Plato's Closet is a hub for gently used fashions that woos male and female shoppers with a rotating cast of modish outfits and accessories from popular brand names. Patrons can enjoy plush embraces from cardigans by American Eagle ($14) or give a horse the human treatment with two pairs of jeans from brands such as Hollister ($22) or Miss Me ($40–$50). Winterize appendages with a selection of snow-deflecting boots ($8–$20) and an assortment of wintry hats and scarves (starting at $3–$8). Items range in size from 00–20 for girls and 28–40 (waist) for guys, and most wares were first seen in retail stores within the past 12–18 months, which is the average lifespan of a denim tree.
Always looking to keep their merchandise up to date, Plato's Closet pays cash on the spot for gently used fashionable clothing.
Plato's Closet curates a collection of gently used name-brand apparel, incentivizing their customers to bring in their own quality used clothing for cash. Each week, the staff pores over piles of clothing and accessories in search of young and on-trend sweaters, dresses, shorts, and hazmat suits from popular brands. After picking out the best clothes and accessories, the staff reshelves items, priced at up to 70% off their retail value. The style-savvy staff aims to keep the shop’s stock in line with current trends and classic fashion statements, generally choosing only pieces that are 12–18 months old. Most of the available apparel comes in sizes 00–19/20 for girls and waist size 28–40 for guys.
