KID TO KID?
The clothing resale industry is thriving and is expected to reach $70 billion in the U.S. by 2027. As consumers increasingly gravitate towards resale’s combination of value and sustainability, the industry is poised to meet a growing wave of demand.
At Kid to Kid, we marry best-in-class value and assortment with a beautifully designed, community-oriented shopping experience. When shoppers walk into a Kid to Kid for the first time, they might not even realize that they are in a used clothing store – except when they look at the prices. That’s exactly why more and more people are turning to Kid to Kid to meet the ever-changing and growing needs of their families. As our founders like to say, “Kids grow faster than paychecks!”
