How did you get started?
In 2003, Johanna Zlenko moved to Santa Barbara. In her freshman year at school, she helped open a vintage shop called “The Closet”. Within months, Johanna took over ownership of the fledgling business. In 2008, The Closet opened a second location in Westlake Village, CA, about 60 miles south of Santa Barbara, in Ventura County. In 2009 The Closet began doing business under the name “The Closet Trading Company™. In 2023, The Closet Trading Co “ TCTC” now has 7 locations around the United States, with franchise opportunities now available.
What makes your site unique?
Compared to traditional online stores, online boutiques like TCTC offer a specialized shopping experience that helps promote loyalty and repeat clients. The Closet Trading Company offers on-trend contemporary clothing, shoes, and accessories for women from designer and premium labels, enabling our clients to access high-end fashion more sustainably and affordably. If for some reason a client is not absolutely in love with their item, TCTC will provide a full refund within 7 days of purchase. This return assurance can be added on at checkout through “Seel” for a small fee which makes us different from any other consignment store.
