Company Details
Description

Children's Orchard has completely reinvented kid's resale stores. Featuring a beautiful new store design, we pay our customers CASH on the spot, right over the counter, to purchase their better brand clothing, toys and equipment. We then resell those clean, in style, great condition items for about 1/3 of what they sold for new. While providing mom's with the very best value on the hottest 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. The Top 25% of stores saw an Average Sales Revenue of $508,823 in 2016 (see Item19 in FDD).
