Myra Miller, the founder of Velour Clothing Exchange, welcomes everyone and is always willing to help individuals shop and select items.

Velour is organized gender neutrally, so items are separated by the clothing article, not by who can wear them.

Shopping local is a great way to help smaller businesses grow within our community. Giving gently worn clothes a new life is also a way to help the environment in terms of recycling and repurposing. Velour Clothing Exchange emphasizes this, therefore prides itself on being a local business that gives clothes a second chance.
