    There’s a special events space on our third floor called the Board Room, and we’re using it for store happenings and sales. You’re closer to the sun up there, so now on the first Saturday of EVERY Month we’ll be holding our DOLLAR HEAVEN SALE all the way up the stairs. Yep, it’s a regular thing, we’ll have another EXTRA room (in addition to our everyday dollar room) jammed full of DOLLAR CLOTHES.

    Don’t forget, the FIRST Saturday of EVERY month!
