Confidentially Yours (CY) is adding new items to its inventory and remodeling the interior of the store at its Round Barn Centre location in Champaign.
The remodel, which began April 21st, is expected to go on for about a week and will include a number of updates throughout the store in order to maximize its space and show off its latest line of women’s boutique products. Updates include new flooring, displays, paint and wallpaper, and more.
The remodel comes after the announcement of Alexandria Stewart as the new owner. Stewart joined the CY staff in 2011 and instantly became very passionate about the mission of the store.
“I fell in love with the store the first time I stepped foot in the building,” shared Stewart. “I believe that everyone has a calling in life, and I am beyond grateful that I found mine. I am inspired by the strength and courage of the women that I have met over the last several years. I am very excited for this new journey and be able to carry on the values that CY has to offer.”
Jean Duden founded CY in 1982 to help women regain their confidence after chemotherapy and surgery. Duden originally opened the store inside the former Mercy Hospital in Urbana. She provided wigs and hair care services for cancer patients. Over the years, the services and product selection continued to evolve and expand to meet customer needs, and eventually CY grew out of its hospital space and into the store’s present location at Round Barn Centre in Champaign.
CY has continued to grow its selection and services by offering the latest styles in swimwear, lingerie, undergarments, shapewear, activewear, sleepwear, and more.
“We carefully curate our selections each fashion season to bring our customers the highest quality bras and lingerie for everyday and special occasion,” said Stewart. “Our goal is for you to have properly sized bras that fit your unique shape so that you not only look good but feel your best. We make the bra selection and fitting process simple, easy, and comfortable with complimentary bra fittings and certified mastectomy fitting services.”
To celebrate the store’s new ownership and store remodel CY is offering 20% off all items on their website, www.cybras.com. This special online sale will run through April 28th and is valid towards all purchases made through the CY website.
The store will reopen on Monday, April 29th at 10 a.m. and will officially celebrate the remodel and new ownership with a ribbon cutting on Thursday, May 9th at 9 a.m.
