New Once Upon A Child now open in Cape Coral

February 1, 2019
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Local parents now have a place that not only puts cash back into their pockets, but sells gently-used children's clothes, shoes, toys, equipment and more for less! A favorite with families, the new Once Upon A Child in Cape Coral opened Thursday, Jan. 31.

The grand opening celebration lasts through Saturday, Feb. 2.

Located at 1500 N.E. Pine Island Road, the new Once Upon A Child is part of a unique national recycling retail chain that specializes in merchandise for infants to pre-teens. The store buys and sells quality, gently-used children's apparel, shoes, books, baby equipment and furniture, and more.

"Our store fills a distinct niche in the retail market," said Gary Fike, who owns the new Once Upon A Child with his wife Debbie. "I understand how expensive it is to raise children today and want to offer an affordable option for local families. By purchasing merchandise directly from consumers, we're able to offer them lower prices and a great opportunity to receive cash on the spot for items they may have otherwise simply given away."

Unlike a typical consignment store, Once Upon A Child does not require appointments and pays on the spot for items it purchases from consumers. At Once Upon A Child families are able to buy necessities for their children at great values, and turn their gently-used items into cash.

In addition, Once Upon A Child ensures that all products purchased and sold meet mandatory and voluntary safety standards. Staff members stay up-to-date on current recalled items, immediately pulling all recalled products from shelves and making sure all items purchased are safety-checked to meet current standards.

For questions on the buying process or store hours, the new Once Upon A Child can be reached at 239-984-2218 or visit the website
