New Store in the Hood Uptown Cheapskate
According to their website:
"Uptown Cheapskate is more than a fashion exchange concept. It is an attitude, a personality, and an art form. Uptown Cheapskate empowers individuals to express themselves using brand name fashions and modern style without the typical price tag. The concept is simple really: we buy and sell your favorite brands at prices that everyone can get excited about. We’re not trying to change the world; just offer an exciting new way to shop it."
I am happy to have a NON chain clothing store in the area(I love the Gateway but c'mon that can't be all there is--RIGHT?) esp in this economy!
I stopped in today and was pleasantly surprised. Brands from Diesel to Forever 21 graced the
stuffed racks. The staff was friendly, they have a great selection and all their inventory is in really great condition.
I found shoes, hats, purses, JEANS(tons--starting at 14.99) tops, dresses(7.99) for both girls and guys.
Def stop in, def buy and sell here and def use the free parking in the back or ride trax(it is just across the street) or if you are an Urbanite like me casually walk over when you get a free minute(yes I love it--I know you are jealous)
