'Try Rae's First' Celebrating 30 Years On Court Street

Rae's circa 1986
With neighborhood stores opening and closing at an alarming rate lately in Carroll Gardens, it is worth celebrating those businesses that continue to thrive. 'Try Rae's First', a beloved neighborhood clothing store, has been in business at 430 Court Street since 1986 and will be celebrating its 30th anniversary this week-end.
Help Rae's celebrate by stopping by for a drink and to take advantage of 75% of fall merchandize in the store.

Owner Raina Passo writes:
Fashions come and go and neighborhoods change but the one thing that I have strived to remain the same is good old fashion customer service.

It has been my great pleasure to be a community staple for the past 30 years, happily servicing my customers. I have been blessed with friendships that have spanned generations of families. It is your loyalty and support of small business that makes this neighborhood great.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to many more years of being a part of this great Brooklyn neighborhood.

Congratulations, Raina! Glad to know that some stores thrive and continue to be part of the community.

Recently got a sweater from her, my first time visiting the store last week as I am a relative newcomer to the neighborhood. I could immediately tell that she was a long time local. Such a nice experience!

I have been shopping at Rae's for the past 26 years. Although I do not live in the neighborhood, I travel because this store is a gem. Raina is a treasure to the neighborhood. Her eye for fashion is unsurpassed and there is always a great selection for both myself and my family. Great stores endure and it is this woman's smile and enthusiasm that makes Brooklyn great!

As an avid shopper, and a firm believer in shopping small...I have remained impressed with Try Rae's First. Not only does she stay consistent with today's hottest trends & styles, her products remain different from that of the "corporate" experience. I can confidentially say that every piece I own, is Brooklyn's best AND beyond! Cheers to 30 years and counting,

A long time fan of the store, Raina is always on top of what's happening and looking to get it in stock. The best customer service and at a great price.
