Cause Cloth is a refreshing, hip and clean makeover of the thrift store seeking to draw on a demographic that may not typically shop second hand. While still selling gently used clothes, Cause Cloth will incorporate boutique and high-end brand clothing. Many clothing pieces are new with tags. All proceeds will continue to benefit Partnership and their mission of empowering people and building community," officials said.

Modeled after other successful non-profit endeavors, the hope is shoppers will be inspired by the thought of bolstering a local non-profit, while enjoying a great shopping experience. Cause Cloth will be both an economic driver for Partnership and offer an "affordable and unique" shopping experience in downtown Chattanooga.

Still located across from the Bessie Smith Cultural Center on Martin Luther King Boulevard and surrounded by popular restaurants and venues, the urban environment adds to the modern feel of this clothing store. As the rebranding campaign unfolds, Partnership will release photographs from local personalities modeling the clothing.

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, June 22 at 11 a.m. at the Cause Cloth, 301 E. M.L.K. Blvd. in Chattanooga. Drinks and light appetizers will be served. CEO Pam Ladd and other guests will be on hand to greet the public. Also, special discounts will be given out for grand opening weekend.

The first time I met Bill Lee, the guy who is triggering a huge turnout of Tennessee voters across the state, I instantly liked him, admired him, and must have told a dozen friends that day we have the most exciting guy going to the Governor’s Mansion we’ve ever had. The best reason is because Bill Lee is real. His opponent, Karl Dean, is a Democrat and a longtime politician. Go ... (click for more)
