About the Business
Back on the Rack Ladies Upscale Consignment first opened in 2012. The store won 1st place in Charlotte Sunâ€™s Readerâ€™s Choice Award for 2013 and 2014 and Harbor Styleâ€™s Harborâ€™s Hottest for 2014 and 2015. Located at 208 Tamiami Trail in Punta Gorda, at the corner of N. Hwy 41 and Marion Avenue, it is a favorite of both downtown and area shoppers. Drive North on 41 before crossing the bridge to Port Charlotte and you pass Back on the Rack. The shop was sold to the current owner in mid-2015.
Back on the Rack carries upscale and casual womenâ€™s clothing with an impressive list of designer labels. Popular Back on the Rack labels include Chicos, White House/Black Market, Jones New York, Ann Taylor, Dana Buchman, St. John, Christian Dior, Anne Klein, Calvin Klein, Talbotâ€™s, and many, many more! Every item that is consigned with the store is scrutinized to ensure it has absolutely no stains, tears, or defects. You can shop comfortably knowing the clothing is clean, pressed and ready to be taken home and loved.
