Tower Park Real Estate is pleased to announce the Grand Re-Opening of Clothes Mentor!

Their new store location, at 12229 Jefferson Avenue, Suite 600, is in the Jefferson Greene Shopping Center with co-tenants Once Upon a Child and Plato’s Closet.  The Ribbon Cutting ceremony will take place on Friday, October 20, 2017 at 10:00am The first 20 people in line that day will get a Golden Ticket for $20 off your purchase! You can also register for door prizes, including: a Kindle Fire, and gift cards ranging from $20-100!

Clothes Mentor’s philosophy differs from traditional consignment stores by paying cash on the spot or providing store credit for your clothing in sizes 0 to 26, petites and maternity. The award for “Best Overall Consignment” store has been presented to Clothes Mentor all five years they have been in business, from Coastal Virginia Magazine. “We love providing women with excellent, brand name quality at a fraction of the cost of retail,” says Traci Bunn Powers, one of the owners.

Although the store is a national brand, it is owned and operated locally by sisters Lori Janke and Traci Bunn Powers who are Newport News natives.  Find out more at:


Michael Shapiro, Principal Broker, of Tower Park Real Estate represented the tenant in finding their original stores, and their move to a new and more visible location.


Tower Park Real Estate provides commercial sales and leasing services to shopping centers, office parks, flex office properties, and undeveloped land on the Virginia Peninsula and Gloucester County, Virginia.
