Grand Opening of New, Local Plato’s Closet®


Plato’s Closet of Brandon will be opening January 27th @ 10:00 am, local teens and twenty something residents will now have a place to bring that stylish clothing that has been overflowing their closets and dressers for months! The one-of-a-kind store buys and sells gently used, name brand clothing, as well as accessories and other teen items.

 “Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market,” said Brianne Roblin, Owner of the Brandon’s Plato’s Closet®. “We are part of the only national resale business that specializes in the teen and the young adult market group. The great thing about our business is that the wish list for trendy, brand-name apparel and the availability of it in virtually every teen’s closet presents fantastic opportunities.”

According to Roblin, teenagers love to shop at Plato’s Closet® because they can get brand name clothing at great values. Both teens and their parents love the fact that they can take their gently used brand name clothing and turn it into cash. Unlike a typical consignment store, Plato’s Closet gives you extra cash in your pocket on the spot.

“Unlike traditional retailers, we don’t try to create new fashion trends, we respond to actual trends in a timely and value-oriented manner,” Roblin said.

There are over 475 Plato’s Closet® locations in the United States and Canada. Each location is individually owned and operated. Franchised in 1999, the used clothing stores have become the fastest growing chain in the Winmark Corporation family of brands. Winmark has over 1005 franchise-owned and operated businesses throughout North America and is a strong and stable franchisor.
