About Us


Plato's Closet at Northgate Mall & Plato's Closet at Southpoint Mall. We are open to BUY & SELL your clothing, accessories and more!

Plato’s Closet Durham is a locally owned and operated franchise committed to all aspects of recycling while simultaneously offering trendy styles of clothing and accessories for up to 70% off mall prices.  We pay cash on the spot for gently used trendy teen and young adult clothing and accessories for both guys and girls.  We refreshen our inventory daily by restocking hundreds of new pieces to keep each visit a new shopping experience. 

How it works:

All of our items are processed on a first come first serve basis (no appointment is necessary!).  Bring your items freshly laundered in some type of container (trash bag, basket, etc.). One of our certified buyers will sort through your items looking for trendy items that have been in the stores less than 18 months ago free of damage or wear.  Once your items have been sorted, they will be entered into our computer system.  All items are priced based on brand, style, and condition.  If you accept our price quote, you will receive cash on the spot.

Plato’s Closet offers a wide variety of styles and brands for teens and young adults for 50-75% less than regular retail.  Whether you’re after name brands or fashion forward style, we’ve got it all!  Find your favorite mall brands like American Eagle, Forever 21, Hollister, Polo and Buckle.  Looking to be a trendsetter? We stock brands like Urban Outfitters, Free People, Seven for all of Mankind, Anthropology and other boutique brands.
