High end labels like Ralph Lauren are not just in the mall or even the discount department stores.

They are also in a little store off the beaten path on Browns Mill Road. It's called the Care Mart and it's full of discounted clothing, furniture, books and toys.

Care Mart currently carries name brand clothing labels like Ralph Lauren, Roca Wear and Free People.

The money consumers spend at the Care Mart not only gets them bargains, but helps fund the charity Caring for Others. "This is a homelessness prevention program," said CEO Eslene Richmond Shockley. "We help to pay rent for those having problems and even the light bills," she added. Caring For Others also helps those in need with food and clothing. The charity, serves more than 300 families in 20 metro Atlanta zip codes but Shockley said demand always outstrips supply.

The Care Store is located at 3537 Browns Mill Rd. Suite 2, Atlanta, GA 30354. Hours are Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Saturday 11:00 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.
