An outlet store, featuring a wide array of merchandise, will hold its official opening on Friday, Aug. 9.

Full Circle Outlet, on Victoria Road North, will provide an ever-changing variety of merchandise.

Jessica Nemeth, president of the Okanagan Community Development Society which operates Full Circle Outlet, said the store will feature affordable clothing and home fashions.

Brand names include Orb, Flojos, Buffalo, Costa Blanca, Purple Martin, Calvin Klein and Nike.

She added that new items of all sorts will be featured on the store shelves often.

“Our product supply will forever be growing and changing,” she said. “We really want people to be accepting of a little bit of change.”

When the store opens, it will have a huge assortment of clothing from the HBC warehouse.

In addition, some clothing from the Smallville television show will be sold.

Nemeth said the society’s board had a connection with the television show, The Liquidator, and was thus able to acquire the lot from the set of Smallville.

She added that the board will continue to look for sources and suppliers.

“We want to make as many connections as we possibly can,” she said.

Money raised through the store will go back to the community in order to help local initiatives.

While the store replaces the void left by the closing of Penny Lane Bargain Outlet earlier this year, Nemeth said Full Circle Outlet is not a duplicate of Penny Lane.

Full Circle Outlet received assistance from Community Futures and Summerland Credit Union with $85,000 in loans to set up the new store.

Members of the Okanagan Community Development Society board include vice-president Jeff Kruck, secretary Kristi Leardo, treasurer Paula Cower and Joh Ryland.
