Want to help women and look fabulous? Here’s how:
Our Sister’s Closet, the upscale retail shop of the YWCA, will celebrate its 5th anniversary this Thursday, April 26. The SW Oklahoma City location, 2209 W. 1-240 Service Road, will be hosting a special guest at 7 p.m. to celebrate.
“Queen Mum” Patsy Smith from the Consumer Queen organization will make a presentation to share tips on frugal shopping, couponing and give ideas on how to save and shop wisely.
“Our Sisters’ Closet is not only a money saving shop, but it is also one of the revenue generating opportunities for the YWCA Oklahoma City,” said Deb Stanaland, Chief Support Services Officer. “The whole idea of this store is to generate money to provide to other services in the agency, which we have done over the last five years.”
In addition to the Consumer Queen presentation, both Our Sisters’ Closet locations will have specials and discounts throughout the day. People can enter to win a $50 gift card, and the SW Oklahoma City store will remain open for late-night shopping from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.
“We have provided clothing and household items to more than 2,000 women and children since we opened the doors five years ago,” said Cindy Reynolds, Director of Retail Operations. “One thing that makes us special is once someone comes into our stores, they become loyal because of who we are, what we do and the services we provide.”
All revenue from both Our Sisters’ Closet locations benefits the YWCA shelter for battered women and children. The Edmond store, 101 E. Hurd, is open Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The SW Oklahoma City store is open Monday-Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. Clothing, accessories and household goods donations can be made at both stores.
