About Us | Plato's Closet Markham, ON

WE'RE LIKE YOU. We love fashion and looking for the best finds for a great deal. We're environmentally conscious and we believe in giving clothes and accessories a second life, preventing thousands of items from ending up in landfill. At the same time we give our customers an opportunity to own the hottest trends and brands for a fraction of their original price! 

WE'RE ALL ABOUT MARKHAM. We're right in your neighbourhood, and we love to come to schools and universities to talk about all the great things we're about: recycling, fashion, entrepreneurship, empowerment, environment, business, and customer service.

OUR INVENTORY CHANGES DAILY. Every time you come in you'll find new items on our floor. So, if you see something you love, snag it! It might not be there tomorrow. We're always putting out new items as well, so you're guaranteed to see great new things the next time you come and visit us.

We all do it. We all have those perfectly great items in our closet that we mean to wear, but every day we pass them by. We think 'this is still good, I shouldn't throw it out'. And NO, you shouldn't. Instead, you should bring it to our store and earn some cash for it! 

WE PAY CASH ON THE SPOT. We love your trendy and casual pre-loved items. Go through your closet and take a look at what you're not wearing. From clothes, handbags and backpacks, jewelry, hats, shoes, and even new beauty products and cosmetics, we will assess your items and pay you cash on the spot! We buy both men's and women's clothing, from sizes XXS to 4X! 

WE BUY ALL SEASONS ALL THE TIME. To keep our inventory consistent, we do buy clothes and accessories from all seasons, all year-round, while being selective with some styles when it it is off-season. To see what we're looking for, check out What We Buy and visit our Instagram for the most updated news and announcements! 

WE WISH WE COULD TAKE IT ALL. But we can't :( With trends coming and going every season, there are some styles that we may have to pass on because they don't fit our store's main demographic, which are teens & twenty-somethings. Some styles that we don't buy in are: children's clothing, maternity clothing, formal and business wear, and intimates. So please don't get discouraged if you bring us your great stuff and we happen to pass on it.  We also will pass on items that are overly loved (too worn) and/or damaged.
