GRAND OPENING OF NEW UPTOWN CHEAPSKATE STORE IN SAINT JOSEPH, MISSOURI,

ST. JOSEPH, MO—May 23, 2016—Local residents Julie Woods and Brittney West, are excited to announce the grand opening of their new Uptown Cheapskate store, Thursday, June 2nd at 4 p.m. Starting Thursday, the grand opening will feature giveaways provided by the radio station K JO 105.5, snow cones by Kona Ice, and caricature drawings by a local cartoon artist Chris Fleck. Friday and Saturday of opening weekend, VDJ Z Man will be DJ-ing as shoppers come to get first pick of the clothing unveiling; those who come will get first pick of all the high-quality, low-priced name brands the store has been saving for this moment.

Located at 3120 Karnes Road in St. Joseph, for the last several weeks, the store has been stocking up buying gently-used clothing from the local community. At the grand opening, the store’s selection will be revealed and customers will be able to shop the new and like-new recycled name brand clothing and accessories at highly appealing prices. Uptown Cheapskate stores offer a variety of name brand clothing, and offers them at up to 90% off the price of original retail price. After grand opening day, Uptown Cheapskate St. Joseph will continue to pay community members cash for gently-used, in-style clothing, or offer 25 percent more in store credit for what they can buy.

As the newest owners of Uptown Cheapskate, Julie Woods and Brittney West are thrilled to bring this concept to St. Joseph.  The team first became interested in owning an Uptown Cheapskate store after working with other resale clothing brands in St. Joseph and surrounding areas for many years. They wanted to expand their business and after some research, the two chose to open an Uptown Cheapskate. They chose Uptown specifically because they felt that the Uptown Cheapskate brand offers a unique, upscale edge to resale shopping. “People are surprised that resale can be so chic,” says West. “Uptown offers a fresh take on used clothing, and we sell new items too! Overall it’s a great place for all kinds of shoppers—whether they are treasure-hunting for name brands, bargain shopping for current styles, or even just trying to make a little cash on extra clothes in their closets—we have something for everyone.”

American fork Uptown CheapskateAMERICAN FORK, UT—April 12, 2016—Business owners Kirk and Jennifer Johnson and Justin Crump are proud to announce the grand opening of their second resale franchise store, Uptown Cheapskate, on Thursday, April 21 at 4:00 pm. Unlike a traditional thrift store, this trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 62 N 600 W in American Fork, pays shoppers cash for their secondhand clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.

The grand opening celebrations will begin Thursday and continue throughout the weekend, featuring prize giveaways, local food trucks and the first chance to shop the store’s merchandise. Anyone who RSVPs to the store’s Facebook Event will be entered to win $50 in store credit, and customers who sell their gently used clothes to the store before the grand opening will be entered to win 4 Disneyland tickets.

“We are excited to bring an upscale resale clothing store to American Fork,” said Crump. “Our store has filled up with thousands of great pieces our customers have sold to us, and we hope to be their one stop shop for all their new and used treasures,” he said.

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 90 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.

Although this will be the first Uptown Cheapskate in Utah County, the Johnsons and Crumps are not new to owning a fashion resale store. “Clothing resale has become our passion after our Murray location opened in August of 2013. As that store has been thriving, we were eager to expand our business to the great city of American Fork,” said Crump. With the Murray store’s steady growth since opening, they are excited to apply the principles they’ve learned from their first store to build a successful business in American Fork right from the start.

    It’s exciting to see how popular thrift stores and used clothing are becoming. I love being able to make money from my old clothes. It just gives me room for more clothes!

  2. KRISTINORTHCUTT April 22, 2016

    It’s also very environmentally friendly. Energy and resources that would have been spent making new clothes, etc. Is saved. Hip hip hooray for reducing our carbon footprint so painlessly! You go, Uptown Cheapskate!

Trish and PeteBOARDMAN, OH—Local business owners Trish Couche and Pete Zinnicker will hold the Grand Opening of their store, Uptown Cheapskate, on Thursday, March 3rd . This contemporary teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 105 Boardman-Canfield Road in Boardman, pays shoppers cash for their clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at up to 90% off retail prices.

Trish Couche, originally from Boardman, has been looking for a new venture and decided to try owning her own business. Pete Zinnicker, from Cleveland, also wanted a change and so the couple has taken on the new store together. Trish chose to open an Uptown Cheapskate specifically because, after hearing about the franchise through a friend, she fell in love with the concept and the brand. More than your typical resale store, Uptown Cheapskate holds a brand that is “edgy, urban and in-style,” says Trish. Furthermore, Trish and Pete believe that there’s a desire within the community for a store like this, as they’ve received a lot of positive feedback from those selling to their store. “People are coming in to sell to us and they are excited about it. You can tell by the way they are talking that they absolutely love having a new store like this in their neighborhood.” Which is no surprise. The buy, sell, trade concept that Uptown Cheapskate offers is a win-win scenario. Members in the community can declutter their closets and earn cash on the spot, while style-hunters can find designer clothing at up to 90 percent less than retail.

For several weeks, the store has been buying clothes and accessories in preparation for opening day, which will be Thursday, March 3, at 4 pm. Those who attend the Grand Opening weekend will get the first pick of Uptown Cheapskate Boardman’s freshly revealed selection of items. Plus, attendees may receive food vouchers, mystery gift cards for shoppers, and ticket giveaways to Carrie Underwood, Fetty Wap, and Cirque du Soleil. There will be DJed music and remotes from stations Hot 101, Friday 95.9 and 105.1—who will also be giving away concert tickets.

For more information on how you can attend this event, find Uptown Cheapskate (Boardman) on Facebook or @uptown_ohio on Instagram. For frequent updates, pictures and happenings in the store, visit their store website or email.
