Kristi Wee’s consignment shop has been at 9121 W. Central for more than three years.
“The rent was outrageous,” she says. “I couldn’t afford it there anymore.”
The store is opening Sept. 22 at 728 W. Douglas in Delano where Junk in the Trunk Clothing was before moving to 805 W. Maple.
Wee says in addition to more affordable rent, there’s more foot traffic in Delano as well as a lot of local shops.
“I’m hoping to feed off of them.”
Her consignment shop sells maternity outfits and clothing for infants and toddlers. The store also carries shoes, toys and accessories.
Wee is planning a grand opening in early October and what she’s calling a quiet opening for now.
“We’re just going to open the doors and see what happens,” she says. “We might still be in the process of doing stuff.”
