We carry newborn to a children's size 16. If you have teenagers... you'll want to visit our Plato's Closet locations,



Our stores are full of values and unbelievably low prices... and that's good because kids outgrow their clothes SO fast. As a parent, why buy new when gently used will do...why pay full price for clothes that will only be worn a few months. Come into our stores and experience our WOW factor! You'll never go back to buying new full price clothes again.

The Crest Hill store, 2108 Plainfield Rd, Crest Hill, is over 7,000 sq ft, very spacious and offers customers a huge selection of quality gently used clothes, baby gear, furniture and toys. In addition, choose from more than 15 styles of new cribs in about every color or finish you can imagine. We also carry crib bedding and mattresses all at competitive prices.

The Orland Park store, 9520 159th St, Orland Park, is 15,000 sq ft, huge location full of the top children's brands and is across the street from our Plato's Closet, which is geared for teens and twenties. So make it a day and stop by both locations!

The Crest Hill and Orland Park stores are about 20 minutes apart and are both worth visiting due to their uniqueness.
