Clothes and Go Selected as The Next Big Thing Winner
Dallas Market Center announces its national product search contest winner

DALLAS – June 28, 2010 – Dallas Market Center, the world’s most complete wholesale
marketplace, recently announced The Next Big Thing winner, Clothes and Go. The Next Big Thing is a national search for the best new products from throughout the country.
The winner was announced during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market on Saturday, June 26, and awarded a prize package worth more than $15,000 including $5,000 cash, exhibit space at the January 2011 Total Home & Gift Market, a feature profile in one of Dallas Market Center’s award-winning publications, and consultations from leading industry experts regarding branding, public relations, visual merchandising and much more.

“Clothes and Go is a great product that fulfills a compelling consumer need,” said Bill Winsor, president and CEO, Dallas Market Center. “We are thrilled to introduce them to the marketplace and to work with them over the next several months as they build a successful business.”

Clothes and Go was selected from three contest finalists including Sand Gone and Sutton Baking Cups. The finalists received airfare, hotel and exhibit space to show their products during Market in front of more than 50,000 attendees.

Clothes and Go, based in Dallas, Texas, is a unique solution for moving clothing on hangers. Clothes are removed from the closet on hangers, placed in the Clothes and Go bag and then easily carried and put in a vehicle. It eliminates the need for traditional moving boxes and hanging rods while taking a fraction of the time to move. Clothes and Go is made of durable, lightweight, water resistant material that includes ties to attach hangers, Velcro to secure the items, and handles to carry the bag over the shoulder.

Myra Prescott and Julie Tobolowsky, founders of Clothes and Go, are best friends and sisters-in-law. Between the two of them, they have moved several children back and forth to college as well as moved their families from home to home. They dreaded the challenge of moving clothes and decided to find a solution. After years of development, Clothes and Go was born.

October) each year. Retail buyers are offered new lines and products at Dallas Market Center throughout its permanent showrooms and temporary exhibition space.
