SALT LAKE CITY, UT. – Feb. 7, 2014 —Uptown Cheapskate, a leading reseller of name-brand clothes and accessories for teens and young adults, is exhibiting at this year’s Franchise Expo South held in Houston, Texas Feb. 6 through Feb. 8. Representatives from Uptown Cheapskate will be at booth 422 offering franchise information to prospective owners as well as showcasing the latest in the resale market.

As a trademark brand of BaseCamp Franchise, Uptown Cheapskate was founded in 2009 as a teen and young adult fashion exchange specializing in name brands, current fashions, and designer couture. Uptown Cheapskate buys fashionable clothes, shoes and accessories from its customers, and then sells them for a fraction of the retail value. In four years, the company has grown to over 40 franchise locations nationwide with more than fifteen scheduled to open this year.

Uptown Cheapskate stores manage their inventory using a sophisticated software program with a database containing thousands of brands. “We built our buying software so people from all walks of life and various fashion backgrounds can correctly price an item for sale in the store,” said Scott Sloan, Founder of Uptown Cheapskate. “This, combined with our dedicated franchising support staff and proven systems, has allowed our franchisees to realize the potential of the concept.”

The Franchise Expo South serves the Southwestern U.S., Latin America and the Caribbean territories. Over a hundred franchises will be on hand providing information on the latest franchising trends as well as assisting them on what to look for in owning a franchise.
