Clothes Mentor opens on Kings Drive

Charlotte has a new upscale used clothing store, as Clothes Mentor is opening on South Kings Drive, in a shopping center near the intersection with Morehead Street.

The store is currently only open for buying women's apparel. They'll buy "gently used clothing, shoes, accessories, and perfume" for cash. According to the store's FAQ, they're looking for: "Women's clothing sizes 0-26, maternity, shoes, handbags, accessories, & designer perfumes. We look at purchasing tops, blazers, coats, dresses, skirts, shorts, capris, jeans, pants, shoes, jewelry, & belts. We are looking for items that are in great condition and that are current to stores in the last 1-2 years."

Clothes Mentor (main corporate website) has 54 locations in 22 states. Their only other North Carolina store is in Wilmington. The business was founded by Lynn and Dennis Blum, the Columbus, Ohio, couple that also founded Plato's Closet.

Clothes Mentor needs about six weeks to build up its inventory, and expects to open to the public for sales sometime in July. Expect more to come, and hopefully an interview with the local couple that owns the Charlotte Clothes Mentor, as we get closer to the opening date.

Ugh Obama's economic expansion of more dollar generals, flea markets, bbq joints, and used clothing retailers. Pathetic and depressing. Bring on Nov 4.

So, were there no resale shops before the Obama Administration? And will they all close once he leaves office? The next time you go to a restaurant, be sure to take your own fork. Yep, someone else had the restaurant fork in their mouth just hours ago. Let the next President change that.
