Mother-Daughter Team Builds on Resale Business
(WALDORF, Maryland) A new family business is opening in Waldorf, Maryland as part of Clothes Mentor, a leading women’s resale clothing franchise. The Waldorf location is owned by mother-daughter team Beth Teas and Gwen Conger. The new Maryland location will host grand opening events all weekend long from Thursday, October 24 through Sunday, October 27 at 11487 Berry Road in Waldorf.
“At Clothes Mentor you can feel good about name brand fashion with access to name brand bags, apparel and shoes at resale prices,” said Teas. “Our inventory is growing everyday as we build up to our opening. We’re holding back some surprise items for our Grand Opening event including top designer items including Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, MCM, Lululemon, and more.”
Teas and Conger recognize that the Waldorf area has developed significantly over the past several years and would benefit from an upscale resale in their community. Teas and Conger have been filling their store with gently used clothes and accessories, making connections in the community, and gaining a following on social media. The Waldorf grand opening weekend will include giveaways and prizes each day.
“The community has been very welcoming. We are looking forward to our grand opening weekend,” said Teas. “I am excited to be able to have something that I can call my own.”

The inventory comes from the same customers who shop in the store, and sellers are offered cash on-the-spot or credit toward a new purchase. With stores throughout the United States, each store serves its local community in both buying and selling gently-used, designer clothing, shoes, boots, handbags, jewelry, and other accessories.
About Children’s Orchard:
Children’s Orchard was purchased by NTY Franchise Company in 2014. There are over 24 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 Device PitStop:
Device Pitstop is a tech resale franchise that buys, sells, trades, repairs and upgrades computers and mobile electronic devices. Their “gently-used,” refurbished, or repaired devices are sold at low prices for top quality gear. All devices have gone through a 21-point inspection and come with a 90-day warranty and theft check. Originally founded in Las Vegas in 2003 as Laptop Exchange, Device Pitstop was acquired by Minnetonka, MN-based NTY Franchise Company in January 2015. They currently have 10 locations open nationwide, with 3 in development.
About NTY Clothing Exchange:
One of the newer franchises started in 2014, NTY Clothing Exchange currently have 3 locations open nationwide. 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.
