Designer resale shop

A national women’s resale boutique has moved into the greater Rochester area with the recent opening of Clothes Mentor, 1180 S. Rochester Road, Rochester Hills. Headquartered in Minneapolis, the shops carry like-new designer clothing at up to 70 percent off of retail prices, with all apparel, shoes, jewelry and accessories in “gently-used” condition. The new location is the third to open in Michigan and the 146th in the country since 2006. “We’re excited to add Clothes Mentor of Rochester Hills to the family,” said Clothes Mentor Chief Operating Officer Chad Olsen. “We’ve had great success in Michigan with our stores in Novi and Portage, so we couldn’t be happier to see a third store open there.” Local owner Carolyn Web got into the resale shop business after leaving a pharmaceutical wholesaler as vice president of planning. The mother of three said she decided to leave the corporate word and explore entrepreneurship.
