Uptown Cheapskate is not your average thrift store. We buy only the most stylish gently used clothes and accessories you loved yesterday and sell them today at up to 70% less than mall prices! Unlike consignment stores, you can earn cash on the spot when you sell us your like-new fashions.
Now with more than 50 franchise locations to serve you, our stores offer low prices on new and second-hand clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry from your favorite brands and designers—all under one roof! Uptown Cheapskate's award winning upscale resale franchise model is primed for growth and we're looking for dedicated franchise partners.
Did you know the average American purchases 68 items of clothing every year? The truth is, most of it simply doesn't get worn. That's why Uptown Cheapskate is such an effective business model – it creates an opportunity to cycle that clothing back into our communities through a unique resale structure.
Don't let the idea of business ownership conjure images of late nights working, taking time away from your family and friends. There is a better way. Uptown Cheapskate owners are able to build a successful business while maintaining a work life balance they seldom saw while working in Corporate America. This comes from buying into a proven concept that works.
Since 1992, the Leadership Team and Franchisees at Basecamp Franchising have been perfecting the resale clothing franchise model.
