Together, stores across the nation raised  money to build schools in impoverished countries. The daily newspaper mentioned the Boise Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate stores specifically, which  are owned by Boise resident Bill Long. His Boise stores contributed $6,860 to the cause.

Leading up to the event, Kid to Kid Tonawanda will be doing a “five days of prizes” event on their Facebook page starting August 20th.

Customers can view the full agenda on their Facebook event page.

The store has been stocking up, buying gently-used clothing, footwear, toys, baby equipment, and maternity products from the local community. At the grand opening, the store’s selection will be revealed and customers will be able to shop the new and like-new recycled name brand clothing and accessories at a great price.

Rochester-Yelena Golubkov

ROCHESTER, NY—June 23, 2016— Kid to Kid in Rochester, owned by local entrepreneur Lena Golubkov, was awarded Store of the Month for May 2016. Through this award, the Kid to Kid franchise recognizes outstanding achievement exhibited by one of its more than 100 children’s resale locations across the United States, Canada, and Portugal. Kid to Kid Rochester saw a sales increase of 13 percent in May, as well as 17 percent more customers.

When asked the secret to her success, Lena didn’t hesitate. “I just follow the franchise system,” she said. Each month she diligently reads the priorities recommended by BaseCamp Franchising, Kid to Kid’s parent company, and does her best to follow them. “It really works. My store isn’t perfect, but with BaseCamp’s help, I’m always improving.”

Having immigrated from Ukraine 26 years ago with $180 in her pocket and a desire for a better life, Lena’s is a true “American Dream” story. She worked any job she could find, from landscaping to cleaning, and eventually saved enough money to open a spa/salon. Eventually, the Kid to Kid franchise caught her eye. “I loved the concept, and after meeting Kid to Kid founders Brent and Shauna Sloan, I was really impressed with their intelligence and how they built the businesses. I knew I wanted to own a Kid to Kid.”

When she purchased her Rochester Kid to Kid location in 2011, she had developed the skills needed to provide outstanding customer service and a great product selection. “Lena is an outstanding example of tenacity in entrepreneurship, having overcome many personal challenges to create a better life through store ownership,” said Shauna Sloan.

“Owning a Kid to Kid is hard work, but I love it,” Lena said. The store saw huge gains in May by placing an added emphasis on organization and inventory. With an improved product selection, customers were able to find exactly what they wanted, resulting in higher sales for the store.

As much as Lena loves the business aspect of running her store, her favorite part of owning a Kid to Kid is the children. “I just love being able to watch them grow. It feels so rewarding to provide this amazing service to families so they can afford nice things and improve their lives,” she said.

Austin-CFAB-April 2016

AUSTIN, TX—May 12, 2016—The Kid to Kid Franchise System has awarded Store of the Month honors to Kid to Kid in north Austin, TX. This store was selected from over 100 Kid to Kid franchise stores in the US, Canada, and Portugal to win this special recognition based on store growth and noteworthy achievement.

Kid to Kid is a resale franchise that pays families cash for the nice things their kids have outgrown. The store sells these items as well as brand-new product at highly affordable prices. The Kid to Kid Austin store has been open since 2003 and has been well-received in the north Austin community.

In the month of April, Kid to Kid Austin was in the top ten for Kid to Kid sales. The store’s number of buys from community members increased significantly during the month as well.

One of the most notable achievements for the store during April was the impressive success of their charity-driven Fill-A-Bag Sale. The Kid to Kid Charity Fill-A-Bag Sale is a popular Kid to Kid sale nation-wide that is100% donation-based. Shoppers are asked to make a $15 or $10 donation in exchange for the purchase of a Charity Sale bag, which they can then stuff and fill with as much specially-marked product as possible. Customers who attend this sale can expect to walk away with an amazing haul of clothing, toys and more—and feel good about also making a contribution to charity.

Anna Kudlek—individual owner of Kid to Kid Austin—played a key role in the success of this most recent charity event. She invited members of the community, from organizations like Austin Restoration Ministries, to volunteer at the Charity Sale. Together, volunteers and Kid to Kid employees worked for three days to get all the product sorted and organized in order to make the shopping experience easy for Charity Sale customers. Kudlek additionally worked to promote the charity event on social media—announcing the 160 containers of Fill-A-Bag product, thanking the 300 + vendors who donated the product, and posting the amount of funds raised in real-time.

The end result of the Kid to Kid Charity Fill-A-Bag sale was a donation amount of $2,366 to the charity organization BuildOn. This significant contribution will go towards a larger sum that Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate stores across the nation are raising to build schools in impoverished communities around the world. The funds the team has raised so far are the highest yet-recorded, and the franchise team is thrilled to have already built three new schools. You can see the overall progress of the Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate franchise charity team here: https://act.buildon.org/fundraise/team?ftid=44304.

Kid to Kid Austin is looking forward to holding another Charity Fill-A-Bag Sale in 6 months’ time. Until then, and like always, they are buying gently-used kids’ toys, clothes, shoes, and maternity wear—and selling popular brands at up to 70 % less than retail.

As the newest owner of Kid to Kid, Margaret Ward is thrilled to bring this concept to her hometown.

Additionally, they knew that the Murfreesboro area would love a store that offers low-cost and stylish kids’ clothing. “It really is a great concept,” says Ward, “people want convenience and they also want to save. Kid to Kid offers a solution to both. It’s the perfect place for smart parents who are on a budget.”
