June's Walk-In Closet consignment shop is open in Brandon

Julie's Walk-In Closet opened in early May and features high-quality clothes for women and children. The store, in central Brandon, emphasizes quality over quantity and carries brand names such as: Talbots, Coldwater Creek, Ann Taylor, Kasper, Cache and New York & Co.

"Consignment stores are a great way to update a wardrobe with classic pieces for a great price," said Julianne Pomeroy, a longtime consignment shopper and the store's owner.

In addition to clothing, Julie's has shoes, purses and costume jewelry.

Julie's prices start at 30 to 40 percent off retail price during the first 60 days the clothes are in the store. After 60 days, the price drops to 50 percent off retail for one month.

Pomeroy shares a 50/50 split of the profits of all sales with sellers. Profits can be paid in cash or store credit, Pomeroy said.

"You can get a new wardrobe by selling some quality clothes," Pomeroy said. "It's a bargain."

Julie's Walk-In Closet is at 759 W Brandon Blvd. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The store is closed Sundays and Mondays.

S&K Menswear store holds close-out sale

By the end of the summer, S&K Menswear in Regency Square Brandon will likely close its doors for good.

Earlier this year, the chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. S&K Menswear had 105 stores across 26 states, according to a news release. In Florida, three stores remain. The Brandon store is the only Tampa location.

The Brandon store kicked off its going-out-of-business sale on May 21 with items up to 50 percent off. The store will remain open until it depletes its inventory, company officials said.

"Roughly these sales go on about six to 12 weeks, depending on the inventory," said Craig Venezia, who works at the Gordon Brothers Group, a global advisory, restructuring and investment firm that is handling S&K's liquidation.

S&K Menswear offers clothing for men including suits, sportswear, outerwear and accessories from brands including Kenneth Cole Reaction, Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Sean Jean.

During the close-out sale, customers can redeem outstanding S&K Menswear gift cards.

S&K Menswear Brandon is in Regency Square at 2442 W Brandon Blvd., Suite 440. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12 to 5 p.m. Sundays.

For more information, call (813) 681-7909.
