Dear Valuable STA Customers:
After 37 years in business, Second Time Around will close its doors on July 31, 2015. As many of you may know, the widening of the intersection of PCH and Hawthorne will consume the property from which STA operates. We have been unsuccessful in obtaining a new location that would allow us to continue to serve you. We realize you may still have inventory in our store and want to assure you that your items are as important to us as they are to you.
For almost four decades, STA has clothed and accessorized fashion-forward moms, professionals and thrifty FashioniSTAs. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with all of you stylish ladies. STA represents not just women’s fashion but heart, warmth and friends. We are extremely proud of the professional and personal relationships that grew and fostered in our store. We enjoyed hosting events in our cozy store that included style workshops, whine-free evenings, fundraisers and the wonderful memories of all the Re-Fashion Shows.
Beginning July 10th we will incrementally start to discount the inventory until we close on July 31st. To our consigning customers: Any discounts offered will not impact your payout. You will receive 50% of the tiered price as per your contract. We will be reducing the STA portion so that your inventory sells and you receive the contracted amount.
Please be assured we have planned for this to be a very smooth transition and are diligently working toward its fruition. We need your help. Below is the consignment procedure as it pertains to each customer. The store will close on July 31st and remain at this location through August 7th. If you have no inventory, please contact us for your payout (see below). If you do have inventory at STA, your items plus any payout can be picked up after we close (see below).
All of us at STA would like to thank you for your years of loyal patronage. The success of Second Time Around is a result of you entrusting us with your fashionable attire to sell to our valuable clients. Thank you and God bless you for your trust and support.
