The thrill of shopping without the guilt!
Monday- October 12, 2009
A weekly publication of Next to New Resale Boutique

Well, Fall is upon us and what does that mean? Why, furnace troubles, of course!

Any of you who have ever had a commercial lease you know that these repairs fall on the tenant, not the landlord. So in order to keep N2N toasty warm this winter, here's what we're going to do:

We're holding an EXTRA storewide half price sale on Sunday, October 18th!

It'll be just like our usual First Friday Sale- everything in the shop will be half of the original price (unless already priced less). Methods of payment are cash, credit card or check. You can use your store credit but the discount won't apply.

So stick a reminder on the refrigerator and come on out:

What's on Sale the Rest of the Week?

I hope you like the Wild Card Sale 'cause we sure much so that we're doing again this week through Saturday. You remember how it works: we have cards labeled with different 30% off departments- ladies' tops, infantwear, dresses, get the idea. One card even wins you 30% off of your entire purchase.

Refresher Course

You name it, we'd like to have it. Clean out everybody's closet and come on over. We especially need children's winter clothes. Also, shoes are a hot seller and I don't need to tell you...we can never have too many shoes. Here's a refresher on our buying program:

Do the first cut for us. Don't bring anything with problems...spots, stains, smelly, know the drill.

We do our store credit buying Monday thru Thursday from 10 am to 4 pm. You don't need an appointment but our buying is on a first come, first served basis so you may have to wait a few minutes (Hint: we have TWO buyers here on Monday and Thursday so if you're pressed for time, those days are your best bet)As a rule, we don't buy on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There's often only one employee in the shop and it's impossible to give our customers the attention they deserve if we're up front buying. Thanks for understanding.

We want to buy your clothes. If your schedule prevents you from coming in during normal buying hours, just give me a call (my cell is 770-539-1911) and we'll work out a time.

Trick or Treat!

Be sure to stop by N2N in costume on Halloween and get a treat! Bring the kiddies , too...we'll be taking pictures and we'll share lots of them in the N2N Newsletter!

Speaking of Guilty Pleasures...

This is my new favorite show...GLEE, seen on FOX on Wednesdays at 9 pm, is a comedy for the aspiring underdog in all of us. The series follows an optimistic teacher who - against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach - attempts to save McKinley High's Glee Club from obscurity, while helping a group of aspiring underdogs realize their true star potential.

Each episode features musical numbers that will leave you can see most of the episodes to date on FOX on Demand- pop the popcorn and then click

Do you have Swine Flu?

Do you have H1N1
flu? Take look at this online flu self-assessment test from Emory University.

If you do have symptoms of the H1N1 flu, the website says to call and tell your doctor you might be "very sick" with the flu, and ask if you "need to be seen right now." And if you don't have H1N1 symptoms, this is a cheap way to put your mind at ease so you can get some rest.
You can also check out
