BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – There’s a new business in town that aims to reduce the environmental impact of clothing and save you money.

Local businesswoman Shannon Styes has just opened “Cheap Chick” in Homewood.

“I came up with the idea a few years ago when I had young kids, had worked in retail all my life and only had tons of clothes. Church sales took a lot of work and came up with the idea,” says Styes. “During the pandemic, we revisited the idea and discovered that younger generations are really embracing second-hand items, so we thought this would be the right one. time to try it.”
