After running many successful garage sales (complete with fitting rooms) owner Marianne Evans decided to open a brick and mortar shop in the neighborhood. She opened her first store, Your best friends closet, in 2004. Her first consigners were family and friends. The little 1100 sf store filled up quickly with inventory. Bustling and busy since opening day in November of 2004, Marianne knew that to accommodate the growing customer base and ever-increasing consignors, she had to expand. Little did she know what was about to happen to the financial state of the country. So, in the midst of a recession, she expanded her business in 2008 to 3360 sf. Thus, giving her shop more ways to help families looking to make money in consignment as well as help those to affordably dress their families. The media encouraged second hand shopping as a truly smart way to shop. After all, who doesn’t like to save money?
As Consignment, second-hand shopping, resale and thrifting became more trending, Marianne expanded Your Best Friend’s Closet yet again in 2011 by adding an additional 2,291 sf. Her store was now over 5,600 sf and furniture and home décor was added to the consignment mix.
As furniture and home décor quickly outgrew the space, Marianne saw again the need her customers and consignors had. In 2015 she opened Your Best Friend’s Home, a 4,300 sf store of showrooms filled with carefully selected modern, traditional, eclectic, a few antique pieces, but mostly trendy and nearly new furniture and home decor. Located just a few doors down from Your Best Friend’s Closet, in Algonquin, IL , Your Best Friend’s Home was born.
When the retail space between her two stores, Your Best Friend’s Closet and Your Best Friend’s Home became available she expanded yet again. And on July 10, 2018, BEST FRIEND’S CONSIGNMENT was opened, creating a one stop shop for all savvy shoppers . This nearly 12,000 sf shopping experience, of fashion, furniture, home décor and more, still has the same feel of friendship, fun, quality merchandise and prices as always.
