Uptown Shop Opens

The Amarillo Downtown Women's Center celebrated the grand opening of its newest retail store, the Uptown Shop in Wolflin Square today.

The center's other two thrift stores, but Uptown Shop will carry more up scale merchandise, which previously owned or donated by other department stores.

DWC DIrector Diann Gilmore says, "We're going to have our antiques and furs and crystal and new clothes and items like that in this store. We believe we can get a little more in a different location and in a different type of store than in out thrift stores."

Refreshments were provided and one lucky person even walked away with a Barnes jewelry designer ring worth just over two thousand dollars...

Proceeds from all three stores benefits the daily operational expenses of the DWC's two homeless shelters, Haven house and Abba house.
