Business Description

Once Upon A Child has been a fixture in the Fayetteville community since 1999. This store has provided thousands of families with high quality, gently used apparel, equipment and accessories. Mom's start shopping the store for their newborn and infant and continue on through toddler, preschool and youth ages. As families grow, the cycle continues!

Once Upon A Child offers a truly unique retail franchise opportunity as the leading children’s resale store of its kind -- focusing on the buying and selling of high-quality, new and gently used apparel, toys, baby equipment and furniture for children at affordable, family-friendly prices.

We are the largest national chain that specializes in reselling clothing and other items for children from infants through tweens. With over 300 store locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, we out-number Children’s Orchard® and Kid to Kid® more than 3 to 1! Unlike our competitors, we don’t believe in consigning and we pay $$$ on the spot! We also buy all seasons – all the time, with no appointment necessary.

There is an amazing amount of nearly-new clothing, toys, baby gear and more hidden in every family’s home, which presents fantastic opportunities for both franchise owners and customers alike.

If you're looking for a well established business with plenty of room to grow, Once Upon A Child in Fayetteville is worth checking out!
