What is Penn Closet?

Penn Closet was started in March of 2018 by Zoe Wsb(C '18) and Damien Koussis(C '20). Founded on the principles of "reduce, reuse, recycle," Penn Closet helps divert perfectly usable items from landfills while encouraging students to think differently about consumerism and waste.

We are a student-run thrift store, and our mission is to foster an economy of reuse and shared resources, as well as provide everyday essentials to students at a lower cost. We accept donations in the bin in front of our store 24/7 so come buy and drop off your gently used clothes!
