I love it here! The first time I brought clothes in they didn't buy very much but it was all older stuff. Once they explained how the store worked I brought trendy clothes in and they bought almost all of it! The staff is nice and helpful unless they are extremely busy. I love thier selection and prices. I shop here first before I hit the mall and it works our great. I have shopped at other Plato's in and they are not as good as this one. Bring in nicer stuff and you will get more money...duh!

I have been going to this store since it opened around 04-05. It started out decent. Reasonable offers for the awesome NEW things I sold to them, nice employees, and a clean store. Over the years it has totally went downhill. I AM SO TIRED of being treated like a second class citizen everytime I go in there. The teeny boppers that work there have a bad attitude, and obviously hate their jobs. I went in there tonight to sell them a couple of items. The lady who was reviewing my clothing was just tossing my things around, letting them fall on the floor. Maybe that is why all their clothes look as if they have been worn at least fifty times. She had a horrible attitude. They are no help at all. As far as the selection itself, it is not bad, but it could be better. Maybe these kids that WORK IN A THRIFT STORE, need to realize that they are here to help us ((the customers)) and not to share stories about how many guys they slept with the night before, and how they are still drunk. This place sucks.

I was appauled by the behavior of the staff. They were laughing and discussing the fact that they had been partying and were hung over from the night before.. I know that many of these girls are not yet 21 and this is not a favorable impression. Don't know exactly who was in charge, but alot of female staff/ female manager standing around and talking. Definitely will not recommend this store. Rudeness of staff does not make up for any great finds, Perhaps a breatholizer test for the staff would be a good idea.!

Plato's Closet is a joke. I have impeccable taste and style in clothing. I bought in some gently worn clothing from stores such as: J Crew, Banana Republic, Target, Marshall's, Express, Gap and other nice, fashionable retail stores. Most of the clothing had only been worn a couple of times, but since the birth of my daughter a year ago, I finally came to the realization that these clothes would be best on another person's body. After going through their horrible, worn down, wet seal and rampage goodwill thrift store clothing that they sell, with the exception of a couple of high end jeans (true religion and seven for all mankind), the snobby "manager" dismissed my deals due to them being "old and outdated." I felt that she was old and outdated and could use a couple of my threads that I was willing to part with. I did not get a friendly and welcoming vibe when I first entered, so that should have been my cue to head for the hills, but I just thought that they were extremely busy to the hectic holiday season that lies ahead. I would never recommend this place to anyone unless you like being treated poorly and not making a deal. Buffalo Exchange in Center City is more proffesional and friendlier.

I have never sold Platos any clothes so I'm not sure on their rates, but I've bought some clothing for my daughter. Their prices varied. On some things I thought it was a great deal, but I thought other things were priced pretty high. The employees were all very nice and helpful. My only complaint was that some of the racks were a bit overcrowded and hard to look through.

I went into Platos Closet to look around awhile back. My first impression was good. They had a good selection, and good prices. They even had a good store atmosphere. But, when I tried to sell some stuff to them that was even new with tags and in style, they offered me 25 cents-50 cents each item. I was blown away by how much money they must be making off each item. They were also very rude to me and acted like I didn't belong in their store. I was shopping for someone else, but I looked out of place as the married younger woman. Teenagers were running the store. This is kind of like an Abercrombie of consignment stores.

PROS: Good selection, good prices.
CONS: Don't give you hardly any money for your trades. Not worth your time.

Plato's Closet is a place where you can take your clothes and trade them, or sell them for cash. They have a great selection of gently used clothing for young girls and women. It is a great place to take your girls for school clothes or when they need something a little nicer to wear. I have taken clothes there and the only downfall is that you really don't get much money for the clothes that you sell. I think a couple more dollars would make it more worth your while, but it is still a good place to go for clothes at bargain prices.
