New Jersey is offering its residents free clothing for the first time in years, and it’s getting it in a way that’s less expensive than other New Jersey retailers.
On Monday, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, Home Depot, and Target announced that they would begin offering the free clothing at their stores, which are located in Jersey City, Bergen County, and Ocean City.
The stores offer up to $150 in free clothing a month for residents of all ages.
This is the first major apparel company to offer this benefit, which the companies say will help offset the costs of maintaining and operating their stores.
“We’re making the commitment to provide a safe, affordable and effective way for our customers to get their clothes for less,” said Macy’s Senior Vice President of Retail Sales Mark Tewksbury in a statement.
“We are making Jersey City a destination for the New Jersey and American middle class.”
Macy’s and Kohl`s are the first New Jersey companies to offer free clothing to residents of the Garden State.
Macy’s is the third major retailer to offer the program, which was first implemented in New York City and Philadelphia.
Other retailers in the program include Walgreens, Amazon, and Walmart.
