Why Own an Uptown Cheapskate?

Expert Marketing. Trusted Brand. Proven Success.

As an entrepreneur and aspiring business owner, it’s time to discover how opening a resale shop could be the perfect next step toward your career and business goals.

Every year, the average American purchases approximately 68 items of clothing, but most of those items go unworn or are only lightly used. For many people, resale shops are the perfect solution: A meeting of valuable items and bargain prices. You can benefit from a brand clients trust for beautifully curated inventory and an upscale shopping experience that doesn’t compromise on the valuable money-saving nature of resale shopping.
