Ann and Jenny Siner, the sibling duo behind My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic and Well Suited, are turning their energy toward a charity endeavor — opening the 3,200-square-foot My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store in Chandler’s Promenade at Fulton Ranch (also home to one of the My Sister’s Attic locations).
The thrift store carries everything from clothing and shoes to household items and furniture and is hosting a special grand opening celebration at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 1; Shoppers will want to get in line early, as the first 50 guests receive 50 percent off everything.
“We have poured so much love and good ol’ fashion sweat equity into My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store. I think our shoppers will be really surprised at how inexpensive these items will be and even more impressed to know their dollars will go back into the community,” said Ann Siner.
My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store is the 15th location for the Valley sisters who founded Eco-Chic Consignments in 1991. First there was My Sister’s Closet (1991), then My Sister’s Attic (1997) and Well Suited (2001), and now My Sisters’ Charities Thrift Store, which opened in July.
This past year, Ann Siner and her sisters, co-founder Jenny Siner and head stylist Tess Loo, donated 32 percent of the net profits from the My Sister’s Closet stores to charity.
“There are so many worthy organizations out there to support, and we believe focusing on a few areas at once makes the most meaningful impact,” Ann Siner said. “This is why we are very proud and excited to share with you the formation of My Sisters’ Charities foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. My Sister’s Closet, My Sister’s Attic and Well Suited contribute revenue, manpower and unsold merchandise to the foundation, which in turn helps to protect wildlife in peril, heal women leaving abusive relationships and end the euthanasia of unwanted dogs and cats.”
