The Silver Umbrella has been added to Chicago’s Hyde Park flourishing commercial district. The Silver Umbrella is an essential shopping destination for new merchandise and gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, housewares, furniture and books.

Why the name? Zakiyyah’s nine-year-old daughter is the mastermind behind the brainchild – The Silver Umbrella.

Located at 5305 South Hyde Park Boulevard, Chicago, Illinois, 60615, The Silver Umbrella is a thrift store for men, women, and kids.

True to its motto, “Style should not be costly,” The Silver Umbrella brings affordable style to the heart of an upscale community: Hyde Park.

Entrepreneurs at heart, sisters and co-owners, Zakiyyah and Shaakira Muhammad are very appreciative of the feedback they are getting from the community.

 

 

 

"Our customers are very enthusiastic about it all – the overall esthetic of the store, the quality of the merchandise, the prices, and the 'treasures' they find at the store. I love hearing how people appreciate our work," says Zakiyyah.

According to Shaakira, "The Silver Umbrella is a win-win for everyone.  First, our goal is to serve the community and the environment by offering a

means to recycle.  Second, we strive to help the pocketbooks of our customers.  Finally, we are helping our clients turn unwanted items into cash."

The sisters are very selective about the items they carry in the store. They market effectively to the community to ensure inventory comes in regularly–and is sold quickly, as well.

“We want our customers to experience our love for thrifting. Thrifting is a lifestyle that we live by,” says Zakiyyah.
