In Riverview, providing for children while also being budget-conscious and saving big means shopping at Ready, Set, Grow.
” We are a Children’s Consignment store. We consign children’s and youth brand name clothing. We also carry a variety of Local and New items,” says Elizabeth, as she warmly welcomes visitors into her charming store.
As the cost of raising children continues to soar, along with the general cost of living, Ready, Set, Grow becomes more than just a shopping destination; it becomes a solution. Elizabeth emphasizes the increasing popularity of second-hand and consignment shopping, citing it as a wonderful opportunity for parents to save money while also earning some by consigning their items. “There is so much opportunity in this field. We see more and more people catering to this market all of the time which just speaks to the need for more cost-effective clothing and children’s items,” she explains, highlighting the economic and environmental advantages of consignment shopping.
The overwhelming support from the local community is a testament to the store’s impact. Customers express their satisfaction not only with the quality and variety of the items but also with the unique opportunity to consign their gently used children’s clothing. Ready, Set, Grow boasts a full schedule of consignors for weeks in advance, signifying the trust and loyalty it has garnered.
However, Elizabeth’s vision goes beyond running a successful business. Ready, Set, Grow actively contributes to the community by donating unsold clothing to local schools. This thoughtful initiative ensures that students in need have access to proper clothing for the school year. “We are also able to donate unsold clothing to local schools who are then able to clothe their students who would not have the proper clothing for the school year,” Elizabeth proudly shares. It’s a heartwarming example of a small store making a big difference in the lives of those around them.
In the midst of a bustling market, Ready, Set, Grow stands tall, not just as a store but as a community hub fostering sustainability, affordability, and philanthropy. Elizabeth Stacey’s pride in her store radiates, and rightfully so. More than a business, the store is a solution to the challenges too often faced by those raising the next generation.
