More than 20 years ago, The Clothes Horse opened shop near the University of Oregon campus. But earlier this month, the store opened its doors at a new location.
Co-owner Ann Hathway says the university area has served them well for the last two decades, but it was time to move. She says the lack of parking and business when students aren’t around made it difficult at times. Hathway says the new location on the corner of 13th and Pearl gives The Clothes Horse what it’s always needed and more.
“We have three sides of windows. We have parking. We have our own little lew, and we have four dressing rooms instead of two. I think we’re much more visible because we’re on a corner,” Hathaway said.
Hathway says with the new space she hopes the store will continue to grow and more clothing resale enthusiasts will stop by.
