Over fifty years ago, a group of church women in the community learned of children without shoes and families in need. Together they worked through their churches and opened The Princeton Closet resale store. Their hope was to provide quality used clothing and other items for these children and their families and also to disperse the funds they raised to worthy community organizations. The Princeton Closet first rented space on North Main street, then moved to South Main street, and several decades later the former Sears building on North Main Street became its current home. Many thanks go to those forward thinking women who took a leap of faith with prayerful consideration to purchase the building. Today The Princeton Closet is thriving with wonderful space for retail and terrific neighbors. The Princeton Closet is a not for profit 501(c)3 business that is 100 percent focused on giving back to the community we love and serve. We conduct business independently and are guided and maintained by a Board of Directors. All of our proceeds go back to the community through our Lending A Hand program that funds not for profit organizations in Bureau County. We also provide scholarships through the Shirley and Dale Espel Memorial Scholarship Program to deserving high school graduates in our community. As a result of the incredible donations from our community, we operate an upscale resale store that generates the revenue to Give Back! Thank you everyone!
