Are you trying to build a great wardrobe, but have a limited budget? Are
you looking for a way to make a little extra money?
Uptown Cheapskate is a store that will buy and sell new and gently used
designer and high-end merchandise for teens and young men and women.
At Uptown Cheapskate you can find designer merchandise at savings of
70% or more off of regular retail. They carry shoes, handbags, jewelry,
clothing (including a large selection of designer and high-end jeans) and
hats. The clothing in the store is mainly for fashion lovers from 16 to 30.
Although Uptown Cheapskate caters to both men and women, the women’s
selection is larger than the men’s.
“Uptown Cheapskate is an entirely new type of resale store. Unlike many
second-hand stores, we hand pick our clothing and buy only the best styles
and fashions – making it easy for you to find great styles without having to
dig through racks. Uptown is also completely organized according to style,
color and function, making it easy to find the clothes that best match your
style,” said Uptown Cheapskate Buyer Scott Lanham.
Lanham added, “It’s a great place to both shop and sell. We buy fashionable
used clothes every day with no appointment needed. If we are able to buy
your things, you can either trade in your clothes for cash or in-store credit.
If you choose to take cash, you will receive 30 to 40 percent of what we will
price your item at. For example, if we price a shirt at $6 you will get about
$2 – and we pay you right away. If you chose store credit, you’ll get 25%
more than what we pay in cash. You can spend your store credit anytime.
Lanham noted that Uptown Cheapskate’s inventory is trendy, up-to-date
and only slightly used. Uptown Cheapskate is very selective about the
brands and styles it carries. The store will not accept clothes with holes,
rips, rings around the collar, sweat stains, peeling fabrics or loose
stitching. It will also not accept clothes that are out of style.
Uptown Cheapskate now has two Utah locations. The Salt Lake City store is
located at 353 W. 200 S. and the Bountiful store is at 400 W. 500 S. Both
stores are open Monday through Saturday.
