Yesterday, today and tomorrow
2nd Take is the leading second hand clothing consignment store franchise, specialising in international brands from Armani to Zara. Since the first store opened in 2010 2nd Take has achieved excellent brand recognition by working hard to build a strong brand that is synonymous with quality, authenticity and value. This innovative concept is now available as a franchise in South Africa. In addition to their brick and mortar boutique stores they also have a convenient online shop.

2nd Take is based on a true win-win business concept. Customers receive quality goods quality goods at a fraction of normal retail prices; suppliers are paid for items they no longer want; franchisees benefit from an opportunity to own a successful and profitable business and to be part of a powerful enterprise; the environment benefits as a result of a reduced human footprint through recycling and many charities benefit from ongoing generous clothing donations.
The concept under the spotlight
The 2nd Take concept has proven itself to be virtually recession proof. In fact, it is in tough times that there is a marked increase in the number of customers and suppliers who make use of the services provided. Stock is taken in on a consignment basis which is of significant benefit to the store owner in managing their cash flow. It is estimated that over 85 percent of 2nd Take customers are repeat customers. Considering the cost attached to attracting new customers, this is good for business. While specialising in international designer brands from Armani to Zara for women, men and kids, they also retail second-hand baby equipment and toys.
