If a new baby is in your future or there are children ready to go to school and funds are tight, try Rascals at 5 East Oneida.
Rascals is a clothing store that specializes in gently worn children’s apparel. It is similar to a growing number of stores in the intermountain area.
Fashioned after the ones Christa Pitcher has seen in the Boise area, two local businesswomen said they thought it could work here .
Co-owners Pitcher and Vickie Wanner decided with all of the children in Franklin County a place like Rascals could be successful and add to the economic viability of Preston.
The store is packed wall-to-wall with gently worn children’s clothes.
Most of the fabric, clothing and other items looks like it just came off the racks of a major department store.
“We have some name brand clothes and we have items for people who aren’t concerned about the name brands,” said Pitcher.
Pitcher said she raised five children and her baby clothes always ended up being thrown away or given to a second hand store.
“Why not make a little money with the out grown baby clothes?” she asked.
Rascals also is collecting cribs, dressers, high chairs and strollers, as well as apparel for pre-teens to sell.
They try to ensure the clothing is clean and in good repair before it goes out on the floor.
“It’s been fun,” said Wanner, “so far the community has embraced us; we are pretty excited.”
