Lead the Teen Resale Space in Your Community!

For most teens, what's new and hot and trendy always commands the most attention. From social media, to music and entertainment, and, of course, fashion. At Winmark®, we've developed the Plato's Closet brand to meet these demands and offer teens and twenty-somethings high-quality, gently used apparel that is stylish, affordable, and very "now."

With more than 475 North American locations—and more opening every month—our Plato's Closet brand continues to provide marketplace success for franchisees passionate about delivering the latest trends and styles to the ever-changing fashion needs of young men and women. If you're interested in owning and operating your own dynamic, fast-paced teen retail-resale store, then our team at Winmark is ready to hear from you.

In 2023, our average Plato’s Closet location had sales of $1,300,065, and our top 25% of these stores (117 locations) had average gross sales of $1,999,194.* Entrepreneur Magazine agrees and has ranked Plato's Closet in the publication's Franchise 500—a list that the brand has been included on for over a decade!

*The Average Store numbers are the 2023 Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit amounts stated in Schedule “I” of the 2024 Plato’s Closet® Franchise Disclosure Document (as reported by the 469 stores in the U.S. and Canada that had been in operation at least one year as of December 31, 2023). Of the 469 stores, 196 or 42% of the stores attained or exceeded the Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit. The top quartile Average Gross Sales and Average Gross Profit only relates to the 117 Plato’s Closet® Stores that ranked in the top 25% of the gross sales range. Of the 117 stores in the top quartile, 45 or 38% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Sales and 45 or 38% of the stores attained or exceeded the top quartile Average Gross Profit. A new franchisee’s results will likely differ from these results.

Bring Plato's Closet to Your Community

Tap into the Pulse of Today's Fashion

You don't have to be an industry expert to know that young people spend a lot on clothes, but you may not be aware of just how big this market is. This demographic spends about $50 billion a year on clothing and accessories—and another $170 billion is spent by others (like parents, etc.) on them. The Plato's Closet brand was designed to fill a niche in this marketplace where our stores are both buying the latest fashions and styles from customers and selling them back to our clientele at discounts at up to 70% off regular retail pricing.
