Grand Opening Celebration for Plato’s Closet in Clarksville set for June 17th

Local entrepreneurs open popular teen and twenty-something clothing retail store that recycles fashion at a discount

Clarksville, TN – With Plato’s Closet® of Clarksville open at 2250 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, local teens and twenty-somethings now have a place to bring that excess of stylish clothing that has been piling up in their closets and dressers for months. The hip, trendy clothing store buys and sells guys and girls gently used, brand-name clothing and accessories, including shoes, belts, purses, jewelry and other teen items.

“Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market,” said Brandy Vaughn, who owns the Plato’s Closet in Clarksville with her husband, Jim Vaughn. “We are part of a unique retail resale business that specializes in the teen and the young adult market segment. 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.”

As a family with three growing children, the Vaughns understand the importance of saving money. The viable business opportunity and fun culture made this the perfect solution for the Vaughns to pursue their dreams of owning their own business.

According to Brandy, teens and twenty-somethings love to shop at Plato’s Closet because they can get brand-name clothing at great values. Parents love the fact that their kids 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.

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

The opening in Clarksville is part of the brand’s expansion plan which calls for three additional locations throughout Tennessee. Plato’s Closet’s parent company, Winmark Corporation, which also franchises Play It Again Sports®, Once Upon A Child®, and Music Go Round®, has put into motion a growth program to elevate its franchise presence in the Tennessee market with more than 19 additional locations in the coming years across all brands. During 2009, Winmark opened 49 new stores and now has franchise locations in 48 states and Canada.
