Plato's Closet

Enjoy being your own boss in this fun, fast-paced environment!

Plato's Closet offers a truly unique retail franchise opportunity, as it is the only national teen retail store of its kind -- focusing on the buying and selling of gently used, brand-name apparel and accessories for girls and guys! We already have over 300 store locations throughout North America, and that number continues to grow.

Our stores fill a distinct niche in the retail marketplace. We are the only national resale business that specializes in the teen and twenty something market group. The wish list for trendy, brand-name apparel and the availability of it in virtually every teen's closet presents fantastic opportunities for both franchise owners and customers alike.
