Dress for Success Orillia and Barrie is holding a one-time blowout Toonie clothing, shoe and accessory sale on Aug. 28 from 12-7 p.m. and Aug. 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Since moving in to their new office and clothing boutique in the Bayfield Mall, the organization has counted their inventory and is looking to sell the professional clothes, accessories, shoes and bags that currently fill their space — for an affordable price.

Every item available will be sold for just $2, keeping it affordable at a time when so many Canadian women are unemployed or experiencing economic hardship and uncertainty. All of the items are in excellent condition and the clothing comes in sizes 0-26.

In order to keep the sale safe and clean for those attending, there will be many protocols in place. Hand sanitizer will be available for public use, there will be a limit of 3 attendees entering the boutique at one time, masks will of course be mandatory, and in order to guarantee the health and safety of everyone, no one will be allowed to try on the clothing.

In order to make the sale accessible for everyone, cash, credit and debit will be accepted for all purchases. You can find Dress for Success Orillia and Barrie in Unit 79 of the Bayfield Mall, near Career Centre.

Please spread the word with women who you think would be interested in attending.
