Women's resale apparel stores becoming popular


Shopping for the fall may be a little easier this year.

The trend of resale versus retail is catching on, according to a nationwide company with a Woodbury franchise.

Clothes Mentor, a store in Woodbury that buys and sells brand-name women's apparel, is seeing a jump in sales figures.

Owner of the local location Mark Hoon said the store saw a 15 percent jump over the last year. The store opened in 2010.
