You know those stores that look super intimidating to walk into, like you might leave your entire wallet behind or the sales people reak an air of unneccesary arrogance- no one really wants to shop at those places but often for style we will sacrifice lots of dollars and service.

I want to celebrate a store that is everything of what a retail experience should be- fun, inviting, fashion forward, affordable, excellent service with an eye for accessories, trends, always changing and earth friendly. I am talking about the one and only Plato's Closet at 204 West Broadway in Bismarck. Today is Plato's Closet 8th birthday in our great town and its an honor to invite the entire community to celebrate this fashion cornerstone.

Reasons why Plato's Closet is my favorite store:

1)No matter how much money I make - I can walk in and afford not just one purchase but lots of looks.

2)Easy way to clean out your closet and make some quick cash by selling the clothes you have fallen out of love with.

3)Styles galore- fun, sexy, preppy, punk, trendy, designer brands, rockstar, earthy, sophisticated, conservative, formal or beach.

4)The staff- always ready to help you, always in a great mood and it makes you want to continue to support their business.

5)I love the earth and more importantly for our future I want to be a smart consumer- so when I purchase gently used clothing I feel like that's a quick way to do good for the earth.

I hope you will join me in supporting the hard work of Plato's Closet today at 204 West Front Ave in Bismarck. Tell them HOT 975 sent you and cheers to living in STYLE!
