Kellie’s Consignment Debuts New Location
Local consignment retailer, Kellie’s Consignments, has opened up a new location, just minutes from their original location, at 5000 Marsh Rd. in Okemos. The new store front ushers in new opportunity for owner, Kellie Johnson, as it will allow her to expand her store’s inventory of larger furniture and decorative items.
Friday’s grand opening event unveiled and highlighted what to expect from Kellie’s Consignments in their new lavish space. If you’ve visited Kellie’s at their former location, you will be shocked at just how massive the expansion is, with their new retail space more than doubling that of the original. While the store is gracious in retail space, the venture looks to open the new building’s second floor as an additional showroom.
The grand opening featured a variety of activities to engage visitors and area partners, including a ribbon cutting ceremony, keynote speakers from the Kellie’s team, food & beverage and even a fashion show; highlighting local businesses and designs from The Bra Lady, It Works and Light RX.
In addition to the festivities on hand, guests were also greeted with the opportunity to receive “Kellie’s Kash,” redeemable instore credit, from a grab bag opportunity. In addition to giving away nearly $1000 in Kellie’s Kash, the retailer also offered the first 100 people in the doors received unique prizes.
The expansion signifies progress for Johnson, who was the recipient of Greater Lansing Business Magazine’s 2016 Entrepreneurial Spirit Award; an accolade that acknowledges the success of unique entrepreneurs who possess the spirit and risk-taking tenacity that’s often admired in entrepreneurial business.
Kellie’s Consignments seeks to be a beneficial opportunity for the public to earn extra money for their lightly used clothing, jewelry, decor and furniture. The retailer is known for their abilities to “recycle, up-cycle, upscale, and downsize.” The money earned and spent at Kellie’s Consignments goes right back into our community. Last year Kellie’s put nearly $400,000 back into surrounding households.
