Kids Closet Sale moves to new location – Times News Online
Published on June 24, 2022 at 12:15 p.m.
The Kids Closet Sale announced this week that it is moving its fall event to the new Slatington Expo Center at Slatington Marketplace. The sale was previously held at Penn’s Peak.
“This more spacious location will provide shippers and shoppers with a more efficient experience,” said Jen Benninger, advertising director for The Times News and coordinator of the Kids Closet Sale.
The sale is scheduled for September 13-15 at the center, located on Route 873 in Slatington.
“We are excited to move to this centralized location, with easy access for our buyers from all of the counties we serve,” Benninger said.
The semi-annual consignment sale is a win for families across the region. People can bring in clothes, toys, books and other children‘s items they no longer need and sell them on consignment. In turn, people can buy these barely used items at a fraction of the cost of buying new items.
“With costs for families at an all-time high, we expect this to be our most popular sale yet,” Benninger said.
During the spring event, the average sender earned $301 and sold 106 items.
“This event goes a long way toward helping people clean out their closets and fill in some budget gaps,” Benninger said. In the spring, 19,000 items were available for sale.
