SUMMIT, NJ - The Junior League of Summit (JLS) Thrift Shop will host a Back to School event, which will feature gently used children’s clothing and school necessities, beginning August 5 through August 7.

The Back to School event kicks off the fall season with items necessary to get children ready to start the school year in style.  Everything is expected to sell for at least 50% off retail prices. The Back to School event will include gently used children’s clothing along with accessories such as pencils, binders, and gifts for teachers.

"Loading the kids up with school supplies and clothes for the new school year can be expensive and overwhelming.  We're thrilled to offer area families a Back to School shopping experience that's both affordable and convenient.  It's just one of the many cost-saving events The Junior League of Summit offers throughout the year," said JLS president Jolie Steppe.

The Shop is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m, and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m..

The Shop also accepts donations during regular shop hours and also on Mondays, in the summer, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Donations of new or gently used clothing, toys, and household items are greatly appreciated up until 30 minutes before the shop closes.  Donations of clothing should be free of stains or holes and toys should be in full working order.
 
The JLS Thrift Shop is located at 37 DeForest Avenue.
