At Plato's Closet® you'll find a huge selection of trendy, designer styles as well as those every day basics you can't live without—all at up to 70% off mall retail prices!
We buy gently used teen and young adult style clothing and accessories that are name brands, cool, hip, trendy, clean and in good condition. With no appointment needed, we buy every day and will pay you on the spot! Most of our stores buy and sell girls sizes 0 to 22 and guys sizes 28 to 40 waist, and we typically buy current styles that are still in the mall.
Plato's Closet continues its reign as the leading national retail store of its kind, with over 450 locations across North America and new stores opening each month our impact continues to grow.
The brand is rapidly expanding, but there are still untapped markets across the US and Canada ripe for a new franchisee to establish their own Plato's Closet.
