The garage door went up and shoppers flooded Letarte Swimwear’s Carter Henry Drive headquarters for the start of its annual summer warehouse sale with a Friday night reception benefiting cancer charities.

Bin after bin of bathing suit combinations, beach wraps and related apparel were arranged throughout Letarte’s showroom space, adjacent to the downtown train station. Shoppers browsed through the displays while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres, with the proceeds raised at the pre-sale reception benefitting the Norma F. Pfriem Breast Care Center and the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.

The Letarte sale continues at the warehouse, 160 Carter Henry Drive, through June 19. Weekend hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 13, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 14, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 15 to 18, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 19.
