The Modern Day Goodwill

Marie Bobb , Staff Writer

We know of Goodwill as being the home of hand-me-downs and it is often looked down upon by the younger generation. Multiple people claim that the clothes are not fashionable and trendy, but now there is an alternative to Goodwill that has all the latest trends.

This modern thrift store is called Plato’s Closet and can be found in multiple locations. The clothing store allows you to sell your gently used clothing and also has the latest fashions for low prices. Walking throughout the store you see all types of name brand clothing in perfect condition and for prices that you’d never expect.

My personal experience there was amazing. I wanted to do some quick back-to-school shopping at a place that had great deals but also great clothes, and honestly that’s hard to find nowadays. I heard about Plato’s Closet from a friend and when I actually went for myself,  I was automatically hooked.

If you’re looking for a store to buy a new designer purse, shoes, and clothes, then Plato’s Closet is definitely the place you’re looking for. Not only are the clothes name-brand and cheap but Plato’s Closet always keeps in mind the latest trends when they accept clothes, so you won’t have to worry about being out of style if you shop there.

The store is also a great place to make quick cash. If you bring some gently used brand name garments you could sell them to Plato’s Closet and make some money. This is perfect for teens who don’t have a job but have a lot of extra clothes on their hands. Plus, while exchanging these clothes you might lie your eyes on a cute top you’ve been wanting.

Plato’s Closet is the perfect place to go when you don’t have the time or money to stop by a mall. To put it in simpler words, Plato’s Closet is basically a mall squeezed into one store.
