If you’ve spent the weekend at the first-ever Epic second-to-last-hand shop, you might be wondering what to do with your purchases.
It’s an experience many of us are familiar with from our childhood, but Epic’s second-generation stores are a little different.
The store is open 24 hours, seven days a week, and while the business model is based around a limited number of items and limited inventory, the store is staffed by people who have been in the business for years.
You’ll find employees in a variety of positions, from store managers to customer service agents.
“We’re doing everything we can to make our store the best it can be, and we want to make sure you feel comfortable,” said Epic’s store manager, Kim Tompkins.
Tompkins said that the second-year store manager and her team were inspired by a secondhand shop in the US, and had recently bought their first-generation store.
She said it was important for customers to be able to “make an informed choice”.
“I think we’re doing a great job in keeping customers informed about what we’re buying,” she said.
Epic stores will also sell the same goods as their first generation, with the exception of the price, but they will offer an array of items, from furniture to clothing to books.
They also offer a full range of health and beauty products, including nail polish, facial care and makeup.
For those looking for a more traditional second-home experience, the Epic store also sells a range of second- and third-hand items, including furniture, appliances and books.
Tompkin said they were always looking for ways to expand their business, and wanted to make a statement about the importance of their business model.
“We’ve really been inspired by secondhand shops, so it’s important that we are in the first group,” she explained.
Despite being a small business, Epic has secured a large investment from a company called K-Counters.
With a $100 million investment in their first store, and with plans to expand to a second, they are planning to open at least a dozen more stores in the coming years.
But if you’re just interested in buying your first second- to-last store, Epic is offering a few more things to consider before you buy.
If you’re not keen on an actual secondhand store, you can still shop at Epic’s online store, but there is a small charge for those who want to bring in their own supplies.
But if that’s not your thing, the online store is now closed, and the store manager will be posting about it on the store’s Facebook page.
Other than that, you should be able get your first hand store experience at Epic on November 30, 2018.
