A resale store plans to open its second Dallas location on Lowest Greenville.

Crossroads Trading Co., which has a store on Main Street in Deep Ellum, will open a store at 1924 Greenville Ave.

The thrift store will replace The Merchant, a stationery, gift shop and cafe that opened on Greenville Avenue in 2017. A sign in the store’s window says just ‘see you later’ and follow the company on Instagram for updates.

Crossroads Trading offers resale clothing for men and women. Neighbors can trade in their clothes, shoes, and accessories for cash or store credit.

It was founded in 1991 by Jerry Block and Chop Gerken and was one of the first companies to focus on used clothing as an alternative to traditional retail. Crossroads Trading has since expanded to over 30 locations in Oregon, Washington, California, Texas, Illinois and New York.

For areas the store hasn’t reached, Crossroads Trading allows residents to mail in the pieces they wish to sell.

Crossroads Trading adds another thrift store to the Lower Greenville area, joining Buffalo Exchange and Uptown Cheapskate. Jack Retro was in the neighborhood but closed in April.

the Lawyer has contacted Crossroads Trading for more information on the opening date and will update the story when a response is received.
