What is the Famous Wheeler Clothing & More Sale?

This ever-popular and much-anticipated East Side event has been benefiting the New England community and supporting education for 73 years.  Wheeler’s Clothing & More Sale transforms the Madden gym into a 2-day, pop-up retail store with gently-worn and brand new clothing for men, women, and children, plus sporting goods, books and household items, in the Housewares department, and designer wear in our famous Boutique section.
Net proceeds support financial aid for Wheeler students as well as Breakthrough Providence, a program for low-income, academically-motivated middle school students in the Providence public schools.

  • Clothing and accessories for men, women, and children for all seasons (no swimwear, pajamas, or undergarments)
  • Boutique and finer clothing for men, women, and children
  • T-shirts (give us your best ones only – not the ones you get with all sorts of advertising logos!)
  • Accessories:  belts, hats, scarves, bags, ties, etc.
  • Sporting goods (such as bikes, lacrosse sticks, ice skates, etc.)
  • Household items, decorative items, smaller furniture
  • Small appliances (please make sure they work)
  • Books
  • Footwear:  preferably new or rarely worn.  We can’t sell shoes that are down-at-the-heel or in need of repair.

Alice & Olivia,  Armani, Bloomingdales, Bruno Cucinelli, Calvin Klein, Free People, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Hermes, Jil Sander, Kate Spade, Kors, Marc Jacobs, Milly, Missoni, Nanette Lepore, Neiman Marcus, Prada, Theory, Tory Burch, 7 For All Mankind and many more….

Technology becomes obsolete so quickly, we don’t know if they actually work, and they take up lots of space.  We do not have a way to dispose of these items.  Often Wheeler will hold an E-waste drive during Earth Week and publicize it in advance to parents through the parent email newsletter.

Toys and Stuffed Animals
Many toys typically have multiple pieces so it is very labor-intensive to make sure everything stays together.  Stuffed animals, new or otherwise, may harbor germs and may be unhygienic.

Local charities sign-up to shop at the end of sale and take for free what is needed for their organization.  Any remaining items go to local charities, such as Salvation Army, Big Sisters, Rhode Island Donation Exchange, etc.


PARTICIPATE IN ANY WAY!  Our goal is for 100% participation in the Wheeler community.  Please spread the word about the clothing sale, donate items, help during a Donation Drop Off Day, volunteer during set-up week, work the sale, and shop (of course!).
