Peebles in clothing drive

HOUSTON, Texas — Stage Stores, a national department store retailer, launched its Community Counts Clothing Drive, July 7.

Customers are invited to make donations of new or gently used clothing through July 21 at any one of the company’s family of stores, which include Stage, Bealls, Goody’s, Palais Royal and Peebles.

“Stage Stores was established with an emphasis on community involvement and giving back to the local areas it serves,” said Michael Glazer, president and CEO of Stage Stores. “That spirit of giving continues today, and is ingrained in our core values.”

Each store has formed a local partnership with an organization that provides the donated clothing to families in need. Clothing donated at the Sidney Peebles store will be given to Agape Distribution.

As a special thank you, Stage Stores will give participating customers a Community Counts Savings Coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase on regular, sale and clearance items.

“Our customers are our neighbors and friends,” said Russ Lundy, executive vice president and chief stores officer of Stage Stores, “and together we can help make a difference in our communities.”
