Cranbrook: My Best Friend’s Closet Opens in Cranbrook
Kaylyn Gervais, owner of the high end consignment store, My Best Friend’s Closet in Kimberley has expanded to open a second store in downtown Cranbrook.
The 1009 Baker Street location is 1,500 square feet of brightly lit retail space which features 100’s beautifully selected consignment clothing items and accessories.
“It all about quality,” says Kaylyn Gervais. “We carefully hand pick all our consign pieces. We only sell the best quality items. Good, affordable fashion never goes out of style.”
Kaylyn adds, “We are proud to be a female owned business. We have grown to have 7 employees between our two stores. We offer a fun atmosphere to work and shop in.
My Best Friend’s Closet has 700 active clients contributing consignments to the stores. The new Cranbrook store will start accepting consignments in the near future.
“At this point both stores have unique labels, so it’s worth checking out both our locations,” says Kaylyn. “We are particularly pleased to offer an extensive collection of beautiful and stylish fashions from the estate of Cranbrook resident Margaret McDonald.”
My Best Friend’s Closet is open Monday to Saturday in Cranbrook and 7 days a week in Kimberley.
