RON SWARNER: BRAND NEW LOOK >>>
Owner Julie Bennett and crew moved their hip fashion thrift store next door to their old space and re-opened the urbanXchange as the same bargain clothing and accessory store, except now it's bigger and looks like it could sit in the meat-packing neighborhood in New York City.
The sleek, open concept store doesn't scream "thrift!" anymore.
In the coming months a record store and coffee shop will be added in the unfinished space behind the store.
An official grand reopening will be held Saturday, Oct. 4, noon to 9 p.m., offering new stock items, a raffle for a new Beautiful Angle poster, models, makeup artists, DJs and a live 7 p.m. show from Anomie Belle and the Next Door Neighbors.
