I have been a customer of STA for many years and have never encountered a rude salesperson or noticed kids are not welcome. The consignment area is small, but I have taken my kids in there with no problems. They have a large selection, and most items still have original tags on them!
By reading these reviews, I believe they were written for your location (2nd Time Around Okemos, Mi). I was in yesterday to consign and experienced the same unfriendly (but not rude) treatment....AND was told that you now limit each consign visit to 30 items per day. I could understand if there was a line of people waiting but there wasn't. I drove 30 miles with several excellent boys items and was forced to take all but the 30 back home. Gas is too expensive to drive there several times. I left to shop at another consignment store and was asked 5 times if I was finding everything ok. I have never had this happen at STA...they walk right by without a word. So there is no confusion, this review is written about 2nd Time Around Okemos, Mi.
Privately owned Consignment shop – The second Time Around Clothing consignment shop in Okemos Michigan is NOT affiliated with another national consignment chain called Second Time Around. It has been in Okemos for over 35 years!!!. There have been several reviews given here that are not associated with the store. Please Come check them out! It is HUGE!. Clothing and accessories for the whole family!
Rude employee – I have visited this store several times, I come from out of town, There is one woamn in oarticular who is rude, she wears glasses and has dark hair, maybe she does'nt like mexicans, and I feel I was robbed fro all the clothe I took there to sell, I could of done pretty good, I know others have, that is why I took my clothes there, they have nice clothes, but need nicer workers !!!!!!!!!
Great shop: great place to consigh and shop – I have been shopping and consigning at the 2nd Time Around for the past 25 years and I have never experienced anything like " jihanemo" experienced.
I have to question the writers honesty. The writer is mis-informed about Second Time Around. One the shop is not a company and it is locally owned and operated. Second: the writer is in error stating that they has shopped in 3 different states, MA.: NY & Il. As a shopper at the store, it is well known that the store is locally owned and operated. So wherever this person has been shopping is questionable. Third the staff have always been pleasant and cooperative-offering suggestions and helpful comments as to why/why not they will accept my clothing. And yes over the years they have had a few 'grumpy" employees, but they are no longer there.
If the writer read their contract they would know that a check is issued only when the amount is $10.00 or more. And perhaps your items did not sell. It also states very clearly on the contract, at least it does on mine- that they are not responsible for items lost or stolen. SO BIG EXAGGERATION JIHANEMO- DO YOURSELF A FAVOR BEFORE YOUR WRITE A REVIEW FOR THE SECOND TIME AROUND OR FOR ANY OTHER STORE FOR THAT MATTER. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. DON't BE SO DISTUSTING AND SHADY AND QUESTIONABLE.
As a shopper and consigner the Second Time Around has served me and my family well from the time it opened its doors to the present. They know their business being the first consignment shop in Okemos/Lansing area. They have been in business successfully for over 25 years.So whatever 2nd TIme Around 'jihanemo' is referring to it is c they are referring to Second Time Around, Okemos, MI
Scam Artists – Poor customer service. Once they take your clothes, they really have no interest in (1) paying you on time once your clothes sell, (2) making sure that you get back the items that didn't sell. It took them MONTHS to give me a check for the money the owed me on sold items. They claimed they "lost" my items that didn't sell. Really? REALLY? Please folks - do your self a MAJOR FAVOR and AVOID THIS COMPANY. I have lived in 3 different states and used their shops in MA, NY, and IL. EVERY SINGLE location I've been to has disgusting sales people and shady business practices. No exaggeration.They are a joke.
Love this place – I have been a consignor at 2nd time around for over 10 years, and really am shocked by the number of rude reviews.. I always have encountered friendly staff, that inquire as to my health, how the drive was from where I was coming, my children, etc.. Maybe it's because I'm a long standing customer and am recognized, but I guessing people are easily offended when their items are rejected.. Seriously, they know what sells- most of my items always sell--
Also in regards to the child comment.. I have often seen children in there and always took my baby in his carrier when he was little, and no one ever said a word to me. I'm guessing they do not want to have a bunch of children running around getting into trouble.. as I would for sure not want my child in there creating an issue!
I cannot find as good of place that takes as much clothing and gives as good of prices anywhere in the Ann Arbor, Brighton, Hartland, Jackson, area.. so have chosen to commute about once a month to 2nd time around.. they are super flexible with what they take at what times of day.,. Seriously worth your time and effort..
rudest place ive ever shoped – rudest place ever i love stores like this and way happy with deal selling and bying but everyone is just so rude ect that ive dont go back and the took all my cloths and sold most its just that uninjoyable.
RUDE Staff all around! – I have consigned clothes at 2nd Time Around a few times, and I have been shopping there for years, despite the fact that the staff have poor manners.
The first time I went to consign clothes, the woman on staff (who was wearing wool socks with sandals, a wrinkly peasant skirt and a piled fleece pull over) had the nerve to laugh at some of the clothes I brought in! I found this to be very unprofessional and offensive.
I have been there to consign clothes other times and the staff was friendly to me, but I noticed them being rude to other people. Also, they will NOT allow any children to be in the consignment room- not even babies in carriers.
Their selection of clothing in the store is usually VERY dated. However, they are an okay source for children clothing.
The only reason that I gave them two stars instead of one is because I feel like you get a good percentage of the garment's sale price. (Which depends upon how soon it sells.)
Monstrous Staff – I was bringing in consignments that I had; freshly laundered, ironed, and checked over for flaws. I had been here before so I understood that some pieces would be rejected. After waiting 30 minutes for my turn, The girl who finally came to get me was familiar but her condescending, unfriendly, and beastly behavior was not. As I stood there waiting for her to go through my clothes in the jam packed tiny area, the very kind grandma I had been chatting with was receiving the same behavior from a different staff member. The customer was visibly upset by the rude behavior. Next to her, another woman was getting the same treatment and began to confront the worker. The confrontation escalated. I was not surprised. The people who work there are VERY UNHAPPY women who must be hired for their rude demeanor and trained by management who do not understand the meaning of kindness. I understand they have a job to do and not every item brought in can be accepted but that does not constitute their rudeness.
