AUSTIN, TX.—Local business owner Lurinda McNamara is excited to announce the success of the Grand Opening of her store, Uptown Cheapskate held on Friday, March 28th. This trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 3005 S. Lamar Blvd. Ste 110-A in Austin, pays shoppers cash for their clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.

Several weeks prior to their Grand Opening, the store was open to the public to purchase customers’ gently used fashions, filling the racks in preparation for the Grand Opening. Customers can now come in and shop brand name and designer clothing and accessories at up to 70 percent less than retail.

Uptown Cheapskate focuses on buying current styles of apparel, shoes and accessories that appeal to a wide range of teens and young adults. Uptown Cheapskate pays customers cash on the spot or 25 percent more in store credit for their gently used items.

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the new Uptown Cheapskate store also offers many new products including jewelry and assorted apparel items.

“We are excited to repurpose fashionable clothing and help customers save money while at the same time build a stable income stream,” McNamara said. “It’s a win-win business for us and our customers.”
