Local business owners in Roanoke, VA open teen fashion resale store

ROANOKE, VA. — Local business owner Mike Mabery and his business partner, Sam Savla are familiar with owning a franchise and are excited to enter the world of resale with Uptown Cheapskate. Their new store is located at 1411 Towne Square Blvd NW, in Roanoke. The Grand Opening will be Thursday, March 22nd at 4 PM. This trendy teen and young adult fashion reseller pays shoppers cash for their clothes, shoes and other apparel items and resells them at highly discounted prices.

Their store manager, Jolina Goad has been instrumental in getting the store ready and organized for the opening. With her passion for fashion and outgoing personality, she is a perfect fit for the Roanoke team! For several weeks, their team has been hard at work purchasing customers’ gently used fashions, filling the racks in preparation for the Grand Opening. Customers will then be able to come in and shop brand name and designer clothing and accessories at up to 70 percent less than retail.

Uptown Cheapskate focuses on buying current styles of apparel, shoes, and accessories that appeal to a wide range of teens and young adults. After the Grand Opening, Uptown Cheapskate will continue to pay customers cash on the spot or 25 percent more in store credit for their gently used items.

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the new Uptown Cheapskate store also offers many new products including jewelry and assorted apparel items.
