Arrival of Mark’s clothing store offers tempting foreshadow of future What’s In Store inventory
The recent opening of Mark’s Work Wearhouse in Kitimat, hailed as a positive development for local retail options, also provides hopeful promise to future inventory at the What’s In Store thrift shop uptown.
Mark’s contains a wide selection of clothing, shoes, and accessories. Residents are chomping at the bit to spy the first showing of Mark’s inventory at the second-hand store.
“Can you imagine finding a men’s sweater with tag still on during a Saturday bag sale?” asked Bonnie Short. “It’d be the most amazing thing ever.”
Retail analysts say it could take anywhere from 3 months to 18 months after a store opens for merchandise starts to appear with any regularity at second-hand stores.
“You know one time I picked up a t-shirt from Old Navy, perfect condition,” continued Short, unprompted. “You can imagine the excitement that caused for my nephew on Christmas morning.”
