What's in a Name?
The first Plato's Closet store was opened in Columbus, Ohio by founders Lynn and Dennis Blum. Experienced business owners who have a long history of creative recycling success! They turned to their teenage son to help create the name for the business. While doing research for a school project, the Blums' son gained much knowledge and respect for the pioneering Greek philosopher, Plato. His theories of reusing and preservation appeared to be a good parallel to his parents' unique idea of recycling. Closet was a natural fit as it relates perfectly to every teen's room and their craze for clothing.
