I went down there with a friend for the very first time to help her unload her clothes in bags. They said that it would be 2 days before they could help her with her bags of clothes adn to leave them with the clerk. Uh hell no. She started to raise cane with them and they looked through her clothes and said that they couldnt buy them because of the brands that she had. Excuse me...everyone cant afford mall brands...that is why they go to off brand stores to buy clothes that are cheaper...plus they want to use there money wisely..and get as mucha s they can with 100.00. Instead of 2 things...at 50.00 a piece. Name brands dont mean crap to me. clothes are clothes.

My name is Andrea Ellis, I am a 24 year old single mom. I first went to your store and immediately fell in love, I was in awe. On my first trip I spent $50 for two pairs of pants, two tops, and one pair of shoes. So when I realized this past week that money was going to be tight (I currently have $4.00 to last me and my child two weeks, that's gas, food, a doctors appointment wednesday, etc...) I went thru my closet and decided I would sell my clothes to Plato's Closet for just a little bit of extra cash.When I showed up at Plato's Closet I had 7, full as full could be, bags of new/gently used clothes I had in my closet (half my wardrobe). Many of the items had been worn once or twice, if that, most still had the tags on them, and all had been purchased with in the last year. So I waited patiently for 45 minutes before it was my turn at the "We Buy Clothes Here" counter. When I walked up the man behind the counter said they were offering me $4.50 for my items. When he saw my shock he handed me 6 1/2 bags of clothes, leaving out one pair of pants and one thin tank top. I proudly stood in the store and told that employee that it felt as tho I was being slapped across the face. So I feel that it is my duty to go back to everyone I bragged to about Plato's Closet and inform them of this incident. I will be honest - I have been home two hours and I have sat and wrote this email as I called my girlfriends from work, and two out of three have agreed with me how wrong that was and have decided to not return to plato's closet, the third is in a meeting and has to return my call. I really wished I had never had this experience because I was looking forward to replace the clothes I sold with new clothes from their store, I guess the Asheville Mall will be the only people who profit from what happened.

I've had good experience buying things at Plato's Closet, but I trying to sell was not successful at all. I had most of the brands they say they're looking for, and what I brought in was very similar to what they had in the store. I did ask if they could tell me what they could give me for each item. I had already listed everything I brought in to make it easier for them, but they said the computer just comes up with a lump sum. However, if I wanted to take something off, then the computer could take the value of that item off the total. That made absolutely no sense to me, and I told the girl that. She said it would be about 40 minutes, then 15 minutes later this guy says they can't take any of my things because they're not "young" enough, or they're dated. I left, but decided to return and ask the manager specifically why they couldn't take several items that I knew for sure would sell. She came up with these lame answers, like my belt wasn't leather, but it was. Then there were little stretch marks in the holes, but there weren't, then it was a little too small. Anyway, I'll just say that I heard her complain that she was trying to get some things done and now she wouldn't be able to with people bringing things in. I have to totally agree that the salespeople are pretty rude, not eager to help the customer, and too reliant on the stupid computer to think for themselves. That's my 2 cents.

Well...I was disappointed and thought the Plato's closet website was misleading. I took it 4 huge baskets of my daughter's teenage clothes. I'm talking nice stuff from all the top stores. A lot of it looked like it had never been worn and they didn't take any of it. No where on their website did it say that they checked the tags on the clothing and that if it had not been bought in the past year, they wouldn't accept it! I went to a lot of work gathering the clothes and then had to load them all back up and carry them home. they did gve me a gift receipt to take $5.00 off an item in the store.

While I imagine that it may be difficult to work here (and face constantly telling people that their clothes have been rejected -- no one likes to hear that), there's no excuse for the unfriendliness of the employees.

Additionally, I'm not convinced they really know what to look for beyond a select number of brands. This can be pretty limiting. For instance, I brought in a small bag filled with still-in-stock Urban Outfitters dresses (so ladies, if you're a medium there's some good stuff waiting for you should you want to comb through the mess that is this store) and I was surprised at how low the offer was (and even more so that some were refused). Of course, it's better than not recouping any money, but I will probably try my luck on ebay the next time I attempt a clothing purge.

Better training/acceptance policies, better staff attitudes, and a more organized, attractive store would be a vast improvement.

BEWARE....Don't bring your clothes in TRASH BAGS to this location....ANN will bite your head off for not knowing the RULES!!! You should know better, you should call ahead of time to see if they accept the clothes in a trash bag 1st...duh. Don't you normally call consignment shops to see what they will and will not accept clothes in?? Um....NO, who does that...who gives a SHIT what the clothes are in as long as they are clean. You might try an be high end, but you will never make it quite that high. ANN, you own a consignment shop, it's not that serious! Take a deep breath and maybe try and treat the people who are trying to help you NOT go out of business with a little respect for the fact that they have taken time out of their day to help YOU! For the little $$ you give us for the clothes that most of us work very hard to get and only want to help the less fortunate, it's def not worth the ATTITUDE YOU GAVE!

I have sold clothes at both the Fargo and Grand Forks location and have always had a good experience. I would bring in a gargbage bag full of clothes and they would end up taking everything but just a few that were really worn or outdated. Not only that but I make close to $100 every time I sell to them. Not a long wait time (like 10-15 minutes) and they are always friendly and helpful. Really really enjoyed this company, but maybe it just depends on where the store is located as opposed to the company in general.

I completely agree with everyone who has tried to sell clothing to this place. I brought in about four bags of clothes, and they I think only took around four shirts. The ones they took are the ones I didn't think they'd take...and they didn't take some stuff that were brands like Express, Aeropostale, Abercrombie & Fitch. In fact, it didn't even look like they looked at them. The girls that work there are snobby and rude, not to mention they don't seem to know how to dress in style, and most of the clothing there is outdated and ugly. All I find there are grandma sweaters and ugly pants. This place is just an expensive Goodwill.

My 3 kids are ages 12.5 to 19... we couldn't find anything in this mess... it looks worse than a Goodwill store. As for selling your stuff there, total joke, as they snobbishly turn away 99.9% of good designer stuff then offer you pennies for what they keep. Not sure how they keep the place so packed, since from what I have read, seen, heard and experienced, they rarely buy much. Don't know if that's the case here, but when I lived in Florida some "consignment" stores were turning away folks because they were keeping the place stocked with stuff they bought at yard sales and sold back at their store... *shaking my head*

They say that they don't except clothing that isn't name brand or mall bought, stretched out faded, holes in it (that wasn't tended to be there). Or older than a year. Funny how I went there, actually found some clothes that were Wal-mart and target brands priced as high as abercrombie brands. Was very disappointed! Both in the clothing, and the staff

I went to the store to sell my clothes and they were so much picky and the workers out there were very rude. I did not sell anything. So I created my online profile at MyClozet and was able to sell couple of my item, which I thought would never sell.

Thanks to myclozet team.

Everyone sees the commercials on television and it appears to be a place where you can make fast cash for clothes you no longer wear- but this is not the case. The adds say that they take brand name clothes in good condition- but they take themselves way too serious. They don't accept clothes in trash bags even though their whole store is trashed, overwhelmed with cheap and poorly made clothes. You have to pick up the clothes they don't take before they close or they throw them away. I took in three large hampers filled with clothes they said they would take including Hollister, Abercrombie and Ralph Lauren and they didn't take anything! They said that the clothes had to have been made in the past year (how do they even know when it was made)! They are less than helpful and the store has appeared trashed every time I have gone in there. You have to search through every single item of clothing because it is not organized in anyway. I always find myself getting frustrated and leaving before finding anything I like because of the crampt and overwhelming atmosphere. I would recommend just donating your clothes to Good Will rather than even trying to sell them to Platos- you will just get frustrated.

Cons: unorganized, store appears trashed, unhelpful staff, disgusting bathroom, small fitting rooms

you cannot beat there pricing if you are on a budget, they are very picky but i figure i would be donating that stuff any way and they gave my cash for some stuff which helped with the price of the stuff i picked out waiten.... so all n all best to sell to em during the week when the people bringen stuff in is wat more manageable

I went just the other day to sell some clothes. They didn't buy anything out of the two bags I brought!
The girl's reasoning was because "most of the items looked a little worn."
This frustrated me because most of the stuff I'd brought had never been worn but once or twice.
I'd read all of the tips online. Everything I'd brought were either Hollister, AE, A&F, and other popular brands. Also, most of the stuff I had brought were bought in the past year. I also brought in a variety of items, including t-shirts and jeans and jackets.
I don't recommend trying to sell stuff here. Not only did they not buy anything, but there was a 2 hour wait. And, the girl told me she'd call when she finished looking through my bag and never did. I came by about 3 hours after drop off and got told that they didn't want anything.
It seems to me that Plato's doesn't really care about their customers.

I've sold here before....they rarely take the things I'd expect (i.e. designer jeans, etc.)....i've gone in & been told they don't take clothes in trash bags & of course mine was in a white bag....they proceeded to tell me I could go to a store and maybe get another bag (as long as it didn't come from anyone near that store)...then another time I brought clothes in a cloth bag to accommodate their non-trash bag policy....I was then told that I couldn't leave them to be looked at unless i could pick them up by closing (pretty much I was going to have to hang around for how ever many hours it was going to take to look through everyones items before mine)...yeah righhhhtttt. I thought the point was to buy your clothes, but it seems like they are just trying to make it impossible to even get your items looked at.

Sure, you hear a lot of things about Plato's Closet. But no one tells you that it's all a waste of time. I went to Plato's Closet after doing "research" on what items they said they'd guarantee they'd take. So, I had two bags of Levi, L.E.I, Mudd, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, GLO, etc. etc. and dropped it all off. Firstly, they told me they would call me when they were finished looking through it all [I had given them the items around 6:30pm]. Two hours later, I still didn't receive a call so I went by myself. Found out they were finished.... but barely any items were taken. Not even the items they said they'd take, 100% [aka. women's shorts]. Not only did I waste my gas driving to and from, I wasted the effort. I was better off at a yard sale or even Goodwill.

Don't bother selling your clothes to them. They won't take it, not even if it's brand new or a gurantee buy.

i understand that stores like this must be picky about what they buy and bring in, but i brought in 5 bags expecting at least a couple hundred dollars in return....and they ended up only taking a few things and offering me $33. some of my clothes were unworn with tags still on them (and definitely not out of style...tank tops and camis). terrible place, in general, to try to sell clothes to. a lot of my not-dated clothes are still worth money, and im going to sell them elsewhere.

Im in Chattanooga, TN and I love the Platos here. Sometimes they dont take all my stuff but thats the whole point. They only take great stuff which is the whole reason I love shopping there. If they took anything less I wouldnt shop there in the first place. It rocks!! I really want to buy a Platos Closet but there aren't anymore available here.

The buyers at this store tell you up front that you get only a percentage of what they sell it for. The prices are cheap so therefore it should be obvious you're not going to get more than that for clothing that you sell. Everyone was friendly when I went and helpful too.

The buyers at this store tell you up front that you get only a percentage of what they sell it for. The prices are cheap so therefore it should be obvious you're not going to get more than that for clothing that you sell. Everyone was friendly when I went and helpful too.

I took 2 huge bags of clothing into Platos Closet, pretty much all American Eagle, Gap, Hollister, Banana Republic and such. Some of the items still had tags. They said it would take them 2 hours to look through the things and they would call me when finished. About 2 hours later, they said that I could come back and get my quote. They did not even take one item. Dont waste your time dropping of your clothes. You are better off going to goodwill.

As a buyer for a Plato's in Michigan I can't speak for this location specifically but one thing we never claim to do is to give you your money's worth. We (at least my location) never claim to sell authentic designer brands either. We're not pros in that area. I do know that the clothes we buy are based off of a) resellability to teens, b) quality of the item. Items from stores such as Talbots, New York & Co. or Ann Taylor are considered a more professional label - ie. not something your average 16 year old would wear. The reason we pay more for some clothes for others is in part for the label, but also b/c they're just plain made better and will last. We also only pay 35-40% of what we sell the item for which is about 1/3 of what you pay for it in the store. So, a $30 pair of jeans would net you between $3.50 - $7 depending on the label. Is it less work for you than selling it all on ebay or craigslist? yes. Will you get your money back out them? no. Is it better than just giving everything to Goodwill? yes.
PROS: great selection, current trends (like you find in Seventeen or TEEN magazines...)
CONS: having to wade through TONS of people on Sundays to use a fitting room?

I have never had any issues with buying clothes from Plato's Closet, but my experience selling things to them has made me never want to go back for anything! I took in about 20 items of clothing which were all very cute, in style, and not-cheap brands like Express, Jones New York, Cache, to name a few. Also I brought 7 DVDs and a pair of cute barely-worn shoes. First, the buyer was rude and acted like my stuff wasn't worth their time. Second, they were only going to take the 7 DVDs and 3 or 4 pieces of clothing, and give me LESS than $20 for all of that. The DVDs alone cost me $10-20 apiece. What a rip-off. If you're looking to actually make it worth your while to sell some of your stuff you'd have better luck with Ebay or Craigslist.

I went in to Plato's Closet after seeing an ad about selling old clothes. I brought in a whole bag full of clothes that didn't fit me anymore or chirstmas present I didn't like and never returned. This included American Eagle jeans, The Limited jeans and other expensive items, some were never even worn! They took only two of the most unlikely articles of clothing. I was really surprised and I only got $3.45. That was not enough to pay for the gas to get there!

If you're a guy with a generic sense of style and looking to save a buck, then this place is for you. Basically the clothes and prices you would find in an outlet mall. There are some higher end clothes, but most clothes seem geared towards middle schoolers or people who still dress like one. To be a fair, the prices are decent, and it is one of the few places that will give you cash on the spot for your clothes.

I took 2 bags of name brand clothes & some stylish but off brand hang-up items. The sales girl helped me put the hang-up (some from places like Wal-Mart's junior section-in a bag. I was asked to leave them overnight. The next day, the same person greeted me. They took NONE! She said, "They were all from places like Wal-Mart, right?" Only the ones she had helped me with were. She told me I could leave them there if I didn't want to "bother with them" as charities come in weekly to pick-up items. I told her "No, I'll take them to a consignment shop." I got the feeling that if I left them they would've tried to sell them anyway! After leaving, I noticed the other 2 bags were EXACTLY as I had left them- same folds & all! Oh well, their loss, my financial gain!

Pros: inexpensive, good selection

Cons: Buying consumer items, not profitable

.

The girls who work there/run the place are pretty rude. Don't bring your clothes there if they are not a name brand (even if they are cute!).

Prime example...I brought in a new shirt from Wet Seal, tags still intact, and they told me it wasn't a current style. This baffled me because I bought it less than a few months before! Then I brought in a new pair of DKNY jeans without tags and they told me those weren't in style as well. So they are very picky.

But they do have a nice selection and I guess they wouldn't have that if they took everything people brought in.

PROS: great prices and selection
CONS: rude salespeople, picky about buying clothes

I recently brought many of my old clothes that do not fit anymore. To my surprise, they did not accept half the clothes I bought. In addition for the clothes they did accept, I receieved an average of 3-4 dollars per item I brought. However, they did have a decent collection of clothes to choose from that were pretty low prices. Overall, Plato's closet has a wide selection of clothes to choose from, but when it comes to selling your clothes, this is not the place to make a good profit.

Plato's closet was the greatest thing thats ever happened to me. I had plenty of clothes ranging from Abercrombie and Fitch, American Eagle, Gap, And Hollister that didn't fit me from my high school years because I hit a big growth spurt. I didn't know what to do with the clothes, I was about to bring them to goodwill until I saw the Plato's Closet commercial. After taking it to Plato's closet, they took all my clothes except a shirt, because the color was fading. I was glad at the ease of making some sort of money, and the customer service was nice. Plato's closet is a great place to make money from your tight clothes.

From my personal experience, I do not like Plato's Closet. They advertise that they want to buy clothes, but they dont buy everything. Basically all they want are brands such as American Eagle, Abercrombie and Fitch, and Hollister. I tried to take in some clothes that were brand new and still had tags but they said they weren't of adequate style. They also were pretty rude. Experiences may vary from person to person, but i'd rather take my clothes to Goodwill.

PROS:
CONS: Rude service, Doesn't buy some clothes, even if new.

This is a consignment store that sells clothing for teens. They have an excellent selection of used clothes at outstanding prices. I have never consigned clothes here but have bought many great used clothes.

a great value store, name brands and they give you cash for your stuff! They dont carry vintage and older stuff just newer styles which kinda would be nice but a great place to get some money and change your stuff so your not wairing the same stuff.
