El Paso, TX—Aug 18, 2015—Local residents Kevin and Jessica Drennan are proud to announce the grand opening of their new resale franchise store, Uptown Cheapskate, on Thursday, August 27 at 4:00 pm. Unlike a traditional thrift store, this trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller, located at 2900 N Mesa in El Paso, pays shoppers cash for their secondhand clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.
The first 25 shoppers in line at the grand opening on Thursday will receive a free burger at Zeke’s Sports Bar, and grand opening celebrations will continue throughout the weekend. Uptown Cheapskate will be administering a grand opening contest through the store’s Instagram account, @uptown_elpaso, to give away 10 concert tickets for Purity Ring, and two winners will receive VIP block party passes for Neon Indian. On Saturday, Uptown Cheapskate will hold a drawing at 2:00 pm for mystery gift cards and a $250 shopping spree. Shoppers must be present to win the drawing prizes.
“We’re so excited to bring the Uptown Cheapskate concept to the El Paso area and offer an affordable way to dress fashionably,” said Kevin Drennan. “We love that our store provides our customers a way to earn cash for the clothes they no longer wear, and find great deals on styles they love all in one place. This is recycling at its best,” 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. Customers will then be able to come in and 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.
