AUSTIN, TX—March 9, 2016—Local resident, Michele Bass, is excited to announce the grand opening of her first Kid to Kid store on Thursday, March 17, at 4 p.m. The grand opening will feature drawings and giveaways, and the opportunity for the public to have first access to thousands of hand-selected children’s items at huge discounts. Customers that RSVP to the store’s Facebook event will be entered to win a $50 shopping spree. Located at 5300 #102B (MoPac at 290) in Austin, the Kid to Kid franchise buys and sells new and gently used children’s apparel, toys, books, baby gear and maternity clothing.

For several weeks, the store has been open to purchase customers’ gently used items. After the grand opening, customers will be able to shop for new and like-new children’s items for up to 70 percent less than retail prices. The Kid to Kid store will continue to pay for second hand items by offering customers cash or 20 percent more in store credit.

“Our hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday,” Bass explained. “We pride ourselves in knowing that we make it easy for families to bring their items to sell to us. No appointment is necessary and we welcome anyone to sell anytime our store is open up to an hour before close.”

In addition to carrying hundreds of recycled items, the Kid to Kid store will also offer many new products including toys, shoes, hair bows and apparel.

Bass has always been interested in the idea of owning her own business. With a background in education and as a mother of a 3 year-old son, “Kid to Kid was an easy choice for me,” she said. Bass is excited to be a valuable resource to the south Austin community where families can repurpose and recycle their gently used clothes, toys, baby equipment and accessories. Bass said that with the help of the established franchise model, “Kid to Kid is able to take children’s resale stores to another level that I have not seen before in other similar resale stores.”
