Alice Cooper has opened a thrift store in Scottsdale, Arizona, last week, giving his fans a chance to own his old clothes.
Alice Cooper’s Attic & Thrift Store will be stocked with pieces from the rocker’s personal collection.
Alice Cooper told AZCentral.com: “I’m a shopaholic. When I’m on tour, I come home with 10 suitcases full of clothes. So I just go through and say, <<OK, store, store, store, store>>. A lot of good labels. Everything that’s mine was worn.”
A portion of the proceeds from the store will benefit Alice Cooper’s Rock Teen Center, which is across the street from his new store.
Alice Cooper continued: “Eventually what I’d like to do is since we teach music and art and everything, we should also teach retail. We should teach them (kids) to run a cash register because a lot of kids that aren’t musically inclined, it’s another way of training them. It’s sort of, like, anything you can do to get them away from the street life. Because the street life, there’s only two endings for that. In jail or dead. Anytime you can give a vocation to a kid, that’s what you do.”
Alice Cooper’s Attic and Thrift Store is located at 13627 N. 32nd Street on the southeast corner of 32nd Street and Thunderbird Road in Phoenix.
