As the new owners of this store, we strongly disagree with the previous review. Any Gymboree clothing with tags that come into our store we are eager to accept. Sometimes we are overstocked and have to temporarily suspend buying of certain sizes, but that never lasts long. We buy all day, every day, all seasons. I can assure you that we work very hard to treat our customers fairly. I'm sorry this customer was not pleased with their experience. She should have asked for the owner and let me know so I could address her concerns.

Questionable – I feel the same way every time I leave there and I always swear I'll never go back, but when I'm short on cash and my stuff isn't selling on eBay, I have gone against my better judgment. The other person who said their buying is shoddy is 100% correct. I brought in a plastic tub filled to the brim with in-season, clean, excellent condition recent Gymboree (some with tags still on) clothes for baby girl mostly 6-12 and 12-18 months. Some of the stuff they rejected was nuts (it's 90 degrees out on May 2nd (very beginning of summer!)and they rejected numerous shorts, tanks and tees, despite the fact that they were in perfect condition. When I asked why, I was told a pair of shorts were "too worn looking on the knees..." um...they're shorts, they don't even cover the knees. The style is to have the pockets look worn... whatever. The items they did pay me for I ended up getting about a dollar a pop. For like-new in-season GYMBOREE. Thanks, but I'll try my luck on CList next time, I'll get more money and sell to nicer, smarter buyers. Don't waste your time trying to sell to these idiots.
