TAMPA PALMS, Florida — Trendy resale is now available in Tampa Palms with Uptown Cheapskate, an exciting new store that will host all interested customers for activities, giveaways, and treasure hunt-style shopping at its grand opening on Nov. 8 at 4 p.m.

Located at 16031 Tampa Palms Boulevard West near Publix, this Uptown Cheapskate store is 4,500 square feet of trendy clothes, shoes, and accessories at up to 80 percent off mall prices. Customers will recognize brand names that Uptown Cheapskate carries such as: Free People, Urban Outfitters, Madewell and Lululemon.

The grand opening celebration has been a long time coming — it’s common practice for Uptown Cheapskate franchise stores to first have an “open to buy” period where members of the public, as well as vendors, can sell used clothes for cash or store credit. The store is now stocked and ready for business.

For owner Amber Watt, overseeing the store operations is an exciting career change. “This job is just plain fun,” says Watt, who comes from a background in engineering. She believes wholeheartedly in bringing good fashion resale options to the people of Tampa. “There are so many ways to express your personality through fashion.”

Watt and her staff promise a celebration not to be missed with the Grand Opening, which is actually a multi-day event. Customers in attendance can enter giveaways and contests, including the chance to win free clothes for up to a year. On top of that, with every purchase during Grand Opening weekend, customers will walk away with a mystery gift card worth up to $50.

If that’s not enough, customers will also get to party with a live DJ the night of Nov. 8, and the first 40 customers in line will be entered to win a pizza from local favorite Cappys.

That community is at the heart of the new store. Most of the staff members are local students, and Watt has personally become familiar with many from the community in recent months. “It’s one of the most attractive places to live in the United States,” says Watt, who is excited to offer those living in this beautiful community the choice to dress their best without breaking the bank, and even earning money in the process.

ST. PETERS, Missouri — Resale shopping is more than a trend; it’s the intersection of retail and affordable fashion. Trendy resale is now available in St. Peters with Uptown Cheapskate, an exciting new store that will host all interested customers for activities, giveaways, and treasure hunt-style shopping at its grand opening on Sept. 27 at 4 p.m.

Located at 5236 I-70 North Outer Road in the Shoppes at Mid Rivers, this UC store is 3,500 square feet of trendy clothes, shoes, and accessories at up to 80 percent off mall prices. Customers will recognize brand names that UC carries such as: Free People, Urban Outfitters, Madewell and Lululemon.

The grand opening celebration has been a long time coming — it’s common practice for UC franchise stores to first have an “open to buy” period where members of the public, as well as vendors, can sell used clothes for cash or store credit. The store is now stocked and ready for business.

For owners Natalie and Lyle Armstrong, running the store operations is no new venture. This marks their third UC store; they know what it takes to run a franchise in a time when customers shop brands that align with their personal beliefs. “Our concept caters to so many people,” said Natalie. “Those who love going green, those that are value-minded shoppers and those who love staying trendy.”

The Armstrongs promise a celebration not to be missed with their grand opening, which is actually a multi-day event. Giveaways and certain shopping deals will only apply the weekend of Sept. 27-30. “We promise you won’t be disappointed,” said Natalie, “We have been working really hard to fill our racks with fabulous things so that the St. Peters community can experience what Uptown Cheapskate has to offer.”

That community is at the heart of the new store. Most of the staff members are local, and the Armstrongs have personally become familiar with many from the community in recent months. About the town, Natalie said this: “We have enjoyed working with the city administrator all the way down to the locals who are supporting our business. We also love and appreciate the hometown feel this city offers. St. Peters needs a great resale concept and we’re glad to be it.”

HILLIARD, OH—Nate and Rachael Blankenship and their team have worked tirelessly to open the doors of the second Uptown Cheapskate store in Ohio. They are excited to host their Grand Opening beginning Thursday, July 26, at 4 p.m. The festivities will last until Sunday evening at 6.

For first-time customers to an Uptown Cheapskate store, Nate has a message for you. “When you walk into our Uptown Cheapskate in Hilliard, you will second guess yourself that what you are walking into is a resale store.” That’s a testament to the store itself, and to the way that the employees behind the scenes have prepared for you. “You will be greeted and assisted with any of your shopping needs by staff that are educated on the store and its products. The goal is for us to make ourselves available before your need of assistance arises.”

No doubt customers in the area will flock to the store for this unique shopping experience. Located at 5303 Westpointe Plaza just off I-70, this Uptown Cheapskate franchise serves large communities on the west side of Columbus. The best part is the Blankenships’ love for the community. “We are ultimately here to do good for the community of Hilliard, and in doing so provide a place where they can get the latest fashions at prices they can afford,” says Nate.

For the last few weeks, the store has been open for members of the public to sell their gently used clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories. Customers receive cash or store credit on the spot for brands like Michael Kors, Urban Outfiters, Anthropologie, J. Crew, and more.

During the Grand Opening, customers can shop for the first time for new and like-new items at up to 70 percent off retail prices. “The idea of recycling your gently used clothing for cash or 25 percent more in store credit lends itself to promoting an idea we can both do good for the environment, and benefit ourselves as well with some cash!” says Nate. And with school starting just around the corner, who couldn’t use a little more spending money and a fresh wardrobe?
