Traders Apparel will hold a grand opening for their new store in Morgan on Saturday, April 13, 2013, at 12 pm. The store is located at 117 North Commercial Street.
“Traders Apparel is a valuable addition to Commercial Street that will help draw more shoppers and businesses to Commercial Street,” said Albert Wilde, Morgan Area Chamber of Commerce President.
In addition to a storefront presence, Traders Apparel operates an e-commerce site to buy and sell clothing online. “Traders Apparel offers a unique ‘cash for clothes’ system that is accessed and managed online by customers across the country,” says owner Shane Rappleye.
“Our customers outside the local area utilize our online mailing label request forms and ship us their items for sale. We aren’t a consignment store, so customers don’t wait for their items to sell in order to get paid.”
The retailer currently employees seven team members, with plans to expand personnel as business increases.
Traders Apparel thanks Morgan City Mayor Jim Egbert and the Morgan City Council for helping to secure the Commercial Street property. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” said Rappleye.
Hours of operation are Monday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. For more information, contact Traders Apparel at (801) 829-4440 or visit their website at www.tradersapparel.com. You can also “like” them on Facebook for special deals and offers.
