Question: When did you first discover the CCPC Clothing Boutique?
“About three years ago, when I came up for an MLK Jr Human Rights Commission held at CCPC, I met Rob Harter. After the meeting, Rob asked me if I had checked out the Boutique, and I said “What Boutique?”. I looked around and within 5 minutes I called my work to tell them I would not be returning that day and told my husband I would be late arriving home.” – Dr. Jackie Thompson
Question: What keeps you coming back?
“The volunteers and staff are so wonderful. We love all of the international and one-of-a kind clothing items – they make us feel well-traveled and well-dressed! We love that all of the proceeds go back to the community and support youth programming. It is our favorite place to shop in all the world.” – – Dr. Jackie Thompson
Question: What is your shopping strategy?
Jackie sets an alarm to leave Layton with her husband Ed promptly at 9AM so that they can arrive at the CCPC Boutique by 10AM. They spend 5 minutes walking the entire store – a quick cursory overview. Then they strategically begin selecting items, trying them on, and assembling large amounts of clothing for purchase!
