Company Details
Description

Children's Orchard has completely reinvented kid's resale stores. Our stores pay our customers CASH on-the-spot, right over the counter, to purchase their better brand name clothing, accessories, toys and equipment. These beautifully designed stores then resell those clean, in-style, great condition items for about 1/4 to 1/3 of what they sold for at mall stores. While providing mom's with the very best value on the hottest, most in-demand items, Children's Orchard store owners have achieved over 60% gross profit margins... that’s more than double that of traditional specialty retailers.
