Uptown Cheapskate is more than a clothing franchise. It is an attitude, a personality, and an art form. Uptown Cheapskate empowers individuals to express themselves using brand name fashions and modern style without the typical price tag. The clothing concept is simple really: we buy and sell your favorite brands at prices that everyone can get excited about. We’re not trying to change the world; just offer an exciting new way to shop it.
Uptown Cheapskate is a sister company of Kid to Kid an award winning children's product franchise with over 16 years of experience in the resale industry and more than 80 stores in the US and Europe. we've carefully studied the teen/young adult segment, identified its needs, and have the tools, know-how, and resources to meet the needs of our clients and customers.
Generation Y consumers have rich tastes and preferences in addition to being sophisticated and brand conscious that must be satisfied as quickly as possible. Since their expendable income is limited, they are forced to be value-minded. Many are world wise and share a general concern for the earth and the future and tend to favor retail concepts that share their concerns.
Studies show that Uptown Cheapskate's target demographic, Generation Y, is poised to rival the Baby Boomers in terms of sheer economic impact.

During your time with us we prepare you to meet the challenges of business ownership. You will get hands-on training in how to identify and buy fashionable clothing, merchandise them, attract and retain customers and employees, and account for your money (and everything in between). We also require that you go through an internship program at another Uptown Cheapskate store to receive more hands on training.
