How To Find Coat And Clothing Hangers

Introduction

Clothing is expensive. Even cheap clothing is more expensive than it used to be. If you are going to spend the money on a good coat and nice clothing, it makes sense to take care of it and the easiest way to do that is to store it properly. Proper storage does not mean folding it up and throwing the clothing in a drawer; it means taking the time to properly hang your coat and clothing on hangers. Here are a few tips on how to find coat and clothing hangers to prolong the life of your wardrobe.

Step 1

Online Retailers

The easiest place today to find almost anything you need is to first go online. Several online stores include coat and clothing hangers as part of their regular inventory. You can choose to shop at an online store that specializes in coat and clothing hangers or just a regular online department store.

Step 2

Department Stores

The next time you are out doing your regular shopping, swing over to the household aisle and take a look at the coat and clothing hangers that the store offers. The majority of department stores will have a nice selection of different kinds of coat and clothing hangers to choose from at varying prices. The prices depend on quality and the quantity you need.

Step 3

Wholesale Suppliers

When you find that you need more than just a few coat and clothing hangers, going wholesale is the cheapest route. At a wholesaler, you can buy them in packs of a dozen or more, depending on your needs, at far lower prices than the majority of department and online stores. The easiest way to find a wholesaler close to you is to do a quick search online.

Step 4

Secondhand

Secondhand shops, rummage sales, yard sales and garage sales all are easy places to find coat and clothing hangers. Over the years, some families find themselves with an over accumulation of coat and clothing hangers and rather than throw them away will give them to second hand stores or offer them in community sales. Often they are offered for free.

Step 5

Clothing Stores

You cannot actually buy coat and clothing hangers from clothing stores, unless they sell specialized hangers. But instead of opting to leave the hanger at the store or throw it in the trash at home, keep the hangers that your clothing comes on. An expensive coat and someother items come with their own specialized hangers, usually with the brand name’s mark on it. If the hanger is not offered, make sure you ask. In most cases, the sales person is used to throwing coat and clothes hangers away that customers do not want because the store already has their own type they use on a regular basis.

Tips

Standard hangers work for most clothing, while coat hangers are thicker and support the weight of coats better.
Do not buy coat and clothing hangers that are too long; they will stretch out the shoulders.
Do not buy coat and clothing hangers that are too short; shoulders drape over the short arms and become disfigured.
