Granby Consignment Store adapts to economy

When Susie Veatch noticed the economy was slowing down her family business, she decided to take a chance and open a store that would offer something different to the community.

On March 28, Veatch opened The Consignment Store in the Pine Cone Plaza Shopping Center.

“We want people to have the opportunity to come and get some great stuff,” Veatch said, “and also find a way to make a few dollars in this economy.”

Veatch said the store takes all types and sizes of clothing, as well as household items.

“We take everything besides TVs, computers and things like that,” Veatch said.

Veatch said there seems to be a big money turnaround with furniture, but said she also sells clothes more than anything.

She wants people to know the store not only accepts clothing, but washes and irons all clothing as well.

“Everything is clean before it is put on the racks,” Veatch said. “Someone could come in here before they have a function to go to, and just put on the piece of clothing and go.”

Veatch’s husband, Dick, helps at the store when he can by working on furniture that needs some shaping up. His work includes staining and wiping down worn furniture.

Or as Veatch said, “a little TLC before it goes out on the floor.”

Veatch explained the store closes its books at the end of each month, and then send a check out by the seventh of the following month to the customers brought in sale items.

She said customers get 50 percent of what each item sells for.

“We have been very busy, Veatch said, “and have been accepted very well by the community.”
