About Cate and Suzanne

Friends Cate and Suzanne met while working together at an investment consulting firm in San Francisco where they developed the idea of opening a “boutique outlet” during coffee breaks.

“As avid shoppers, we were already familiar with the local boutiques and knew all of the great designers they carried. We had an idea to open a boutique outlet that would sell only discounted designer clothes from these upscale boutiques.

Encouraged by the positive response to our idea, we left our investment jobs and started to search for the perfect location. We found it on Union Street in the living room of a converted Victorian home and opened My Roommate’s Closet in January 2004. By the next year, we had already outgrown our Union Street location and in 2005 we moved around the corner to our current home at 3044 Fillmore Street.

We now work with over 35 upscale boutiques in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, and New York City.

We love our new jobs and we’re looking forward to seeing you in our store!”
