Frequently Asked Questions
-Do you buy clothing out-right?
On Friday's from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm we offer something called Fast Cash Friday. On these days we will purchase junior's and young men's clothing (i.e. Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, etc.). The items need to be in like new condition, and we will need to be able to take at least 10 pieces in order to make a purchase.
NOTE: during the summer months, Fast Cash Friday is by appointment only.
-What if I buy something and it doesn't fit when I get home? Do you take returns?
We have a 24-hour "On Approval" option available. If you don't have time to try something on, or you are buying it for someone else, just ask for an "On Approval" receipt at the register. With this receipt, you may return the item within 24 HOURS for a refund. Please treat the item with care as we cannot refund money for items that have been damaged in any way.

There is no limit to the number of items you can bring in, but if you have more than 30 items please call and schedule an appointment.

Your items will be inspected and any items that are unacceptable will be set aside for you to pick up. We ask that you check back a week after you bring in your items to pick any unaccepted items up. If these items are not picked up one to two weeks after that, they will be forfeited to the store.

-Who sets the price for my items?
Price is very important. if priced too high, items won't sell. If priced too low, it is unfair to the consignor. We set the price using information you, the consignor, can provide, such as original cost, age, history, etc. and combine that with our experience, considering style, size, and customer demand. If you have an item that you want a specific price for, please let us know when you bring the item in for consignment.

Your items remain on the sales floor for 90 days. If you want your unsold items back, please pick them up within 95 days or your items will be forfeited to Upscale Resale.

Yes. Prices are reduced every 30 days. Also, there may be sales or coupons at Upscale Resale's discretion. You will receive 40% of the actual selling price before sales tax and buyer's fees.
