The Closet Chick, Susan Weaver, remembered to host a grand opening after a year.
Closet Chick hits 1-year milestone
In one of those "duh" moments, Susan Reaver, owner of the Closet Chick, realized she opened the resale boutique a year ago without ever having marked the occasion with a grand opening.
Well, better late than never. She'll be doubling up with a first anniversary and grand opening sale 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today through Sunday, with everything priced at 50 percent off.
The boutique, at 2013 S. King St., specializes in gently used contemporary clothing. Call 942-CHIC (2442) for more information.

Mind does matter on NAMI walkathon
More than 500 people are signed up for Saturday's "NAMI Hawaii Walks for the Mind of Hawaii," but more are invited to participate in this benefit for the National Alliance for Mental Illness.
The four-mile walk begins at 8 a.m. at Honolulu Hale and will proceed along Alapai Street, down Beretania, Richards and King streets, and back to Honolulu Hale. The Royal Hawaiian Band and Karen Keawehawaii will be among performers helping to kick things off.
NAMI Walks will take place in 70 communities nationwide this year. Honolulu organizers hope to raise $50,000 in this first local walk.
Proceeds go toward support programs, education, advocacy and the encouragement of research involving mental illness.
