Lisa Smith and James Locke, of Boothbay, assumed ownership of Kidz Closet in Damariscotta on March 1.

The consignment store features gently used clothing for children. They also accept strollers, baby accessories and some toys. All consignments are accepted pending approval. "We want to be sure to keep the quality up as it has always been in the past, " said Smith.

Former owner Angie Achorn was there to help on their first day. "I'm happy to see a family so dedicated to helping their neighbors take over the store," she said.

The new owners know a bit about how costly dressing children can be. They have five children ranging in age from 14 to twins who are 22 months old.

"We have started a helping hand bin," said Smith. "People can donate or take out things like diapers, formula and coupons. The bin will not be policed and all are welcome to use it. It's one way we can all help each other."

Smith and Locke will honor all previous store credits and will be keeping current policies in place. Consignment items are for store credit only. "Angie did a great job," said Smith. "Some things may change in the future but we are happy with things right now."

Kidz Closet is located at 127 Elm St., in Damariscotta.
