Water St. Boutique is one of the unique ways Grand Avenue Club provides opportunities for its members to contribute to the community. In this pre-vocational job training setting, members get the job training they need for re-entering the workforce, all in a safe, comfortable environment by receiving and sorting donations to decide what is suitable for sale; do necessary cleaning or laundering; waiting on customers; research items on the internet to do appropriate pricing; dress the mannequins and change the stock every season.
Because everything we sell is donation, more often than not garments will need a cleaning before they are appropriate to be sold. This comes at a cost for cleaning products and dry cleaning bills. Your monthly donation of $10 will towards covering the cost so that our very own upscale resale can circulate higher quality clothing through our process at a faster rate, making newer stock available to our customers.
