RC Uniform pop up shop at Ed White High School - Wednesday, July 14th from 2pm-6pm & Thursday, July 15th from 10am-2pm. Just as a reminder, they have their annual June sale (10% off) going on now through June 30th. This is your only sale for the summer, and it's in store and online. There will be no discounts at the popup shop (besides the packages which are already discounted) but it will be an opportunity to save on shipping or driving to our store. I am attaching the new uniform pricing sheet and information about the pop-up shop.
Have a happy and safe summer,
