Local Mother of Three Ready to Celebrate Grand Opening of New NTY Clothing Exchange and Children’s Orchard Stores July 26–29
(MINNETONKA, Minn.) – Children’s Orchard and NTY Clothing Exchange, NTY Franchise Company’s resale clothing franchise brands aimed at children, teenagers and young adults, will celebrate the grand opening of their new stores July 26 through 29. The grand opening events will feature food and prizes, mascot visits, a ribbon cutting and a celebration of the store’s new initiative with The Family Partnership, a non-profit helping local families in need through counseling, education and advocacy. Children’s Orchard and NTY Clothing Exchange will provide clothing, shoes and children’s items to The Family Partnership to aid the families they serve.
“Maple Grove is an excellent location for us to open our new resale brands aimed at helping children, teens and young adults find fashionable clothing and accessories at prices they can afford,” Chad Olson, COO of NTY Franchise Company said.
Franchise owner Erin Hente is excited to fill her new store, located at 13621-13625 Grove Drive in Maple Grove, with gently-used items they are buying, with cash on the spot, from locals. She looks forward to not only running her new stores as a family business; but supporting other families in the Maple Grove Community.
“It’s a family business, and not just for my family, but for all of the families in this community,” Erin explained. “I’ll be able to pay people cash on the spot for gently-used items they no longer wear, sell them great clothing and accessories for a fraction of their retail price and donate their unsellable items to an amazing local charity. My children and I are very excited to get started.”
Founded in 2006 by Ron Olson, NTY Franchise Company is the gold standard in resale franchising companies. NTY franchises four brands, all with a different focus: Clothes Mentor, Children’s Orchard, Device Pitstop, and NTY Clothing Exchange. The brands are all resale-based and cover women’s designer fashions, children’s apparel and accessories, electronic sales and repair, and clothing for teens and young adults. All of the resale franchise brands put great emphasis on buying high-quality, name-brand merchandise that is gently-used and in excellent condition. The stores are clean, bright and meticulously organized. And the very nature of resale keeps customers coming back. Inventory changes daily and prices average 70 percent less than the original retail price.
Resale apparel is enjoying a $20 billion boom that began during the great recession and continues today as consumers flock to stores like Children’s Orchard and NTY Clothing Exchange to buy and sell gently-used teen and young adult fashions. Now growing a whopping 24 times faster than retail, recent reports project that the resale apparel market will grow to more than $41 billion by 2022.

About Children’s Orchard
Children’s Orchard was purchased by NTY Franchise Company in 2014. There are over 35 stores nationwide. As a children’s resale store, it addresses an important need as kids outgrow their clothes faster than they can make a dent in wearing them out. This makes this store a growing necessity that will draw customers in. Something kids loved a month ago might not fit them at all now — and this is true of toys and equipment as well. With gently-used, high-quality apparel, toys, and equipment, Children’s Orchard is a great concept, a great need, and is a great opportunity for business owners in their community.
About NTY Clothing Exchange
One of the newer franchises started in 2014, NTY Clothing Exchange is just expanding to its fifth store in 2018. The franchise fills an important need that hasn’t been addressed in many communities: A high-end resale clothing store that buys and sells apparel and accessories just for teens and young adults, both male and female. Young adults and teens are often still students or just starting a new career, and they need to be able to change their style to fit their needs. All of this is done on a very limited budget. This limitation means a great franchise concept. The opportunity to grow as more people enter into this market is even bigger for the business owner.
