This spring, JLNO’s Board of Directors voted to accept an offer to purchase Freret Street properties that currently house Bloomin’ Deals. As we finalize the plans for our future Bloomin’ Deals operations and location, we are continuing to offer new and gently used merchandise through the summer. We are, however, no longer accepting donations at our Freret Street location. We are excited about the opportunity to continue the Bloomin’ Deals legacy with increased community impact and will continue sharing information on sales and operations via our social media accounts.
Every Purchase Helps Others
JLNO’s Thrift Shop – called Bloomin’ Deals since the early 1990s – has always been about the community and at the heart of JLNO members. The operation of a thrift shop as a permanent Junior League of New Orleans fundraiser dates back to 1927 when it first opened Royal Street. Its persistence over nine decades is a testament to our members’ leadership, diligence, and commitment to helping others. Members volunteer approximately 6,100 hours per year to assist with staffing the store. The store stocks a large selection of new and gently-used adult and children’s clothing and shoes, housewares, and seasonal items.
