Raleigh boutique offers discount to those who help animal rescue

ABC11 Together highlights the strength of the human spirit, good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help
RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- A local retailer still trying to recover from the pandemic is making generosity part of its Carolina Comeback.

Galatea, a women's clothing boutique in Raleigh's Seaboard Station, is offering a discount to customers who donate to the animal rescue Pawfect Match.

Cheryl Fraser said, even though revenue and traffic are still down at her store which had to close for a couple of months during the pandemic, she saw the nonprofit was in need of pet supplies and didn't hesitate to leverage her business to help.

"I don't know how else to really be an active member of the community and it's just really important to me," Fraser said. "My customers have really supported us- our core group so much during all of this and we are kind of on the same page about animal right and supporting animals and the local community. I feel like we have to do it."

From June 23-July 3, customers who drop off one pet supply item at the store will get 25 percent off one full-priced clothing item of their choice.

"It's an excuse to come to a great place to shop," said longtime customer Joan Troy who scored the discount after dropping off her donated items.
