A trendy new clothing store is trying to bring outlet mall fashion to Marquette. PHAT closet is a resale store that opened up back in March. PHAT stands for Previously Owned Hip and Trendy. The store markets their clothing mostly to college age kids. Their goal is to bring mall brands to Marquette so people don't have to travel to Green Bay or Chicago to get them.
"What we do is we buy outright so people can come in, no appointment needed all day everyday and they just bring us their clothes and we give them two offers we give them a cash offer and an in store credit offer," PHAT Closet Employee Taylor Kulju said. "It's really nice you don't have to wait for anything, you don't have to wait for your clothes to sell we just buy them."
PHAT closet is open Monday through Saturday from 10AM until 8PM and Sunday from noon to 5PM. The store is located on U.S Highway 41 across from Dunham's and Big Lots.
