Store Visits Dec 2014 186 CHANDLER, AZ—August 15, 2016— Kid to Kid in Chandler, owned by local entrepreneur Erica Gentile, was awarded Store of the Month for July 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, Portugal and Spain. As the youngest of six stores in the Arizona market, Kid to Kid Chandler has demonstrated consistently strong growth, with July sales up an impressive 16.2 percent.

It’s no secret, according to Erica’s franchise support representative, that the success of the store is due in large part to her consistently applying good management practices. She has been focusing on improving processes and training her team in efficiency for an entire year—something that will come in handy as she takes time off in November for maternity leave. “Erica really focuses on keeping the racks full so customers always have a great selection. She has worked hard to understand what is going on in her store by analyzing numbers – a process that as a math major she truly enjoys,” said her support representative.

Erica’s constant focus on the customer experience has contributed to her growing sales numbers each day. A favorite activity is handing out cups of water to overheated customers. The positive comments really help to build staff morale, even as they’re making customers happy in the 100+ degree heat. Thanks to her team’s focus on a good customer experience and maintaining a great selection of product, customers keep coming back. “At our last meeting we joked about ‘slow season’, because it was never slow,” Erica said.

Erica opened her first Kid to Kid store in Gilbert in 2011, and after two years of steady gains, she opened her Chandler store in 2013. “Erica is an amazing owner,” said Kid to Kid founder, Shauna Sloan, “I love that she is open to change. After analyzing her store reports, she made some changes and is seeing the results.”

SALT LAKE CITY, UT—July 20, 2016—Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate resale stores have partnered with buildOn, a non-profit organization that works with under-served communities around the world, to raise funds to build schools in impoverished countries. Store locations all across the United States have raised $164,158 through a Charity Fill-A-Bag event, earning enough to build schools in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Nicaragua and Haiti.

To date, three of the five schools have already been completed in West Africa, and more than 250 students have been attending classes for several months. Each of the completed schools were built in communities with fewer than 50 percent literacy rates, and children were walking miles to attend schools made of little more than straw and sticks. Now, each new school accommodates up to 150 kids and features two classrooms, a sturdy roof, latrines, and classroom supplies.

The Charity Fill-A-Bag event is unique to Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate. The model converts products that would have otherwise been disposed of through a donation process into cash that can be used to fund philanthropic efforts by buildOn. Vendors selling clothes to either Kid to Kid or Uptown Cheapskate are given the option to donate their clothes to the sale. Then, for a $15 donation to buildOn, customers were given a shopping bag to fill with as much specially-marked product as they could stuff in the bag. These semi-annual events have been wildly successful in raising funds for the organization. To create an ongoing impact, the stores also offer customers the option to forgo a plastic bag in exchange for a $.05 donation to buildOn.

“We sought an organization that made a lasting, tangible difference, and buildOn does just that.   We’ve sent team members out to participate in the construction of these schools, and they’ve seen first-hand the impact,” said Scott Sloan, CEO. “Involving the communities in our stores through our Charity Fill-A-Bag has been a win for everybody. Community members recycle items they no longer need, our franchise locations convert that donation to cash through our Charity Fill-A-Bag event, and buildOn uses that money to transform under-served communities by providing lasting education opportunities for their children. We couldn’t be happier with the results,” he said.

BuildOn works in partnership with the ministry of education in each country and the local village to provide the new schools. Villagers work alongside skilled buildOn project supervisors and engineers to construct their school with materials provided by buildOn. The village must also agree to send girls to school in equal numbers with boys for gender balance and equality. The next school funded by Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate is scheduled to break ground in Haiti on August 8th, with another in Nicaragua on October 2nd.

Kid to Kid buys and sells new and gently used children’s and maternity clothes, toys, books, and baby gear. Uptown Cheapskate targets the young adult market and buys and sells new and like-new name brand clothes, shoes, jewelry and handbags.

153 LAKE WORTH, TX—July 13, 2016— The Kid to Kid franchise system awarded the June 2016 Store of the Month designation to Kid to Kid in Lake Worth, owned by local entrepreneur Misti McCay. 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 Lake Worth saw a sales increase of 61 percent in June, the culmination of 10 straight months of significant increases since Misti took over ownership of the store last August.

When asked the secret to her success, Misti didn’t hesitate, “customer service.” The friendly staff, led by manager Lindsey has created a whole new atmosphere. Because of improvements to their operational systems (proven to work in Misti’s original Fort Worth Kid to Kid location) they are seeing much higher return rates for customers that both shop and sell to the store.

But it wasn’t just one thing that made the difference. “We changed everything!” Misti said. “From music, to larger racks and store layout, and even scents, we totally transformed the store. Customers tell us every day how much better the shopping experience is now,” said Misti. She attributed many of the successful changes to the support of BaseCamp Franchising, Kid to Kid’s parent company.

Misti purchased her first Kid to Kid location in 2001 in Fort Worth, and after years of steady growth, she jumped at the opportunity to purchase the struggling Lake Worth store when it became available last summer. “I saw a need in the area and knew the Lake Worth store had potential,” she said. “It just needed the right people and systems, and I knew I could provide that to make a difference.” She did just that. With the help of her impressive team, the store is turning a profit in less than a year. “My staff is so wonderful – we’re like a family, and working with them is the best part about running this business,” she said.

“Misti has worked hard to turn around the negative perception of the Lake Worth store,” said Kid to Kid founder, Shauna Sloan. “We are really amazed at the positive changes she’s implemented and share our happiness with her success.”

As a mom of twins, Misti knows first-hand the value a store like Kid to Kid can bring to a community. She purchased her first Kid to Kid after frequently shopping and selling there for her then toddlers. “I just love the buy and sell concept,” she said. Now 14 years later, she’s running two thriving stores that serve thousands of families in her community.

Keller Texas Kid to Kid KELLER, TX—April 8, 2016—Kid to Kid Franchise System has awarded Store of the Month honors to Kid to Kid in Keller, TX. This store was selected from over 100 Kid to Kid franchise units in the US, Portugal, and Canada, and recognized for significant growth in both sales and the amount of product purchased from parents in the Keller community.

Kid to Kid pays families cash for the nice things their kids have outgrown. According to Franchise Support Director Joslin Wright, the Keller store increased buying from the public by over 60% in March. This has a significant impact on families in Keller and surrounding areas, as they recognize the benefits of recycling – both in terms of what they earn when they sell their children’s clothes, toys, and baby gear, and in the savings they experience when buying the things their kids need today.

The Keller store expanded last June and has more than doubled the space and product available for parents. Each size (infants to kid size 14) has nearly 1,000 unique items for parents to choose from as they create fashionable outfits for their kids. Most shoppers also come away with a toy or two, shoes to match their outfits, and a couple of bows for their girls. Store manager Laura Weaver explains, “Our customers are always telling us how amazed they are at the quality, the selection, and the unbelievably low prices in our store. Many of them shop multiple times a week just to see what we’ve put out new.”

In order to accommodate more parents selling their kids’ stuff, the store has put an increased emphasis on making it convenient to sell. Most sellers are in and out in about 30 minutes – with cash in hand. A large percentage choose to take payment in store credit because they earn 20% more, and they can use that money to shop for clothes and toys for their kids. Franchise vendor survey results show a 94% satisfaction rate with the selling experience. One happy customer reported, “The buying process is getting quicker”, while others reported that the girls taking in items were “friendly, helpful, and kind.” As Franchise Founder Shauna Sloan explains, “Our goal at Kid to Kid is to reward families emotionally and financially for recycling their kids’ stuff. The Keller store is doing a stellar job of providing that service to the lucky families who shop and sell at this great store.”

ARLINGTON, TX—March 8, 2016— Kid to Kid in Arlington, owned by local entrepreneur Debbie Farrar, was awarded Store of the Month for February, just weeks before celebrating it’s 20th anniversary. 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. One major factor that contributed to the Arlington store’s success was its consistent growth, despite being in the same market under the same management for 13 years.

“The Arlington store is a shining model of what a Kid to Kid store should be like – just on a super grand scale!” commented Kid to Kid founder, Shauna Sloan. “The organization, merchandising and product selection (both new and used) are superior – which is clearly the driving factor behind a sales increase of 29%,” she said.

At 15,000 square feet, the Arlington location is the largest in the system and has consistently ranked #1 in sales every year since Farrar purchased the store in 2003. Farrar and her team constantly push the limits of what is possible for the franchise, and with their strict focus on organization, efficiency, and innovation, they continuously reach new milestones unprecedented by any other store in the system.

Farrar says when she purchased the 7 year-old store in 2003, she “never looked back.” Having worked in the children’s resale industry for a number of years, Farrar knew she loved the business and jumped at the opportunity to work for herself. “I love being able to help families and kids have nice things,” she said. “I was a substitute teacher for years and with four children of my own, I couldn’t stand for kids to get made fun of at school when they didn’t have name brand clothing.” She saw the importance the resale clothing business was to her community in allowing families to find good quality clothing, toys and baby equipment at an affordable price.

Not long after purchasing the store, the local school district approached Farrar and asked her to carry school uniforms when a major retailer in town went out of businesses. Feeling this would be a good way to serve the community, Farrar added 1,000 square feet to the business to carry uniforms, and the sales followed. Farrar enlarged the store three times before finally moving to a larger location in January of this year, becoming the world’s largest Kid to Kid.

In addition to the growing store, Farrar expanded into other areas of the Dallas/Fort Worth market. In 2005, she opened another Kid to Kid location in Burleson, and then in 2013, she purchased the failing Weatherford location and completely turned it around. Farrar expanded even further that same year by opening the sister store, Uptown Cheapskate, a fashion resale store for teens and young adults.

When asked what Farrar loves most about owning a Kid to Kid store, she didn’t hesitate, “I love the employees, customers and other Kid to Kid owners,” she said. “I employ more than 70 employees between the four stores, and I feel I have a lot to teach them as they journey through their lives with our company or other businesses.” Farrar also loves that by owning her own stores, she is able to keep it a family business and work with her husband and children each day.

EVANS, GA—January 21, 2016—BaseCamp Franchising is pleased to award the Kid to Kid Store of the Month award for December to Shannon Unger, owner of the Evans Kid to Kid location. 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. Unger’s store continually ranks among the top three Kid to Kid locations for sales every year due to her strong management skills, her love of the business, and her genuine compassion for the people she serves.

One of the most impressive successes of the Evans store is its continuous growth. Sales were up 21 percent in December, and it attracted more than 400 new customers despite the fact that the store has been open for 10 years. This is a testament to the impact Unger’s store makes in her community each day, allowing thousands of families to stretch their budgets without sacrificing style or quality. “Shannon is winning Store of the Month because she does amazing things with her management skills, and serves the community in a very significant way,” said Shauna Sloan, founder of Kid to Kid.

Unger says the best part of being a Kid to Kid owner is she gets to do what she loves while being there for her family. “I love my life!” she said. “I get to work with great people and help out the community at the same time. It’s fun to provide a service for families and individuals who are looking for a great deal on fashionable clothes. And the items we don’t sell we donate to local charities. It just feels good.”

Unger first opened her store in Evans in 2006, and has become one of the top franchisees in the Kid to Kid system. “As a single mom of five kids, I understand how expensive it can be to raise a growing family,” Unger said. When her Evans location grew so busy that she worried about being able to properly serve the community, she opened another Kid to Kid store in Augusta. Between the two stores and her two Uptown Cheapskate stores (a buy and sell fashion exchange for teens and young adults), she benefits thousands of families each year.

“Shannon is really a leader in our franchise system,” said Sloan. “She not only ranks in the top spots for sales for both Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate, but she continually imparts her knowledge and experience to other franchisees to improve the entire brand. She is an inspiring business owner, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to award her with the Store of the Month designation.”

Salisbury - Emily Schramm LeAnna Bush Nancy Kline SALISBURY, MD—December 3, 2015—Local residents, Nancy Kline, Emily Schramm and LeAnna Bush, are excited to announce the grand opening of their Kid to Kid children’s resale store on Friday, December 11 at 10 a.m. The grand opening will feature prize giveaways, an appearance by Elmo, and the first chance for customers to shop the store.

Located at 2632 N Salisbury Blvd. in Salisbury, 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 the public for customers to sell their gently used items for cash. After the grand opening, customers will be able to shop for new and like-new children’s clothes, shoes, toys, baby equipment and maternity apparel 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 up to 20 percent more in store credit.

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.

“I am so excited to bring Kid to Kid to the Salisbury community. I love the idea of giving people a place to recycle their gently used kids clothing and gear,” said Bush. “Being a mother of a young family, I understand the expense of little ones and how fast they grow. It is a win-win for everyone, whether you are buying or selling or both.”

Although this is the first Kid to Kid store for Kline, Schramm and Bush, they are not new to the resale concept. In 2010, mother and daughter team Kline and Schramm opened their first Uptown Cheapskate store in Timonium, the sister store of Kid to Kid that buys and sells teen and young adult fashion. They now own three Uptown Cheapskate stores in Timonium, Rockville and Salisbury. Kline and Schramm teamed up with Bush to open their first Kid to Kid directly next door to the newly expanded Salisbury Uptown Cheapskate store. They are excited to apply the principles they’ve learned from Uptown Cheapskate to create a successful Kid to Kid business, and provide an important resource to families in their community.

For more information, visit the store website or follow Kid to Kid Salisbury on Facebook for frequent updates, pictures and happenings in the store. For Kid to Kid franchise information, visit the Franchise Opportunity page.
