Clothes Mentor Opens First Location in Rochester Hills, Michigan
Top-Performing Women’s Resale Clothing Franchise Expecting a Big 2018
April 11, 2018 // Franchising.com // MINNETONKA, Minn. - Clothes Mentor, a national women’s resale clothing franchise headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, recently opened their third location in Michigan and 146th store in the United States, continuing their successful run of new store openings since the brand launched in 2006.
Clothes Mentor of Rochester Hills, Michigan (1180 S. Rochester Rd, Rochester Hills, MI 48307) opened for business on March 15, 2018, in a 3,975-square-foot location with 2,987 square feet of selling space.
“We’re excited to add Clothes Mentor of Rochester Hills, Michigan, to the family,” Chad Olson, Chief Operating Officer of Clothes Mentor’s parent firm, NTY Franchise Company, said. “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.”
Franchise owner Carolyn Webb was a corporate vice president of strategic planning for a pharmaceutical wholesale company who decided the time was right for a change. The mother of three knew she wouldn’t be in her corporate job forever, so decided the time was right to explore entrepreneurship.
“Corporate America will quickly hire people half your age at half your salary to do your job, so rather than wait for that to happen, I took charge of my destiny and became a small business owner,” she said.

Since 2017, Clothes Mentor has successfully recycled more than 42 million items of mall-brand and designer clothing and paid women more than $180 million for their gently-used items.
