Shopping >Kids Junction Resale
crappy crappy place.
i went into this store just to look around, now since I wasn't looking for anything specific I didn't really care if I received any customer service from these dumb broads, but no other person in the store did either. Now I realize that they probably hate their $7.00 an hour job and they probably steal some clothing/toys for their own kids but its not their fault, the blame must be on the manager/owner if that person gave a damn about their business then customer service would be exemplary. I didn't personally go through trying to sell items but if I was treated half as bad as these other women they would definitely regret speaking to me like that. Well ladies that are plenty other resale shops in San Antonio just google it if I were you I wouldn't give these "people" my business let them just go bankrupt!!
***And if any employees or even the owner is reading these comments REMEMBER if it wasn't for people coming in to resale their items you idiots wouldn't have a job!!!!!!! So treat people right you never know who you might cross***
Do not patronize this establishment..
The staff is horribly rude to people who are trying to sell clothing. They use a black light to scan clothing for stains. When was the last time your toddler went to a RAVE!!??! They have ridiculous limitations on what they will buy and the amount that they will pay. The funny thing is that the clothes in their store do not look anywhere near perfect, and the prices are to close to clearance prices to be a good buy. The last straw for me was when they refused to buy my son's Gap jeans because they were too faded! It's like they haven't stepped foot into a real store and checked out the current fashions! HELLO - that's how they are sold brand new!
I think the only positive reviews must come from the owner or her friends and family, because the same experience by so many people IS NOT a coincidence.
Some good prices, bad service. I have been going to KJ for the past 8 years, and they do have some good prices. I recommend shopping for clothes and toys for the younger age group (8 yrs. and younger), very good stuff. But, for older than 8 is hard to find everyday clothes that are functional and cute. You'll have better luck finding dresses for that special occasion, or Sunday clothes. Over the years, they have gotten nastier, and pickier. But, I don't know whether it is that they are more willing to buy little kids clothers rather than older kids clothes (as my kids have grown). They do tend to make you feel dirty, and yes customer service at Goodwill IS tons better. As far as kids are concerned, when my kids were little they did look forward to playing in the back. But I was also careful not to allow them to run around the store or go under the racks as did alot of other children. All in all, I do go there for special ocassion dresses for my girls, and pants for boys, but I'd rather bless someone with my kids clothes than deal with those ladies and NOT get much money. BY THE WAY THERE IS A MUCH BETTER RESALE STORE WITH WONDERFUL SERVICE, KID-TO-KID in the shopping center on Huebner and Vance Jackson.
Questionable experience. I went to this resale shop a number of years ago. My daughter is nine now.I think she was about 1 when I attempted to take some things for consignment there. I only went once. The folks there were pretty rude. I had never been to a cosignment or resale store before so I had no expectations. I am a germ freak and I have a bit of OCD in regards to clean clothes and clean children.They made me feel like I was the nastiest mom in san antonio when I tried to resale some items. I left in near tears never to return again. They were so rude and I almost had to wait over 15 minutes before anyone even acknowledged my presence in the store. I was patient through the process though. Now some years later I just cleaned out both my kids closets. I have been taking tons of items to goodwill or donating to the local children's home for the past 4 years. I thought why not try to earn a few extra bucks for a change but Im afraid to spend $3.49 per gallon of gas to drive across town to be humilated again. i dont know of any other resale stores for kids clothes though. I am hoping that the few good reviews that I have seen posted in the last month or two are accurate accounts of their store experience. Maybe I will give a shot again..................
best resale in town. I think the people writing bad reviews for Kids Junction must really have some personal issues. I go there often to buy and sell and so do alot of my friends. All the womens meetings I attend there is alot of talk about places to shop and this store always comes up and always very positive things to say. They have always been very fair in buying things from me. They tell me that the prices they set are usually about one-fourth to one-half of the current retail price. I do think some people have a very inflated idea of what used items should be worth. They are very selective which is good when you are buying items. As to the person who said the items were not good- must have thought she was in Macy's-- this is a resale store! You really should check it out for yourself. If you do have any concerns just ask for the owner(Charlene), she would be happy to talk to you, she has been the owner for 24 years.
very good deals. If you make an appointment and bring in stuff thats in good shape to sell they will look through it and decide how much they would charge, and give you 40% of that. I mean something thats useless to you no matter how much you originally spent on it is worth exactly nothing. I took in that sort of stuff and walked out with 68 bucks. I have also bought really cool toys for less than 5 dollars. Just remember it's a retail store, not the baby gap. If you expect the staff to follow you around and kiss your butt your in the wrong place.
Give it a try and see for yourself!. I am surprised by these reviews. I just moved to SA and I really liked the store. I went in and bought some really great priced, good quality items. The next time I went in I brought stuff for the resale. I was dissapointed at several items they wouldn't take, and they did examine everything very closely, but on the flip side it helped to assure me that when I buy something from there it will be in really good shape. I did feel a little like I must be a "dirty" mom, but I have four kids, so hey, I do the best I can. All in all I really did like it, the sales people were very pleasant, and I really recommend you try it for yourself.
Kid Junction Resale - Worst place to go!. Don't go to Kid Junction if you are looking for quality items. They sell really old and worn goods, not to my liking. Please don't try to sell your stuff there either because they will only give you pennies on the dollar. I took in $400 worth of items all in great condition, some almost new, if not new with tags and they offered less than $40 for the entire amount. I believe they are taking advantage of selllers they believe to be desperate for money. I took all my stuff back and even gave some of it away at the store to some of the customers. They were very grateful. I will be giving my stuff away at a street corner on the least affluent side of town, which makes me feel much better than earning a few measly bucks. And by the way, the staff is verrrrrrrrrry slow.
awful service and rude people. I have to agree that the people are horribly rude. Occasionally I find a good deal on toys, but I wouldn't sell there. I have seen them be awful to people who come in to sell things. Goodwill has better service and better clothes!
best kids store. I do not understand what all these reviews are saying. I go into Kids Junction at least once a week and have never seen any rude employees, In fact, I have noticed everyone going out of their way to be helpful. The merchandise is great and prices fantastic. It is well worth the drive from anywhere in San Antonio. You really should try it before you listen to other people.
