I spent a fun morning at Bring ‘n Buy. I went through each rack and had a blast doing it—incredible selections at very reasonable prices for such high-quality clothing. Every single piece of clothing was in pristine condition. All the high-end names everyone loves and wants right now are in the store plus the traditional brands as well. They carry everything from fast fashion to the classic pieces that every wardrobe needs. Her accessory collection is amazing and her handbag selection is one of the best that I have seen. Great shoe selection too.
The pictures will give you an idea of how well-stocked the store is. Check out the @bringnbuy Instagram page for a closer look at some of the great inventory in stock.
Bring ‘n Buy has been in business for 48 years. Tina Hassenstein, the owner, has been there for 29 years; before that was her mom. You can tell that Tina is well-loved by the community by the number of people that come in, some just stopping by to say hello. Tina loves what she does and would not want to do anything else. She is friends with many customers and loves seeing them outside the store. The outpouring of love that the customers showed Tina after her mom passed away stays with Tina every day.
I asked Tina about business during the pandemic, and she said that she was able to do personal shopping, delivery, and pick-up for her customers. Since the pandemic, Bring ‘n Buy has had many new customers as former New York City residents relocated to Ridgefield and surrounding areas. The store is busier than ever. According to Tina, the hottest item during the pandemic and now is designer bags and the demand does not seem to be waning.
Tina gives back to the community by donating all unsold items at the end of August to local charities. Well done, Tina!
Bring ‘n Buy also has personal shopping and closet clean-outs available. Call for information regarding consignment.
I highly recommend Bring ‘n Buy, it really is one of Connecticut’s best.
