Clothes Mentor, the upscale used-clothing store for women, is holding a grand opening Thursday for its second Charlotte location, at the Arboretum shopping center.
Both stores are franchises, locally-owned by Charlotteans Shawn and Alyssa Cox. At the Arboretum location, the first 25 customers in line Thursday will receive a $25 gift card. The store opens at 10
Here's a description of what Clothes Mentor buys from their FAQ: "We buy 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."
They then resell those items at (I'm told by female friends who shop there) reasonable prices.
The Arboretum store has been open for a few weeks to buy clothing and fill out its inventory, but Thursday is the first day it will be open to shoppers.
The other Clothes Mentor in Charlotte is on Kings Drive, near Morehead Street.
