ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — After you've decluttered your wardrobe for the new year, why not sell your used clothes and make a little extra cash instead of throwing clothes away to clutter up a landfill?

Clothes Mentor in Anderson Township is a resell store, which means they buy gently used items and give you cash on the spot.
Since reopening in May after closing for the pandemic, Mary Kucynski, the store's manager, said Clothes Mentor has seen a surge in people buying and selling clothes. The store is buying, on average, between eight and nine items from a single seller.
The shop tries to stay current with their styles and what they offer and that means they are in need of cozy work-from-home clothes.
"We're looking for soft pants, joggers, casual sweaters and cardigans, trendy denim, ankle boots," Kucynski said. "It's that comfy, casual outlook that's everybody's sticking to. Definitely athletic wear."
If you sell items at Clothes Mentor in January, you will be entered into a raffle for a $50 store gift card. And if the store doesn't buy all your items, you can donate those items at the store to Matthew 25: Ministries, which comes by the store twice a week to pick up donated items.
