MORGANTOWN, WV- Co-owners, Bridget Moreland and Gail Knotts, are thrilled to open the first Uptown Cheapskate in West Virginia. The mother-daughter duo spent several years researching the right location. They knew Morgantown, a small college town, would be a perfect place for Uptown Cheapskate and their families.
There has been great support from the residents of Morgantown as well as the surrounding areas, and the excitement continues to build for opening day. The Grand Opening will begin Thursday, April 26th and doors will open at 4PM. The Chamber of Commerce will be present for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
This trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 5001 Mid Atlantic Dr. in Morgantown, pays shoppers cash for their trendy clothes, shoes and apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices. In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the new Uptown Cheapskate store also offers a variety of new products, including jewelry and assorted apparel.
For several weeks, the store has been open to the public to purchase customers’ gently used fashions, filling the racks in preparation for the Grand Opening. Customers will be able to come in and shop brand name designer clothing and accessories for up to 70 percent less than retail beginning Thursday, April 26th. Uptown Cheapskate will continue to pay customers cash on the spot or 25 percent more in store credit for their gently used fashions and brands.
Bridget and her husband, Aaron have relocated to Morgantown and look forward to living closer to family. Gail and Barry raised their family in Ridgeley, West Virginia where they ran a successful construction business. This dynamic family team comes from a wide variety of entrepreneurs and believe with their combined personalities, skillset and experience, their store will be a great success.
