Chris & Shelia Brown, Owners

Family Owned Business

2nd Time Around is a family business owned and operated by Shelia and Chris Brown. The first location in Martin was opened in 2008. At that time, Chris and Shelia were mainly selling items recovered from storage units in and around Atlanta.

As new locations in Royston, Lavonia and Comer were added, the Browns expanded their offering of gently used merchandise to include new overstock items, seconds and returns from major retailers.

Every weekend, each location features special by-one-get-one free offers and sidewalk items at reduced prices. 2nd Time Around staff members are friendly and helpful. Stock at each store changes on a daily basis. And every other week on Saturday, individuals who spends $50 on a single purchase can bring their receipts to the stores to purchase gently used clothing at $.25 per piece.

In addition, new ‘buy one, get one free’ specials almost every weekend! Friendly staff, plenty of parking. Bargains galore.
