“As we start this holiday season, we know that many metro Detroiters already have extremely tight budgets because of mortgage rate hikes, inflation, food prices and even the financial effects of the recent strikes here in town,” said President of NCJW|MI Sallyjo Levine. “Shopping at Council Re|Sale is a joy for many of our regular customers and will be for new customers too. Our Black Friday and Small Business Saturday 50 percent off sale will help you look your best for festive occasions plus brave the coming cold months in cozy good-quality outerwear.”

During the two-day event,

customers will also be asked to help Council Re|Sale by taking part in a social media contest organized by Oakland County. Local Gems sweepstake is asking residents to take a selfie outside their favorite local store, including Council Re|Sale, for a chance of winning cash prizes. The effort is to encourage Oakland County residents to shop locally.

Council Re|Sale proceeds support the many projects of NCJW|MI, benefiting Detroit area women, children, and families in need. These include the annual Back 2 School Store, Backpack Project for homeless children, blankets for children in hospitals and foster care, Kosher meals on wheels, literacy outreach, and social justice initiatives such as voter advocacy programs.

Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday;

donations of clothing (currently not children’s clothing or books) are accepted Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information on Council Re|Sale visit or call 248.548.6664; for more information on NCJW|MI go to
