Ray Clayton hangs the sign across the store front of Clayton Consignment and Thrift, the newest family owned and operated business to open in Bridge City. The store, located next to Rays Barber Shop, offers an array of items that include clothing, household goods, electronics, toys and much more.

Clayton, his wife Mary and seven children, relocated here from Nashville in April when Clayton was transferred to Dupont in Orange. The new business is located at 2122 Texas Ave and officially opens this Friday.
