About Us

Plato's Closet buys and sells gently used teen and young adult style clothing and accessories that are current style, trendy, clean and in good condition. With no appointment needed, we buy every day and pay you cash on-the-spot for the items we can accept! We carry girls sizes 0 to 30 in bottoms and XXS to 6X in tops; and guys sizes 28 to 42 waist. XS-3X. Every Plato's Closet store is locally owned and operated!

We are a locally owned family company with 10 Once Upon a Child stores and 8 Plato's Closet stores, all in Cincinnati and Dayton. We have been in business for over 25 years and our goal is to give our customers a great place to sell what they are no longer wearing, and shop for what they want next!

Our Core Values:

Customer Service – our goal is to provide excellent customer service to all of our customers. We would not be here without you, and we appreciate you choosing to sell and shop with us.

The Concept – we know how expensive it is to keep up with the latest styles and trends. We are proud to offer teens and young adults a place to get cash for what they are no longer wearing, and shop for the latest styles and hottest brands (at a great price!)

Organized stores with Quality Inventory – we want you to enjoy shopping with us. Our racks will be sized, organized, and easy to shop. Our certified buyers check every item we buy - if something does not meet our quality standards, we don’t buy it.

Cash on the Spot – we buy 7 days a week, no appointment is needed. We buy all seasons, all the time. WE PROMISE TO HAVE A WAIT TIME OF 24 HOURS OR LESS.
