Financial problems close charity store

A store that provides used formal dresses to high school students, primarily for prom, is closing.

Katie's Project
Project Coordinator Sarah George sent out an email Wednesday saying because of financial circumstances, the Market Common store called Katie's Closet is closing.

Katie's Project will hold one boutique on Saturday, January 21 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the store. Applications have to be completed online in advance.

Teachers who would like to keep dresses for future needs are encouraged to attend.

Katie's Project hopes to open a new store, but it doesn't know how long the process will take.
