College campuses team up with JC Penney for Suit Up event

Local News

College students are suiting up for their futures at the Millcreek Mall.

All four college campuses in Erie County taking part in the first annual Suit Up event. The event allows college students to use a 40 percent discount on top of clearance prices for professional attire for interviews, internships or current jobs.

Organizer Christina Moreschi says “people don’t realize how much of a burden buying professional clothing can be. How expensive that can be for students that may not have a lot of income right now and a lot of ability to purchase those items.”

The hope is for this event to be held either each semester or once a year.
