Clothes Mentor Tequesta Opens First Store In Palm Beach County

By SouthFloridaReporter.com, Oct. 27, 2015 – Most women will agree that they have hidden secrets in their closets-clothes and shoes that they no longer wear for a multitude of reasons. Eventually, the clothes get relegated to the back of the closet never to be worn again.

Now, instead of hoping a consignment store will sell them or giving them away, there’s a new chain of re-sale clothing stores rapidly popping up across the country that pays you cash. Luckily, one is coming to Palm Beach County –Clothes Mentor Tequesta!

Jon and Tammy Pasqualone, longtime Hobe Sound residents, are the proud owners of Clothes Mentor Tequesta. Clothes Mentor is a national chain of women’s resale stores with over 130 locations, including 8 in Florida. Clothes Mentor Tequesta is the first Clothes Mentor in Palm Beach County.

The shopping revolution is about to begin!

What makes Clothes Mentor unique is that unlike consignment stores, where you may wait months for a check, Clothes Mentor Tequesta pays cash for gently used name brand fashions, shoes, handbags and accessories that they buy.

The store is now in its “open to buy “mode. Once the store is fully stocked, customers will be able to shop for name brand clothing at a fraction of mall prices.

Cash Paid for Used Brand Name Clothes, Accessories and Shoes

Since September, Clothes Mentor Tequesta has been buying up women’s gently used and new clothes for cash, in preparation for the store’s Grand Opening. The store will offer stylish women’s apparel, shoes, purses and accessories for as much as 70 percent below mall prices. Clothes Mentor labels include top designer brand names like Lily Pulitzer, J. Crew, Cache, Chico’s, Dooney & Bourke, Coach, Ann Taylor, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, INC, Coldwater Creek and many, many more.

Clothes Mentor Tequesta buys women’s items that are clean, in style and in excellent condition. “We will only sell great items that have been carefully inspected for quality and perfection,” Tammy stated. “Once we get the inventory, it is placed on the selling floor right away at dramatically discounted prices,” she added.

According to the Pasqualones, the 3300 square foot store plans to have a Grand Opening in mid-November, 2015.

Women’s resale chain re-defines second hand shopping

“On any given day we will have over 8,000 items of merchandise on our racks,” Jon said. “All day, every day in our store, we will pay cash for brand-name, gently-used fashions and accessories. Unlike a consignment shop, we pay immediately for the items that we accept to sell in our store. Who doesn’t like some extra cash?” he said. “Our philosophy is, if you are not wearing it, get cash for it.”

12 -15 percent of Americans shop at resale and consignment stores

According to The Association of Resale Professionals and America’s Research Group about 12 to 15 percent of Americans shop at resale and consignment stores in a given year and has grown 7 percent a year for the past two years.

Clothes Mentor Tequesta has some guidelines for clothes that they buy:

1) Clothing should be current styles

2) Clean-no stains

3) Must not smell of smoke

4) No hangers

5) Freshly laundered or folded in a bag or basket
