SPRINGFIELD — Tots to Teens Resale Clothing sells new and gently used clothing for all ages.

Located at 2751 Old Home Road in Unit A, the business was established by sisters Theresa Williams and Victoria Lanik in 1991.

The two-story shop offers ample parking and is located behind the drugstore off Canton Road, north of state Route 224.

“We have been in this business a long time, first in Akron, and will have served the community for 22 years in March,” said Williams. “We now have second-generation customers buying items. As soon as people walk in the door, they notice how clean it is and how nice the place is. We wash and iron everything.”

The shop carries clothing, coats and boots not only for children from newborn to teens, but also for men and women in sizes ranging from extra small to 4X. Also available are maternity wear, nurses scrubs, formal dresses, purses, shoes, children’s books, movies and toys. The store does not carry furniture.

Williams said the shop attracts shoppers of all ages, including grandparents who come in to buy clothing for their grandchildren.

“Our prices are among the lowest around, and we have new things that still have price tags on them,” said Williams. “One of the most expensive items is a new pair of jeans priced at $8.”

Williams added the state of the economy has attracted shoppers because Tots to Teens offers great deals for children that grow out of things quickly and for teens looking for prom dresses, which she said are priced at $30 or less.

“We also have lots of boys and men’s clothing, from jeans and T-shirts to dress pants, shirts and some suits,” she said. “There are more men who have been unemployed that are looking for work who come to shop here.”

Williams said the store also has a lot of items in plus sizes for men and women.

Tots to Teens accepts items for store credit and is accepting winter coats and boots, but Williams suggested anyone wishing to bring items in should call first.

Tots to Teens is open Mondays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The business can be reached at 330-733-5008.
