BizLook: Clothes Mentor
The fashion industry has changed drastically in the past year. But Clothes Mentor’s mission remains the same – to provide Edmond women with top-quality, affordable, and beautiful wardrobe options for every need.
Fashions for Changing Times
“People are becoming aware that cheaper fast fashion is not enduring,” says owner Melanie Harris. “They want to invest in high-quality items that will last.” Comfortable, Zoom-friendly styles are in demand, and so is athletic wear.
You’ll never find lower-end brands or outdated styles at Clothes Mentor. The store carries only recent clothing items from premium labels, as well as a rich variety of designer accessories.
For women who want to sell their clothing and accessories, Clothes Mentor pays cash on the spot. Clothing items must be less than three years old. “All our merchandise comes from local residents,” says Melanie. “We don’t import anything.”
Low-Contact Shopping Options
Like many businesses, Clothes Mentor has increased its online presence. They’re part of a virtual network of more than 80 Clothes Mentor franchises. Online shoppers have the satisfaction of knowing their purchases promote sustainability and support small, local businesses.
For those who prefer to shop in person, Clothes Mentor follows all local and state COVID-19 safety regulations. Their popular personal shopper program is a great option for anyone who needs to limit their time in the store. A shopper chooses items based on the customer’s preferences and budget. “All they have to do is come in and try on,” says Melanie. The program is free for all customers.
“We’re not driving trends based on platform and runway fashions,” says Melanie. “We’re focused on meeting the needs of local customers.”
