Each Once Upon A Child location is individually owned and operated by moms and dads like you, who understand money doesn’t grow on trees. We opened our doors on July 7, 1999 and have enjoyed it ever since.
Our customers want quality children’s clothing and we’re excited that we can offer discounts up to 70% off of original retail prices. We strive to offer a fun and convenient way to sell your gently used items. Whether you’re buying or selling, we would love to help you find what you’re looking for. We offer payment on-the-spot for items we select that meet current style, safety and condition standards. We maintain high merchandise standards by thoroughly inspecting all toys and equipment for any safety recalls.
My name is Renee Reich, I have a wonderful and supportive husband Jeremy and a beautiful daughter Sydney. I started this business because I loved the concept and believed that Mankato would benefit from a store like this that would offer a great product at a great price. When I opened this store in 1999, my daughter was only 3 1/2 years old. I have pictures of her riding her trike around an empty store. After working at the store for several years, she is now 20 years old and going to college.
I have a caring and efficient staff who care about helping our customers with any of your needs, whether you are buying or selling, we intend to exceed your expectations of costumer service.
Thank you for your past and future business.
