Shopping the Growing Kids Sale

Welcome to our page about shopping at the Growing Kids Sale! If you read the information below, as well as the links on the right-hand side navigation bar, you will learn everything you need to know about shopping our consignment event!

If you participated last fall, you may remember some of the changes we had to make due to Covid. The state health department guidelines are still very similar to last fall, so we will continue many of those changes, with some tweaks here and there.

As always, it is our goal to help our community bring down the cost of growing kids, and although it may still look a little different this sale, we will do whatever it necessary to stay in compliance with health dept guidelines and continue bringing the savings that so many families have to come to depend upon. So now, on to the changes for Spring 2021!

MASK WEARING
Any mask-wearing requirements for shoppers during the sale will follow whatever mandates are set forth by our city & state at that time, so as of right now, bring your mask!

PUBLIC SHOPPING ADMISSION (one-in-one-out method)
We will be monitoring the building capacity to allow for proper social distancing, and will utilize the one-in-one-out method if necessary.

MODIFIED CHECK-OUT / CUSTOMER BAGGING
Our check-out process will be modified so that we can process transactions more quickly and maximize social distancing at check-out. We will now ask that shoppers bag their own purchases using our “bagging stations” at check-out to help with speed & social distancing in the check-out area (bring your own tote to save time!).

BRING YOUR OWN TOTE (no blue shopping bags)
We will not be able to provide blue shopping bags for sanitization reasons, so please bring your own shopping tote (other ideas are: wagons, strollers, laundry baskets or carts). If you forget yours, we will have BRAND NEW blue Ikea bags available for purchase for $2 each (while supplies last), and they will be yours to take home with you!

COVID RELATED CHANGES
There will be many processes to ensure our event is safe according to the Arkansas State Dept of Health guidelines.
A. We will be limiting the amount of people in the building to ensure ample social distancing.
B. There will be hand sanitizer provided at every entry & exit, as well as at check-out.
C. There will be frequent sanitization of commonly used areas such as check-out.
D. Our cashiers & helpers will be required to wear masks.
E. Per the CDC, coronavirus naturally dies on most surfaces & objects between a few hours to 3 days, and the GKS schedule allows for multiple days between drop-offs & shopping, which should add to your shopping comfort & confidence in buying at GKS.

We apologize for the long list of changes, but it is important for us to implement processes that will allow us to continue bringing the sale to our community. It may look a little different this time around, but we'll all get through this together! And hopefully after it's all said and done, you'll LOVE some of these new and improved changes, and maybe even
want some of them to stick around! ❤

Reasons to Shop
  • Low Prices - Consignors generally price their items between 20-30% of retail - that's a 70-80%+ savings for you! And don't forget half-price day, when many remaining items are an additional 50% off!

  • Quality items - We all know our little ones grow so fast that many items never get touched! Growing Kids makes every effort to only accept quality items without blemishes or excessive wear, so you'll know your selection is exceptional!

  • Large Selection - with hundreds of consignors and 45,000 square feet filled with everything for babies and kids, you'll be sure to find what you're looking for - a ONE-STOP shopping extravaganza!

  • Merchandise Variety - Not only do we accept anything and everything related to kids, you'll find multiples of items and a span of many brands to choose from. We carry sizes newborn to a boys/girls size 20, and a few teen brands & sizes! See below for a more detailed list of what you'll find at Growing Kids!

  • Ease of Shopping - Unlike yard sales, you won't be sorting through boxes or piles of clothing. Our clothing is all hung on clothing racks, separated by gender and size, with matching tags in the same location on each piece, much like you'd find in a retail store!

  • Convenient Hours & Location - Our hours are designed to give everyone a convenient opportunity to shop, including daytime, evening and weekend hours, and admission and parking are FREE!

Keys to Being a Savvy Shopper!

  • Shopping Bags: We provide large bags for you to carry your purchases while you shop, but you may wish to bring your own tote or laundry basket in case we run out, or so that we can load your purchases in your bag to take home.
    BRING YOUR OWN TOTE! We will not be able to provide blue shopping bags for this upcoming event due to sanitization reasons, so please bring your own shopping tote (other ideas are: wagons, strollers, laundry baskets or carts). If you forget yours, we will have BRAND NEW blue Ikea bags available for purchase for $2 each (while supplies last), and they will be yours to take home with you!

  • Stroller Pass: If you bring a stroller or other item similar to items we sell, you will receive a Stroller Pass as you enter so that we know it belongs to you.

  • Payments Accepted: We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard & Discover, including any debit cards which have the Visa, MC or Discover logo. Shoppers MUST show a Driver's License if paying by credit or debit.

  • When We Open: Often times, shoppers will arrive before we open and form a line to get in. Being a part of this line is entirely up to you!

  • Inspect Your Purchases:We work hard to make sure that only quality items make it to the sales floor. Unfortunately, sometimes an item will get through inspection that should not have been accepted. All sales are final, and since these are gently-used items, please thoroughly check each clothing item for blemishes before you purchase. If you find blemished items, we would appreciate you handing them to a GKS staff or teammate to be returned to the consignor. We also have a Toy Inspection Station located in the toy room, where the stationed GKS teammate can help you test an electronic item or open a DVD before purchasing.

  • Bring Measurements: We do not have dressing rooms available, so it may be helpful to you to bring your child's measurements (such as waist measurement, pant length, bottom of foot, etc), along with a measuring tape.

  • Buying a Large Item: Each of our large items (such as strollers, pack-n-plays, exer-saucers, furniture, swings, etc) will have a "Large Item Claim Ticket" connected to it. To buy one of those items, simply follow the instructions on the ticket. This will allow you to buy the item without carrying it while you shop, and you'll not need to move it until you're ready to load it in your vehicle. We always have at least one young man on duty to help you load the item if you need assistance. If the item will not fit in the vehicle you brought, please let us know so that we can instruct you on how to mark the item and come back for it later.

  • Item Prices: If you'd like to know what price ranges you'll find, it might help to view the list of recommended price ranges we give our consignors. You can view that list by clicking here. Please note that our consignors set their own prices on their items, so prices will vary, and Growing Kids is unable to change any item prices.
