KENTWOOD, MI — Amanda and Patrick Funnell have worked tirelessly with their team to open the doors of just the second Kid to Kid store in the Midwest.
The store is located at 3110 28th St. SE in Kentwood, about eight miles from downtown Grand Rapids. “We are excited to be in the Kentwood and Grand Rapids community,” said Amanda. “Raising children isn’t cheap and we are here to help with that.”
“I fell in love with Kid to Kid back in 2012 when we were living in Denver, Colorado,” remembers Amanda. “I loved finding great deals and shopping in an environment that felt more like a retail store than a resale store.”
Several large communities in the area will also embrace this shopping experience, as the next closest Kid to Kid is some 170 miles away in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
On June 7, 2018, the Kentwood location hosted a weekend-long Grand Opening event. Customers lined up early to get inside on that first day, hoping for a chance to win a free reusable bag, free clothes for a year, and tickets to a Detroit Tigers game.
The store has been stocking up for weeks, buying gently-used clothing from the local community. Amanda has been amazed by the wonderful response from the community and appreciates all who have come to the store. “My favorite question from people coming in to check us out is ‘Is this all new or used?’ People can’t believe that a used store can be so bright and organized.”
Kid to Kid stores offer a variety of name brand children’s clothing, toys, maternity, and accessories up to 90 percent off the price of original retail price. Kid to Kid in Kentwood also continues to pay community members for gently-used apparel and items in cash or offer 20 percent more for in-store credit.
