Once Upon A Child Opens Thursday

The new Once Upon A Child in Chattanooga opens Thursday. Located at 2288 Gunbarrel Road, the new Once Upon A Child is part of a 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 Colyn Shirley, who owns the new Once Upon A Child. “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 on the spot for items it purchases from consumers. At Once Upon A Child families are able to buy necessities for their children at a good value, and turn their gently-used items into cash, said officials.

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. 

For questions on the buying process or store hours, the new Once Upon A Child can be reached at 498-1719 or www.onceuponachildchattanooga.com.
