A.J. Wright, a leading clothing store that offers quality, well-known brands at great prices, is West Philadelphia's newest resident. Beginning Sunday, May 18, 2008, A.J. Wright will open its doors in the Park West Shopping Center, located at 1575 N. 52nd St., Philadelphia, Pa., 19131.

A.J. Wright offers significant values on family apparel and footwear, accessories, home fashions, giftware, including toys and games, and special, opportunistic purchases. Customers benefit from prices that are up to 70 percent off department and specialty store name brand prices.

"We're excited to open an A.J. Wright in the West Philadelphia community," said Kathy Clair, A.J. Wright manager of marketing.

"We're encouraging residents to come see the store on Sunday and start finding their own real deals. Our merchandise mix changes weekly, so customers always have a fresh selection of stylish, affordable clothing."

Customers can also join to be in on exclusive promotions and events before anyone else. A.J. Wright store hours are Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

A.J. Wright festivities kick-off Friday, May 16, 2008, at 11 a.m. with a special, invitation-only presentation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.

A representative from the Boys & Girls Club, as well as local dignitaries, will be present at the new store as A.J. Wright representatives make a donation to the organization.

"On behalf of the volunteers, staff, and, most importantly, the 15,000 kids we serve each year throughout the city of Philadelphia, we ask the employees of A.J.

Wright to accept our thanks and gratitude for their generous donation to support our mission and our important work," said Al Mollica, chief development officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia.

On Sunday, May 18, 2008, following the store ribbon cutting with A.J. Wright officials and local dignitaries, there will be a variety of perks available for West Philadelphia residents. A.J. Wright will hold an open casting call for aspiring fashion models.

Customers can stop by the fashion photo shoot at the store to audition. The winner will be featured as a model in an A.J. Wright advertisement, and will receive $250 and the clothes they modeled. Furthermore, the first 100 store visitors will be awarded $20 gift cards.
