Berkley’s Council Re|Sale, one of the oldest resale stores in metro Detroit, is holding a special 75 percent off Summer Super Sale on Aug. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The store, located at 3297 W. 12 Mile Road, is known for featuring high-end clothing, including designer wear, professional attire, shoes, evening wear, home décor, and other treasures — all generously donated by the local community.
At the Summer Super Sale, 75 % off normal prices will be storewide. Popular summer clothes such as shorts will be just $1.25 instead of $5; short dresses will be just $3 and long dresses will be $3.75; sandals will be $2 and flat shoes will be $2.50.
High-end brands in stock
Designer and high-end brands currently in the store include Tory Burch, Akris, Ralph Lauren, Donna Karan and Kasper.
An Akris jacket will be selling for $12.50 instead of the regular $50 (retail $400 up to $2,000 and more) and a Donna Karan suit will be $15 instead of $60.
Bridal gowns are also available as well as stunning home décor, including original artwork, glassware, and crystal.
A Lennox 80-piece tableware set will be selling for $67.50 instead of the regular $250, a Lennox cake plate for $7.50, a Limoge candlestick for $6.25, and a complete silver-plated silverware set for $50.
A great cause
Proceeds from the store support the many projects of National Council of Jewish Women, Michigan (NCJW|MI), a nonprofit organization benefiting Detroit area women, children, and families in need.
“We decided to hold the Summer Super Sale to give metro Detroiters struggling with inflation and high food prices a chance to refresh their summer wardrobes at bargain prices that most people can afford,” explained President of NCJW|MI Sallyjo Levine.
“With the dog days of summer fast approaching, we wanted to give our many regular customers — and hopefully some new ones — the chance to look their best in the hot weather. And with our beautiful home décor on sale, there’s an opportunity to give your home an update too.”
Detroit-area fixture since 1930s
