The Growth of Resale

Clothes Mentor is not consignment or thrift. 

Each independently owned Clothes Mentor franchise sells gently used name-brand and designer clothing, shoes, and accessories for up to 70% off original retail prices. Our owners have a great eye for pieces that are in great condition and are on-trend or classic and timeless.


Why resale and is the resale industry growing?

Over the last decade, the impact of the so-called “retail apocalypse” has been very real. Traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores have been closing by the thousands, losing customers to e-commerce giants. So how is a store-based brand like Clothes Mentor growing so quickly?

It’s because we’re in a different market. We are in the RESALE industry, which has grown 21 times faster than the retail apparel market in recent years. Nearly 60 million women purchased secondhand clothing. Even big names like Nordstrom, Macy’s, and JC Penney have entered the resale game and now stock secondhand items in their inventory.



A few reasons why resale has exploded:

It’s exciting for buyers and sellers. Owners of name-brand clothing and accessories can earn cash for their gently used items, and resale customers love getting bargains on high-quality designer fashion.

It promotes sustainability. Instead of sending their unwanted items to a landfill, consumers can give their clothing a new home with someone who will love wearing it. Even celebrities like Taylor Swift and Maggie Rogers are celebrating the “vintage” secondhand fashion movement, making it an eco-friendly and trendy choice for consumers.

It makes fashion accessible to everyone. Fashion changes frequently, and shoppers want to keep up. With resale, shoppers don’t need to pay retail prices for brand-new items whenever trends change. They can enjoy high fashion at a price they can afford.



Clothes Mentor is all about providing fashion at great prices. Our franchise owners source their inventory from local customers with name-brand and designer pieces in their closets that they no longer wear (or have never worn). Clothes Mentor pays cash on the spot or offers store credit for clothing sizes 0 to 26 and maternity and shoes, handbags, and other accessories.

There are many Clothes Mentor stores throughout the United States, each serving its local community by buying and selling high-quality items. The concept puts money back into the pockets of the people within the community and promotes the reuse of goods, which also benefits the environment.

Most importantly, Clothes Mentor allows its franchisees to be in business for themselves and build the lifestyle they want. Our store owners can create a career that allows for personal and professional fulfillment.
