TEXARKANA, TX— (June 23, 2017) — A new Uptown Cheapskate store is now open at the Texarkana Pavilion next to Shoe Carnival. Owned and operated by local resident Lisa Snow, the store launched with a major Grand Opening event that brought many local businesses and residents together to celebrate a unique retail experience. Uptown Cheapskate features a full store of like-new name-brand women’s and men’s clothes at up to 90% off original prices. Not only can customers shop their favorite brands at steep discounts, but they can also recycle their own gently-used upscale items and receive cash on the spot.
Reflecting on the success of the store’s Grand Opening and its popularity with Texarkana shoppers, Lisa points to the strong involvement of the community as well as her commitment to excellent customer service:
“We have had so many wonderful people and businesses supporting our new store,” Lisa reflects. “Our Grand Opening featured a local radio station, delicious free gourmet popcorn from Pop Pop Shoppe, and fun giveaways from local restaurants like Raising Cane’s, Sweetcakes and McCallister’s.”
“Our staff sees customer service as an absolute priority, and that’s the big difference that will set us apart from other stores. We believe that good business starts with our attitude, and we bring that positive and helpful attitude to our store every day.”
Lisa has a background in retail sales, and is particularly experienced in fashion merchandising. With an all-star staff of savvy social media fashion consultants, the store executes a stylish experience both in-store and in on Facebook and Instagram. Teammates regularly post on social media about their newest arrivals, and are currently excited about their stock of kimonos, cold-shoulder dusters, and 4th of July tops and accessories.
“We are constantly receiving new amazing product, around 30 to 40 new items each day,” Lisa notes. A consistently fresh lineup of clothing is just one of the value propositions that drew Lisa to Uptown Cheapskate.
“My mother and I have always shopped resale stores. We liked to see who could get the best deal,” she remembers. “I fell in love with the Uptown Cheapskate concept because it makes incredible style affordable and available to the masses. We are able to sell name brand product for a quarter of the original price.”
