Prom Dress Rental Philippines

Prom Dress Rental Philippines, Dresses of many colors and styles, including prom, bridesmaid, mother of the groom, mother of the bride and formal dresses will soon line the right front corner of the Marietta Goodwill Retail Store at 1303 Colegate Drive.
Renea Ross, assistant manager, said the variety of dresses for Goodwill’s Formal Extravaganza, which will be held on Monday, is huge.
“There are close to 80 dresses,” she said.The dresses come in all colors and styles, ranging from white to orange, short to long, fancy or a little less so and two pieces to strapless.
The dresses of many colors were donated by a local boutique that went out of business and still have the tags on them. While many of the dresses are tagged at more than $100, shoppers won’t be paying that.
Ross said the price range of the dresses would be determined sometime today, when the dresses would actually be sorted.
“They’re brand new dresses, with price tags and everything,” she said. “They will be sold at a fraction of the (tagged) price.”
According to manager Faye Pierpoint, the dresses may be sold at $75 and up.
“Some might be cheaper than that,” she said.
While the clothing at Goodwill is donated, money from sales must cover bills and paychecks.
“A portion of our proceeds go to the (Goodwill) Training Center,” Ross said.
Kim Mossholder, administrator, workforce development and human services with the Goodwill Training Center said the services are offered to individuals with disabilities and employees.
“We offer job training and placement services to individuals with disabilities and individuals who are disadvantaged and unemployed,” she said. “We also offer services to employees who need resources; maybe one is struggling with their job. We help the employee learn new work skills to retain their employment.”
The Formal Extravaganza has some local ladies thinking about formal wear.
Bonnie Thomas, 77, of Newport, said she goes to Goodwill often and might be willing to look at some formal dresses to wear on a night out with her boyfriend.
