Once ‘n Again – that remarkable dual phase Shop that takes Folk’s no longer needed items, either on consignment or by means of an outright buy, and turns them around for the consuming public to find a new home for. They process literally thousands of items on a regular basis, ensure that the merchandise is resale worthy, and then efficiently arrange it in the spacious shopping arena provided by their two locations. one in Fairbury and one in Pontiac. They take in all categories of clothing, personal accessories. home furnishings including furniture, books, and a a lot more and their customers can find all the top lines in each category that are available and just waiting to fill someone’s wants and needs quest. Traci Hassett, the Owner and Specialty Guru, is always coming up with ways to give her patrons extra ways to save while providing help to the area with special considerations. Her August and September schedule of events is no exception with a notable program designed to help lesser advantaged children with their school supplies. Here’s what shoppers will find in this two month arrangement of specific savings that accompany Once ‘n Again’s everyday bargain style shopping:
August 8th – 13th – School Supply Drive – donate any of the following items (new and unopened) and receive a coupon from the Store – 2 packs of #2 pencils, 1 box of kleenex, 1 box anti-bacterial wipes, 1 pkge of 10 markers (thick, thin, or dry erase), 2 glue sticks, 10 folders-primary colors, zip-lock bags of any size, 1″ 3-ring binder, 2 spiral notebooks, 1 pkge colored pencils or highlighters, ear buds, post-it notes or index cards, book bags, ruler, scissors, or plastic pencil box.
During that week, if you stop in with a donation, you can get 20% off of your clothing purchase for the day and, hey, this is the place to look for that “back to school” clothing that you need for your kids.
All in all, these donations of school supplies will be forwarded to our local school counselors for distribution to kids that don’t have the basics that they need for the new school year and this annual program has done a lot of good things for some very thankful children in need.
August 15th – 27th – if you spend at least $10 you’ll receive $10 worth of in store “Comeback Bucks” that can be redeemed at the follow up event in September (see below)
September 5th – Labor Day Sale – save 20% on your purchase
September 12th – 17th – bring those “Comeback Bucks” from August and use them on your purchases anytime during this week
September 23rd & 24th – save additional $ on their Clearance Sale
Once ‘n Again is a comfortable, friendly place to pick up those things you’re looking for and its a great alternative to long distance “mall mayhem” – everyday is a savings day at their stores and the dates listed above provide the opportunity to make those savings even bigger. Go check it out and, if you have items you want to have a “new home” found for then talk to them about their consignment and cash programs.
