Kids EveryWear Consignment Sale will open its doors to the general public on Sept. 16, but it's opening them earlier for evacuees from Florida and Texas, who may be in the Triangle because of hurricanes Irma and Harvey.

On the sale's Facebook page, a post from Saturday says: "We have made the decision to allow Florida & Texas evacuees to shop anytime from here on out. Today [Sept. 9] till 8pm, Sunday 1pm-6pm, Monday 10am-9pm. Drivers license required. Please share this on your wall and pray for those in the path and those who help."

Update: The sale also added Georgia evacuees to the list of those who can shop early.

The sale is at the Morrisville Outlet Mall, 1001 Airport Blvd., Morrisville.

Before it opens to the public, the sale always opens early for sale volunteers, consignors and others, who meet certain criteria. Now, those early shoppers can include evacuees from Texas and Florida. The sale, which is open twice a year, features gently used clothing, toy and other gear for kids.

    Nick, Just wanted to point out that this is a consignment sale which means that Kids Everywear does not own the property that you so blithely want them to give away. Hundreds of families participate in this sale and they receive the proceeds from the sales. It's not a retailer that owns the merchandise.

    Oh, how generous of them. Such humanitarianism. 🙄 We're going to open our doors early in hopes storm victims will buy stuff from us. People who likely lost most of their possessions and probably have limited resources. Here's an idea, stop being so greedy and donate to them.
