For those of you who are sick and tired of spending hundreds year after year on this year’s school necessities, look no further, Plato’s Closet has the answer! It has the latest trends, styles, and brands you can buy at any other department store in Baton Rouge; the only difference is on the price tag. Brands like Banana Republic, Hollister, Abercrombie and Fitch, Gap and Forever 21 are affordable without being out of date.
Average price per item at Plato’s Closet in Baton Rouge:
Pants – 12.00
Shoes – 5.00
Purse – 16.00
Dress – 8.00
Sunglasses – 6.00
But don’t fret if you already succumbed to the back to school binge there’s still hope. According to a recent Apartment Guide survey, 80% of people reorganize or clean out their apartment between summer and fall. As you switch out summer clothes for your colder-weather wardrobe, remember that you may be sitting on a stash of cash in the form of old outfits you no longer wear. Why not make some money as you declutter by selling items which are only taking up precious storage space? Of course, donating is always an option too! Plato’s Closet buys from their customers. They’ll take almost anything in great condition, in style or always in a high demand. Old uniforms are gold and that dress you bought for a party a week ago, but has no place in your closet, can find comfort in the Plato’s Closet family.
But for those of you who feel that they want the absolute best for their children (as all mother’s feel I presume) that doesn’t mean you have to be the highest bidder. At Plato’s you can still get the clothes your kids’ love, without spending such a pretty penny.
Questions to ask yourself when cleaning out your closet this fall…
Do you like it?
Have you work it in the last year?
Does it need to be hemmed sewn or repaired?
Does it fit?
Is it age appropriate?
