CLEARWATER — Patchington, a Clearwater-based chain of fashion boutiques, kicks off a clothing trade-in today to benefit local victims of domestic violence. Through Monday, customers may donate their gently-used clothing at Patchington's 22 Florida locations and subsequently receive up to $25 off store purchases. Customers receive 10 percent off any accessory when they donate a new personal care item, such as deodorant or toothpaste. Donated items go to the thrift store that helps fund advocacy work by Community Action Stops Abuse, a south Pinellas County domestic violence services organization and shelter. Patchington, which has held semi-annual trade-ins for more than 15 years, has three Pinellas County locations: 280 Indian Rocks Road in Belleair Bluffs, 2520-A McMullen-Booth Road in Clearwater's Northwood Plaza, and 5901 Sun Blvd. in St. Petersburg's Isla Del Sol Shopping Village.
