BLOOMINGTON — Once Upon a Child, a nationwide chain of resale shops offering kids' items, will open Sept. 26 at 105 Krispy Kreme Drive, Suite 2, Bloomington.
The franchise buys and sells gently used children's clothes, shoes, toys and baby furniture and equipment, offering merchandise for infants through pre-teens.
“Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market,” local owner Kristy Sieraski said in a statement. “I understand how expensive it is to raise children today and want to offer an affordable option for local families. 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.”
The store does not require appointments and pays on the spot for items it purchases from consumers. The store ensures that all products purchased and sold meet mandatory and voluntary safety standards, the statement said.
Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Call 309-808-2646 or visit https://onceuponachild.com/bloomington-il.
