About Us


Plato's Closet at Northgate Mall & Plato's Closet near Southpoint Mall. We are open daily 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 refresh our inventory daily by adding 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 in your items freshly laundered in a sturdy container (laundry baskets, reusable shopping bags, etc.). One of our certified buyers will sort through your items looking for trendy teen styles that have been in stores the past 6 to 12 months and that all items are free of holes and stains. Once your items have been sorted, they will be entered into our computer system. All items are priced based on brand, style, and condition. We pay you 30-40% of what we are selling the items for! If you accept our quote, you will receive cash on the spot or you can trade!

What You Will Find:

Plato’s Closet offers a wide variety of styles and brands for teens and young adults for 50-70% 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 nike. Looking to be a trendsetter? We stock brands like urban outfitters, free people, anthropology and other boutique brands. We now take DESIGNER BAGS too!
