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.
