Went by to redeem a credit and wasn't really suprised to find that the store was closed permantely. I have to agree with the other reviews. I experienced the owner being very rude and unprofessional. Usually when you are a business owner you would think that they would go out of the way to welcome and be curtious to the customer. Good By & Good Riddens! They saved a lot of people from future frustration . . . audios'

All I can say is WOW.....this place is STUPID. The prices are not that good for what you get, you can go to target and get new items for less. I have taken stuff there 3 times now and they are ALWAYS rude, and don't pay you jack for your stuff. I asked if they took bumbos and they sell them for half price and only pay you 30-40% of what they sell it for. So after doing the math, that's only at most $8!!!! WHAT!? I'd rather sit on the corner and offer it at that price.

I have a to agree with most of the other on here!

I took a Fisher Price Rainforest open top cradle swing to OUAC that was practically new my son was not a fan of it. No stains. It was in PERFECT condition. I wasn't expecting to get all of my money back, but they offered me 17 dollars?! I paid 130.

Same with a lot of my clothes I bring down there! No stains, tears, etc.

But when I go through the racks I'll find stains, tears, holes on the clothes that they are trying to sell. What a joke!

Plus the staff is RUDE!.

I went and brought some of my kids used and never been touched clothes. Two young hispanic staff was not very helpful. I asked questions, and they seems like they do not understand me, and if they do respond they were very condencending. They speak spanish among themselves, little thing they did not know, I understand what they were saying. They were very picky on selecting clothes. I had a lot of nice name brand clothes. I will never ever go back to this place. Unless you speak Spanish, or their relatives......

I brought a huge boxe of NEW clothes that my daughter grew out of before she could wear them and i waited for 3 hours!!!! for them to tell me there were stains on the clothes and they could not buy them. these clothes still had tags on them. When I asked to speak to a manager they told me that the manager will not meet you in person or talk on the phone, she will only answer emails. ??? I emailed her 6 times and never got a response. It seems like to me that they are extremely lazy and dont feel like going through things so they mark them as (pilled) or (stained) and by the way most of the people there dont even speak ENGLISH!!!!!

I will no longer shop here, they are very picky at what they buy and pass on the good stuff and only pay about 25% of what they sell the item for. The YOUNG staff is rude, short, and to busy talking to themselves to pay any mind to the customers. I have heard this from many of people. The male Owner always seemed put out when you asked him something or brought in clothes, like you are making him work, whatever I will take my Business to other places for sure. Do not shop there.

I love this store, you bring in your gently used kids clothes and equipment and walk out with some cash. Make sure they are all clean and dont have any stains or they will not buy them, but they will buy your good items and its so easy!

When you are dealing with a used kids clothes store you can not expect to get what you paid for the item brand new, if you take a look at the prices they have on the stuff for sale you will see that you can get a really cute and name brand outfit for under $10.00 so with that said you know that this place rocks, check them out and decide for your self!

I brought 13 brand new 16 dollar outfits with tags on 'em and a unopened bag of 84 ct huggies there today.
After waiting an hour the offered me 27.00. Those people are sick in the head and not to mention rude!!!! They will sell stuff that is dirty but if you bring anything in they hold it under this light thingy that shows the invisible spots and deny you.

Save your gas and time.

They are overpriced anyhow.

I have been cleaning out my closets of baby clothes for quite some time now and at first thought OUAC was really helpful. It was a different concept to recieve cash versus just giving things away to Goodwill.
But..after bringing my stuff there about five times i have come to find it more of a hassle.
They have refused brand new stuff, claiming it was used (their favorite word is "pilling"), when the only thing i did was take off a tag! They refused an addidas dress claiming the same, when i realized i forgot the undies to it, the next time i was given cash no problem. It all depends on who is behind the counter, and how they are feeling that day.
I have been quoted 2.50 one day on an item, and a week later 5 dollars. It is worth it to fight with them, if you know your item is worth more than you are being quoted. They claim that there is no in demand sizes, but i had a box full of newborn items marked as no's with no explaination. The woman admited that the section was full, but when I understandingly asked for the next closet boutique i was rudely and loosely given an answer. The store is always a week behind in bins as well. The Children's Place is there favorite brand to buy...expect higher returns, and you will most likely recieve less for somehting you paid double the price for.
My suggestion find another second hand boutique to give your stuff to. I always leave feeling like I did something wrong, and that they were doing me a favor when really the store runs on what we sell to them.

This is a fun little store to visit when you've got some time to scour the racks. You can't just stop in for a minute to try and pick up something cute. It's really worth your time to go through each and every piece, as everything is previously owned. The prices are great because they are used clothes, but even greater when they have half off days! You can get a whole closet of gently used baby clothes for a song. They have a cute little play area for the kids as well, so they will be kept busy while you go treasure hunting. The location isn't in the BEST area, but the selection of items makes up for that.
