On November 30th From Me To You Holiday Store will be celebrating its Grand Opening celebration from 11am-2pm. This unique shopping experience teaches empowerment, the gift of giving and provides an opportunity to strengthen life skills such as budgeting while they shop. The grand opening will have music, games, guest appearances and FREE food. As friends of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you are invited to join in on the celebration!
On Friday, November 29th (Black Friday) the From Me To You holiday store is kicking off its seventh season. The store will be open from Black Friday through Christmas Eve. All proceeds benefit at-risk youth served by Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas.
Big Brothers Big Sisters continues the kid’s shopping experience tradition but is expanding into a storefront in Alamo Ranch (5619 W Loop 1604 N, Suite 125, 78253) at the corner of 1604 and Culebra, next door to Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt.
The store has a Kids Shopping Zone, a gift-wrapping room, a lounge area and a professional Santa photo area (Saturday’s & Sunday’s). The hours of operation will be Monday – Friday 3pm-9pm, Saturday’s 9am – 9pm and Sunday’s Noon – 6pm.
How it works
Upon entering the store, guests will be greeted by one of our volunteer “elves”. The children will enter the kids shopping area meanwhile parents are able to enjoy the lounge area. Each child has the opportunity to find that special gift for the individuals on their list as well as learning how to stay within the budget given to them. At the store, shoppers can find gifts that range anywhere from $1-$25 such as ties, socks, wallets, scarfs, electronics, toys, jewelry, gift sets and more. After checking each person off their list, the child will wrap their gifts with the help of their volunteer “elf”. This will allow the child’s loved one to open their gift with true surprise on Christmas morning!
