Well this is sad news. The owners of Abernathy's and Dress For Success have announce they won't be returning to their locations in downtown Davenport.

According to a QC Times article, the building that housed both businesses suffered structural damage during the recent flood.

Dress for Success, an organization known for providing dresses and preparing women for job interviews and careers, will operate out of a temporary location, at 4201 Elmore Ave.

Abernathy's will go on the road and sell merchandise at upcoming events,  in Nashville, Kansas City and elsewhere. The owner is hoping to host pop-up shops across the Quad-Cities to supplement income while searching for a new home for the store.

Both stores are searching for permanent locations.

Dress for Success will host clothing drives at several Quad-City businesses from June 17-28. The locations will be announced next month. The organization also is asking for monetary and clothing donations.

If a business would like to host a clothing drive, or if anyone is interested in donating, they may contact info@dressforsuccessqc.org.

On June 17, Armored Gardens is hosting an event to raise money for Abernathy's and Crafted Q-C. Abernathy's owners also are posting events on their Facebook page, for those interested in supporting the business.
