When I first heard about The Dress Closet, I thought, "What a great idea!" I followed along on Facebook and told all my friends about it . When Marlena announced she was closing, I just couldn't let go of the thought that something great was being lost. So I drove up one day, walked in, and asked if she would be interested in selling. She responded, "I have been hoping someone would come in and ask just that."
Over the next few weeks, I transported all the lovely dresses to my house, where the took over the living room, and eventually the library for the summer. I spent the summer of 2019 searching for a perfect store front, and was thrilled when York Way Place became available, as it is my favorite spot in Jenkintown. I hope you will come see us there and find your perfect dress for all your special occasions!
Marlena's Story: In my household with myself and three teen daughters, we are always in need of a dress for one event or another. We've gotten into the habit of putting all of our dressy dresses together in a closet in the spare room where we can browse all of our choices in once place. This has come to be known as The Dress Closet.
I got to thinking - wouldn't it be great if there were a communal Dress Closet where all of those worn once formal dresses hanging in closets could come together in one location accessible to everyone?
Thus, The Dress Closet was born! Welcome to the New Way to Shop for Lightly Worn Dress, Formal & Prom Dresses.
