America's first national resale chain for adult women, Clothes Mentor, opened June 28 at 11800 S. Cleveland Ave., between Boy Scout Drive and College Parkway, in Fort Myers.
There's another Clothes Mentor in Palm Harbor, Fla., and 80 from coast-to-coast by year end.
Clothes Mentor offers style, sophistication and quality. Most items originate from better specialty or department stores. Everything is like-new, clean and top quality. Clothing is organized and displayed beautifully in a fine retail environment.
The Clothes Mentor opening is celebrated by, from left, Cape Coral's Pam and Glenn Shoffler, manager Kristi Ralton and Don and Jan Held.
"We're a totally different form of shopping," said store co-owners Don and Jan Held and Glenn and Pam Shoffler. "We fit the growing style, brand and value consciousness of Southwest Florida women who love fashion and adore 70 percent savings. Equally important, customers selling us quality, good-condition merchandise receive immediate cash, not a consignment form." Clothes Mentor carries desirable brands for adult women. It stocks petites, misses, plus sizes and maternity wear. There's a huge selection with bright lights, sophisticated displays and private fitting rooms with three-way mirrors. All major credit cards are accepted.
Clothes Mentor helps Southwest Florida women update their wardrobes with better-brand apparel and accessories that are stylish, in good condition and at dramatic savings. They carry business, casual, smart and sophisticated apparel in sizes 0 to 26 or 4x. There's a large selection of popular brands. The chain carries tops and bottoms, jeans, suits, career separates, coats and jackets, purses, designer handbags, shoes, jewelry, belts, scarves and other accessories.
Clothes Mentor buys good-condition clothing from neighbors and is picky about quality. Items must be current style, freshly laundered and free of stains, fading, missing buttons or broken zippers. Clothing can be brought in any time, without an appointment. If accepted, customers receive cash on the spot - unlike consignment stores which only pay when the item sells.
Co-owners Don and Jan Held and Glenn and Pam Shoffler offer Clothes Mentor to savvy, brand-conscious adult women.
