Anyone who has ever been inside a Clothes Mentor can tell you, this isn't consignment, it's resale – and it's better than retail.
At Clothes Mentor you can find like-new designer clothing at up to 70% off of retail. All of our apparel, shoes, jewelry, and accessories are "gently-used," and actually like-new – and we only buy pieces that are in great shape, on-trend, or classic and timeless. When you walk into a Clothes Mentor, you walk into a clean, beautiful, well-designed store with organized shelves and racks that make shopping fun and enjoyable. Clothes Mentor's apparel is also organized by color and size, making it even easier to find what you're looking for.
Clothes Mentor's concept of buying and selling gently used name-brand and designer clothing, shoes and accessories resonates with women in so many communities nationwide. The brand's reach continues to grow rapidly, but there are still many opportunities available for you to open a Clothes Mentor store of your own.
Why Our Franchise? Business Planning
We'll work with you to develop a plan that can be used as the financial and operational guide for your store during the critical start-up phase of your business.
We conduct three separate, comprehensive training programs that provide our new owners with both pre-opening and post-opening classes and hands-on experience.
We have a Small Business Administration (SBA) preferred status lender who can help you with prequalification before you commit to opening your store. This lender knows our brand, our business plan and how to process loans quickly and efficiently.
Store Opening Assistance
We have proven vendors already in place to get the best pricing and service on everything needed for store buildout: fixtures, equipment, interior/exterior signage, point-of-sale system and more.
Point-of-Sale (POS) System
The unique software that runs our proprietary POS system was specifically designed to meet the ever-changing needs of the resale business. With touch screen capabilities and a built-in buy matrix, the system assists in the buying and selling of gently used merchandise.
Regional Operations Manager (ROM)
Our ROMs serve as small business consultants for our franchisees. They are responsible for ensuring success in all areas of the resale operation, including financial performance, merchandising and customer service.
Before a store even opens, we help to create excitement about it. Then we continue to provide marketing support to all stores at both local and national levels. Get more in-depth information about each of these topics within the following pages.
