Plato’s Closet

Started in 1998 in Columbus, Ohio and franchised in 1999, Plato’s closet buys and re-sells used clothing (and some other items like games, CDs, accessories, and some home decor products). The idea is to make fashion affordable for everyone, dealing only in on-trend products that appeal to the teen and young adult market. This unique take on recycling was the brainchild of founders Dennis and Lynn Blum, who enlisted the help of their teenage son in naming the brand.
