SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Wearing and finding designer clothing got a bit more affordable in Scarsdale recently with Second Time Around, an upscale consignment company, opening its doors on Spencer Place.
Second Time Around carries new and nearly new designer clothing and accessories at resale prices. Designers that are carried include Chanel, Dolce and Gabbana and Jimmy Choo.
The new store is already a hit with shoppers, who commented on the quality of selection and price on Friday.
“I just stopped in to check it out, and I was floored by the quality of everything,” Eastchester resident Lauren Browne, 50, said. “I didn’t have the time to go through everything today, but I’ll be back.”
The first Second Time Around location was established in Boston than four decades ago. They’ve opened up an additional 45 stores since, spread across the country.
Bill Soncini, the president of Second Time Around, said that Scarsdale has been an accommodating home since they opened their doors last week.
“We are excited to be a part of the community,” he said. “The reaction from the village has been overwhelmingly positive. Our brand of high end consignment will fit in well with Scarsdale shoppers.”
Items at Second Time Around are marked down as much as 70 percent from their original price. The shelves and racks are constantly being updated and rotated, so shoppers get a different experience with each visit.
“This store is something that fits quite well in Scarsdale. I think it’s a need the village didn’t have before,” resident Kerri Scott said. “It should be a popular store, it’ll do well here.”
