SAN MARCOS, TX—March 20, 2018—Business owner Lurinda Berlin, is proud to announce the grand opening of her second resale franchise store, Uptown Cheapskate, the weekend of Thursday, March 22nd. Unlike a traditional thrift store, this trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 1504 Aquarena Spring Drive in San Marcos, pays shoppers cash for their secondhand clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.

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. During and after the grand opening, customers will be able to shop brand name and designer clothing and accessories at up to 70 percent less than retail.

Uptown Cheapskate focuses on buying current styles of apparel, shoes and accessories that appeal to a wide range of teens and young adults. After the grand opening, Uptown Cheapskate will continue to pay customers cash or in-store credit for their gently used items.

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the new Uptown Cheapskate store will also offer many new products including jewelry, shoes and assorted clothing items. With stores in Austin and now San Marcos, Lurinda, shares how she feels about opening her second Uptown Cheapskate store.

“We have learned a great deal in the last 4 years and still feel that we’re offering a valuable service to the communities we serve by being a zero waste recycling company that’s also so much fun to shop and offers big savings all rolled into one.  We feel better than ever about repurposing the Uptown way.”
