Shopping a GKS Preview Party

Welcome to our page about shopping the Growing Kids Sale Team Night Presale! We are so thankful to our teammates who help to make the sale more successful, and it is our pleasure to offer early shopping privileges to show our gratitude! If you read the information below, you will learn everything you need to know about shopping early!

SHOPPER POLICY (who may shop with a teammate):
For this spring 2021 event, our presale shopper policy has changed due to covid & capacity reasons.
Anytime an armband is required for entry at GKS, the armband will admit the person wearing it PLUS ONE, and that one may ONLY be that person’s spouse OR their child’s grandparent OR their child under 18. NO EXCEPTIONS. Unfortunately, we cannot allow multiple guests with the armband holder for this spring event while capacity is limited.

LOST ARMBAND POLICY (what happens if you lose your armband pass):
All consignors & teammates must present their armband to enter. In the event an armband is lost, the teammate may obtain a replacement pass by paying a $25 CASH fee.

Keys to Being a Savvy Shopper!
  • Mask Wearing: Any mask-wearing requirements for shoppers during the sale will follow whatever mandates are set forth by our city & state at that time, so as of right now, bring your mask! We will have some to purchase if you forget.

  • Shopping Bags: We provide large bags for you to carry your purchases while you shop, but you may wish to bring your own tote or laundry basket in case we run out, or so that we can load your purchases in your bag to take home.
    BRING YOUR OWN TOTE! We will not be able to provide blue shopping bags for this event due to sanitization reasons, so please bring your own shopping tote (other ideas are: wagons, strollers, laundry baskets or carts). If you forget yours, we will have BRAND NEW blue Ikea bags available for purchase (while supplies last), and they will be yours to take home with you!

  • Stroller Pass: If you bring a stroller or other item similar to items we sell, you will receive a GKS Stroller Pass as you enter so that we know it belongs to you.

  • Payments Accepted: We accept cash, Visa, Mastercard & Discover, including any debit cards which have the Visa, MC or Discover logo. Shoppers MUST show a Driver's License if paying by credit or debit.

  • Line to Enter: For the GKS Team Night & Presale, many consignors and teammates choose to arrive before we open and form a line to be one of the first few to get in the door (very similar to Black Friday at Best Buy! haha). Being a part of this line is entirely up to you!
    For this upcoming event, we will be helping to ensure that everyone is social distanced while in line.

  • Bring Measurements: We do not have dressing rooms available, so it may be helpful to you to bring your child's measurements (such as waist measurement, pant length, bottom of foot, etc), along with a measuring tape.

  • Buying a Large Item: Each of our large items (such as strollers, pack-n-plays, exer-saucers, furniture, swings, etc) will have a "Large Item Claim Ticket" connected to it. To buy one of those items, simply follow the instructions on the ticket. This will allow you to buy the item without carrying it while you shop, and you'll not need to move it until you're ready to load it in your vehicle. We always have at least one young man on duty to help you load the item if you need assistance. If the item will not fit in the vehicle you brought, please let us know so that we can instruct you on how to mark the item and come back for it later.

  • Floor Layout: Please be aware that you will find larger merchandise, like strollers, pack-n-plays, exer-saucers, car seats, outdoor play equipment and more, in break-out rooms located on the east side of the building.

  • Inspect Your Purchases: We work hard to make sure that only quality items make it to the sales floor. Unfortunately, sometimes an item will get through inspection that should not have been accepted. All sales are final, and since these are gently-used items, please thoroughly check each clothing item for blemishes before you purchase. If you find blemished items, we would appreciate you handing them to a GKS staff or teammate to be returned to the consignor. We also have a Toy Inspection Station located in the toy room, where a GKS teammate can help you test an electronic item or open a DVD before purchasing.

  • Carry-out Help: We are happy to assist you with loading your purchases in your vehicle. If this is something that would help you, please let your cashier know!

  • GKS T-shirts: Our collectible Growing Kids T-Shirts are available when our teammates and consignors shop (while supplies last). They are FREE to those who spend $200 or more, or can be purchased for $10 each. Each sale season features a new t-shirt color!

  • Will you help? Team Night & the Consignor Presale are some of our busiest shopping hours. Please assist us by using our center "sorting aisle" to sort through your finds, and returning un-wanted items to their appropriate rack or table. Thank you!!
