Every year, the average American purchases approximately 68 items of clothing, but most of those items go unworn or are only lightly used. For many people, resale shops are the perfect solution: A meeting of valuable items and bargain prices. You can benefit from a brand clients trust for beautifully curated inventory and an upscale shopping experience that doesn’t compromise on the valuable money-saving nature of resale shopping.


Our owners have a business that feels more like a boutique than a thrift store. Becoming a franchise owner at Uptown Cheapskate is an opportunity to follow a proven business model and gain access to a wide range of invaluable resources and support services while still maintaining the entrepreneurial spirit and lifestyle that comes with building your own a small business.

A Day In the Life of a Uptown Cheapskate Franchise Owner

“People like the fact that we’re not putting new items into the environment, and of course, they like the fact that they’re getting a good deal. We have about 700-800 people every week that shop with us. It’s been extremely rewarding, both personally and financially, and it’s a very fun business to own.”
