We are heading into May with our warm Sunny Weather here in San Diego.. It's officially time for Flip flops and tank tops.. Even though it feels like we have skipped over Winter this year.. If you haven't gotten around to Summer shopping support your Local family business and start with us.. 

I hope you all enjoyed your Spring break with the kids off of school.. I have three teenagers now who kept me crazy busy with all the places and activities they had planned.. My oldest son (16) was a counselor at Indian Hills camp with the refugee kids from City heights all week.. He was in charge of 5 precious little boys who he was very blessed to share the week with.. I was thrilled that he had the opportunity to do this.. They always say take every opportunity to enjoy fun days, vacations and actitives with the kids because the grow up so fast.. That is the Truth.. My Son volunteers as a counselor at Indian Hills all Summer long and now on Spring break which has changed our Family Vacations and time for sure.. We miss him with us but are thrilled he is doing what he has been called to do.. Soooo.. Enjoy the younger years with your kids. Potty Training, Sleepless nights, Endless breast feeding, Messy toys all over the house.. I do Promise they grow up so fast and you will miss those times. If you haven't had a chance to check Indian Hills camp out you should do so.. It's a great place for camps, field trips, family camping or even just spending the day..

Didn't Summer just start? I know my kids have only been out a few weeks but they are managing to count down every day til they have to go Back To School. I keep telling them to enjoy the Back Yard Sleepovers and Beach Days and we will count down the last week. Why dread it already right? 

Back To School Season officially begins in our store on July 5th.. We start to Buy Back To School clothes and Our Customers start to Buy Handfuls at a time preparing for the next season ahead. I have had lots of people filling up stamp cards in one purchase over the last week. That is exciting because that means they are getting fabulous items for a fraction of the cost new.. If you have been a long time customer of ours you know what a Resource we are for our families this time of year. One of the best parts is we will still have a great variety of SUMMER clothes through September on our racks but also stock them with Fall clothing. 

If you need hoodies and jeans or skirts and tank tops we will have it all. The retail stores will just have the winter and Fall items this time of year. 

On the same note this is a great time to clean out and bring items in.. For what reason now? We buy both Summer And Fall during our Back To School Season. Watch our Facebook Page for our Buying times and days.

Its that time of year again.. The hustle and bustle of the last few weeks of school and then BAM the kids are home and looking for stuff to do.. 

Some of my favorite summer activities are hitting up the museums in Balboa Park ( southern california residents go free to certain museums every Tuesday). I print up the schedule and stick it to the fridge.. 

Free Movies in the Regal Kids program~ Tuesdays and Wednesdays the 10:00 movie is free.  The schedule is also up early on Regals website so look into that program. 

The library tends to have some activites with craft days, story times, and magic shows so check your local library too. 

We also sell all our books buy 2 get the 3rd free so keep those kids reading this summer. 

This time of the year we start to think of BACK TO SCHOOL clothes.. It's crazy how fast the SUMMER clothes are out of the stores when it is still hot here through October. We keep Summer clothes all through September and add Warm and School clothes in with our selection. It is usually 90 degrees when my kids go back in August so I know what New Seasonal clothes we need for school.. SUMMER. Take advantage of our Sales, Clearance rack and Coupon Days this Summer.

We are in Need of cars and trucks.. They sell so fast in the store. Either that or they drive away at night when we are closed.. Lol. If you have any to bring in we would love to buy them from you..

Do your kids still play with those play structures and swings in the back yard? Is the sandbox just sitting?This is the time of year we really need outside play toys.. 



Start thinking of gathering your kids School clothes and unloading them to us. It will be here real quick when we start begging for them. The season is around the corner. 

If you need any 4th of July attire, a dress for a wedding, Graduation shirt or dress, A Hawaiin Shirt for that Luau, that awesome bathing suit for your upcoming vacation remember to check with us first.. Save some bucks and get more for your money shopping resale.

 The New Year brings New ideas, Positive changes and New Energy. I am so thrilled with all our wonderful additions and fun changes for 2012.. I want to make sure we have just as many in 2013.. 

Our Facebook Page has been a very positive addition to the store for 2012. It allows customers to see new merchandise, what our buying schedule is and we advertise deals and sales on it whenever we have something going on. If you have not joined our page yet I recommend you do soon. We have some fun stuff coming for you. Coming Very quickly.

Our buying days are almost always staffed with 3 buyers and I have heard we have the shortest wait in town because of that.. So keep that in mind as you are trying to resell your items.. Cory's Closet has got the process down packed after 19 years:~)

Our Spring Clothing is hitting the floor.. We will continue to have a Fabulous Selection of warm clothes to get you through the next few months. This is always a great time to sell to us because we buy both seasons. It is also a good time to get a jump start on your Spring Wardrobe.
