Department of Transitional Assistance

Welcome to the Department of Transitional Assistance Website

Departments - Garment District

Every morning when the store opens (except Fridays) we take an 850lb bale of clothing – snap open the wires and let the public shop. On Saturday & Sunday we put out multiple bales. Everything is mixed together – mens, women’s kids – every style and decade all mixed together. At various times of the week we fill tables with paired shoes, bric-a-brac, purses, bags & belts. You pay by weight, the cost is $2.00 per pound. It’s an unusual & fun way to shop and no two days are the same.

All items are $2.00/lb!
