Pop-up Shop

Every week, we set up pop-up clothing shops that simulate a true shopping experience with tables, hanging racks, mirrors and a checkout counter.

  • No eligibility to receive clothing

  • No referral needed to receive clothing

  • Community members are entitled to select up to 5 or 10 items free of charge, depending on pop-up

  • During each pop-up shop, volunteer associates are available to assist with styling and making selections

Pop-up Experience

Our pop-up shops operate in partnership with community-based organizations throughout Philadelphia.

UPDATE: Shoppers and Volunteers - Due to ongoing concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), in accordance with guidelines and regulations set forth by the city and state, we unfortunately must cancel pop-up shops for the foreseeable future. This means there will be no pop-up shops scheduled for the rest of 2020.

If you or a client of yours is in urgent need of clothing, we have an emergency clothing program for which you or the client may qualify. Please contact us at JFCS' Care Navigation line, 866-532-7669, if you are seeking emergency services.

Please stay tuned to this website and our social media channels (@ourclosetpa) for further updates. We'll continue to monitor the situation as we decide when we are able to re-open pop-up shops. This decision is being made for the health and wellness of our community. Thank you.
