HORSEHEADS - Pookies Little Britches, a local clothing consignment store, has relocated from its former location at the former Ames building on Victory Highway in Painted Post to the Arnot Mall in Horseheads, near the Mooney's and Ruby Tuesday’s mall locations.
The former store closed in late January and the new location opened on Jan. 26. The 12,000-square-foot new location features all types of clothing for men, women and children, from normal everyday clothing to specialty items like scrubs, toys, books, household items and more.
The new location does not offer furniture.
Owner Valerie Rook said the 60,000-square-foot former location on Victory Highway had a liability issue with the roof, which required her to relocate.
Rook said she and her employees are still working on moving inventory into the new store from storage. But the location itself is coming along.
“The store looks really nice,” she said.
Pookies Little Britches has been in business for 16 years and has had several locations as the business grew larger and more inventory space was needed.
Rook said there are 3,955 consigner accounts open with the store. Once an item of clothing sells, for clothes up to $6.99 a consigner will receive $1 if the clothing is worn, and $1.50 is it’s new with tags. The consigner receives 35 percent if it’s $7.99 and up.
