Visit Another Time Around at its new Jefferson location

GENEVA — Another Time Around, a children’s gently used clothing and accessory store, has out-grown its original location and is open for business at 112 S. Chestnut St., Jefferson.

“We had completely out-grown the other building and my husband and I had the opportunity to buy this building,” said Jill Goodale, who co-owns Another Time Around with her daughter, Heather Stone.

Jill and Hugh Goodale bought the building which is located just south of the Shell Gas Station on South Chestnut St.

“The store rents the downstairs space from us and soon there will be an apartment upstairs for rent,” she said.

Another Time Around originally opened November, 2011, with a vision to help families find affordable, like new clothing and accessories, during these economic hard times.

Goodale and Stone first took on this business venture after talking and praying about possibly opening their own store.

“The idea seemed perfect, Heather is a stay-at-home mom, so she could work and have her children with her. We would be able to work together, and I would get to be with my grandchildren,” Goodale said.

The mother/daughter team began collecting items they found at area garage sales and on the Internet social media network, Facebook.

“We prayed about our ideas and everything fell into place,” Goodale said.

The first year was a success and Goodale said they learned the retail ropes through trial and error.

“Our first location was very affordable, but we out-grew it so fast,” she said.

The new store space is much more open and comfortable for shoppers. It also has ample storage space and features a “buying” room at the back of the store with its own entrance to make it convenient for customers who are bringing in items to sell to Another Time Around. The new location also has its own parking area in the back of the building.

“We offer a couple of options to customers who sell their items to us. We can offer them cash or store credit. With the store credit option they get a higher rate for their items,” Goodale said.

The value of the items depends on condition, age and brand name of each item.

“We do not sell car seats or anything that has been recalled,” she said.

With the larger space, Another Time Around has expanded its inventory to include maternity wear and a larger variety of baby gear.

Clothing sizes includes premature baby to child size 7-8. Outerwear is also available such as winter coats, boots, snowsuits, and (brand new) hats and gloves. There are also all types of clothing accessories including shoes, socks, hair ribbons and more.

Baby gear items includes high chairs, boosters, bouncers, swings, walkers, blankets, bedding sets, nursery room lamps and decor, and much more.

A variety of toys are also available appropriate up to age 10.

“It is so nice here, it is open and roomy, and we have received many positive complements from our customers,” Goodale said.

“As owners of our own store, we are both really enjoying the flexibility, and it is so nice to work with my daughter and have my grandchildren here with us,” she said.

Another Time Around store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday - Friday, and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday. For more information call Goodale at 440-576-0222.
