TRAVERSE CITY – Local parents now have a place that not only puts cash back into their pockets, but sells gently-used children’s clothes, shoes, toys, equipment and more for less! A favorite with families, the new Once Upon A Child® in Traverse City opened Thursday, June 9.
Located at 2751 N US 31 S in Traverse City, the new Once Upon A Child is part of a unique national recycling retail chain that specializes in merchandise for infants to pre-teens. The store buys and sells quality, gently-used children’s apparel, shoes, books, baby equipment and furniture, and more.
“Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market,” said Jen O’Brien, who owns the new Once Upon A Child Traverse City store. “By purchasing merchandise directly from consumers, we’re able to offer them lower prices and a great opportunity to receive cash on the spot for items they may have otherwise simply given away.”
Unlike a typical consignment store, Once Upon A Child does not require appointments and pays on the spot for items it purchases from consumers. At Once Upon A Child families are able to buy necessities for their children at great values, and turn their gently-used items into cash.
In addition, Once Upon A Child ensures that all products purchased and sold meet mandatory and voluntary safety standards. Staff members stay up-to-date on current recalled items, immediately pulling all recalled products from shelves and making sure all items purchased are safety-checked to meet current standards.
