Plato’s Closet opening on Albuquerque’s West Side

platosfromfilePlato’s Closet has something more in store for Albuquerque.

The resale chain specializing in clothing for teens and young adults will open a second Duke City location this summer at the intersection of Corrales Road and NM 528.

Plato’s Closet will take about 4,000 square feet at the Corrales Shopping Center, said NAI Maestas & Ward’s Brett Hills, who brokered the transaction.

Plato’s Closet will move into a space last used by Hawk’s Tri-Cycle. (Hawk’s will remain part of the Corrales Shopping Center, but in a different suite.)

Plato’s Closet franchisees Jon and Amanda Searcy brought the chain to Albuquerque about three years ago with a store at 5000 Cutler NE. Jon Searcy said any expansion had to occur near Cottonwood Mall due to the chain’s requirements that franchisees put stores within a mile of major shopping centers.

But that part of town made sense anyway, he said.

“The West Side is up and coming still, and growing and growing and growing. We thought it was a good opportunity to open a location on that side of town,” he said.

Searcy said the West Side store will likely open in May but will spend the first eight weeks just buying clothing, shoes and accessories to establish an inventory. He expects to start selling to customers by late July.
