About Us

Plato’s Closet Cary 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 restocking hundreds of new pieces to keep each visit a new shopping experience.



Bring your gently used items freshly laundered and neatly folded in a reusable container (canvas shopping bag, box, basket, or storage bin). Preferably not on hangers, in trash bags, or loose. (We don't want to misplace your items). We will process your items on a first-come first-served basis. We strive to have every customer in and out in under 20 minutes. 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. There is no obligation to accept the offer. We will pay cash on the spot or offer a trade if you want to shop. (Trading saves you on sales tax)
