Rack City is a student run thrift shop that strives to combine equity, economy and the environment. We promote secondhand clothing because it avoids unethical practices from fast fashion and cheap clothing. We provide affordable clothing options for all community members. We encourage people to donate, repair, and reuse their items to divert waste from the landfill. All proceeds stay in the community. Income from sales cycle back into the Sustainability Innovation and Engagement Fund which grants money to students working on campus sustainability projects. 

This will be our first ever pop-up shop in the Student Union since winter is approaching and the Student Farmer's Market (where we have operated at up until this point in time) is holding the last event of the season on 11/17.
