Cell One employees spent the past two weeks clearing, painting and designing a new thrift boutique called Dress for Success. The boutique headed by the Centre Against Abuse will help vicitims of domestic violence who have left home with just the clothes on their backs, it will also help garner additional finances and awareness for the centre.

 

Looking for a designer wardrobe without the over the top price tag?

The Centre Against Abuse has recently partnered with Cell One to open a thrift boutique with the aim of providing people with just that.  Dress for Success on Old Military Road, St George’s, is hoping to offer high quality work attire and formal wear at low prices. The thrift boutique will open its doors for the first time on Saturday.  The centre is also planning to use the chic new space to advance its mission of educating and raising public awareness of its programmes.
