As a mother, Jackie Dowd knows how expensive it can be to outfit young people, especially when they get to the age when popular brand-name clothing is the thing to have.
With that in mind, Dowd is in the process of opening Teen Scene Consignments in the former Max Pizza Place on Route 44 in Canton.
While there are consignment stores in town, Dowd feels she will have enough of a niche in the immediate area for a store to cater to the young and “young at heart.”
She said the store will specialize in name-brand clothing, jewelry and accessories.
The store will be similar to Teenage Wasteland in Simsbury, Dowd said, and she hopes the two can complement each other.
Dowd hopes to begin buying clothing this week and is targeting Dec. 18 as an opening date.
“I’m excited about it,” Dowd said. “It’s a good area.”
