Local parents now have a place that not only puts cash back into their pockets, but sells gently-used children’s clothes, toys, equipment and more for less! A favorite with families, the new Once Upon A Child® in San Mateo recently opened at: 1878 S. Norfolk Street.
Once Upon A Child is part of a unique national recycling retail chain that specializes in merchandise for infants to pre-teens. In anticipation of its grand opening, the new location is interested in buying quality, gently-used children’s apparel, books, baby equipment and furniture, and more.
“Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market,” said Megan Dillon, who owns the new Once Upon A Child in San Mateo. “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.”
Unlike a typical consignment store, Once Upon A Child does not require appointments and pays cash 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 or retrofitted items, immediately pulling all recalled products from shelves and making sure all items purchased are safety-checked to meet current standards.
