Trendy Clothing Franchises

Have you ever considered how self-fulfilling running a clothing franchise could be? There are many advantages to opening a franchise in the fashion and apparel industry. Franchisees have the opportunity to interact directly with people and express their fashion talents by selecting clothing and styling clients. In addition, the industry provides flexibility to be creative and continuously innovate in order to keep up with the trends.

If you are considering investing in a retail clothing franchise, the list of categories seem endless and selecting the right one can be intimidating. Although all come with related advantages and benefits, there is one category that is standing out among the rest. Consignment, or second-hand, shops and stores that carry deeply discounted merchandise are hot and beginning to pop up everywhere. Here’s why.

Trends have indicated that consumers are becoming savvier about how they spend their money. Technology has made obtaining special promotions and comparing prices much easier. Finding a good bargain is becoming more of an expectation among shoppers. However, people are not willing to compromise by purchasing clothing of less quality. Consignment and discount shops are taking off because they have the ability to offer the paradox of more for less.

Second-hand stores initiate a unique exchange which allows consumers to trade in their gently used clothing for a percentage of the selling price. This concept enables customers to reap the benefits of name brand fashions, without having the high markup prices, such as mall retail stores.

Successful second-hand clothing franchises include Plato’s Closet, which offers a wide selection of trendy, teenage girl styles, and Uptown Cheapskate, an upscale, young adult clothing, shoes and accessories store. Both stores only accept clothing in good condition and right on par with the latest styles, making it an ideal place for young adults to find desirable clothes for a bargain.

An up and coming business opportunity that offers clothes at a discounted rate is $10 Clothing Stores. This store carries trendy, women’s apparel for only $10 and under. Merchandise is hand selected by closeout wholesalers and importers and prices are then negotiated for as low as possible. Although not a franchise, store owners possess 100% control over every decision involving the store. The target market is pleased with the variety and quality and thrilled about purchasing merchandise that is always on sale.
