Clothes Mentor, a resale store for women, has opened in Central Park between DSW and the Navy Federal Credit Union.

Unlike a consignment shop, it pays cash for clothing, shoes, jewelry and designer handbags that were selling in stores up to two years ago.

The brands that it seeks include Ann Taylor, Banana Republic and Coldwater Creek. And the amount paid is based on the brand name, condition, style and current demand.
