Junior League goes to longer hours

The Junior League of Charlotte WearHouse is moving to a year-round schedule with longer shopping hours, six days a week, starting Friday, June 1.

The store, which opened in 1936, used to operate on a summer and fall schedule with varying hours. Now, the thrift and consignment store will be open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday, all year.

“Not only are our customers able to have an extra hour to shop in the evening, but our volunteers will also have an extra hour to reach their JLC commitment goal,” said Michele Stack, the store manager, in an email.

The store is hosting two "Happy Hour" events (non-alcoholic) on Friday, June 1 and Saturday, June 2, to celebrate the longer hours. Featuring refreshments, giveaways and shopping specials, the Happy Hours will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Run by volunteers, the non-profit JLC WearHouse donates proceeds from its sales to the Junior League of Charlotte's community initiatives.
