I attended the first grand opening of Fed by Threads (located at 435 E. 9th Street just east of 4th Avenue) in Nov. 2012. They are now moving their store downtown to 350 E. Congress to the ground floor of that newish parking garage across from The Cadence apts. And they’re having another big party/grand opening on Saturday May 17, 12 noon to 6 p.m. to celebrate:
We are building the clothing store we ourselves have never walked into! If you think feeding food-insecure Americans is important, supporting fair-wage manufacturing jobs for Americans, reducing our carbon footprint, and/or supporting positive body image especially for women and girls but guys too, then come for Fed By Threads Flagship Store Grand Opening on the famous Congress Street near Hotel Congress and Gio Taco! We feed 12 emergency meals via Food Banks like Community Food Bank per item we design and sell! We just crossed 137,928 emergency meals fed to food insecure Americans! We are going to (have) snacks, drinks, some live music, and a fabulous time. Bring a friend or two!
More info about this unique clothing store at their website: http://fedbythreads.com/. “For every piece of clothing sold, Fed By Threads feeds 12 hungry people. Four meals are provided locally through the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and eight come from Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks based out of Chicago”.
Don’t miss this grand re-opening party.
