Celebrating 20 Years in Business!

It's hard to believe it has been 20 years since I opened Act II. In October, 1991, I rented my current suite which was considered a "vanilla box": sheetrock walls and a concrete floor. With the help of family and friends, I painted the walls, had carpet installed, and opened for business on November 16, 1991. A lot of businesses have come and gone in our center since then, but Ol' Heidelberg and Subway remain - we now have 8 (soon 9) restaurants!! So much has changed in the fashion and retail industries, as well as the consignment industry, over these last 20 years! A lot has changed at Act II, as well, as we've adapted to meet the needs of our customers and responded to a changing business environment. However, what has not changed is our dedication to quality and first class customer service!

I certainly appreciate the efforts of all the talented, dedicated employees who have helped build my business over the years. What a wonderful adventure this has been!

Thank you to Act II's many great consigners and customers - Act II continues to grow because of your referrals - thank you for your patronage!!

We look forward to providing a first class consignment marketplace for many years to come!

Act II Represented at National Conference

Recently Judy Chassay, Owner of Act II, attended the NARTS 24th Annual National Conference held this year at the Westin Galleria in Dallas, Texas, where over 500 consignment shops were represented from the U. S. and Canada. The four day conference is the industry's most comprehensive educational event of the year. Judy attended specialized resale workshops, stimulating networking sessions (one of which she moderated), and was inspired by a motivating keynote speech.

Judy has been a member of NARTS, the Association of Resale Professionals, for many years and has attended numerous national and regional conferences. "We have an ongoing commitment at Act II to continue our resale education, keep abreast of trends and issues related to the resale industry, and stay at the top of our profession," says Chassay. "I left the conference in Dallas with renewed energy and a multitude of invaluable ideas to help us provide exceptional service and quality merchandising to our customers."

Act II has been a part of Huntsville's retail scene since November 16, 1991. Established to provide the Tennessee Valley with a first class resale marketplace, Act II is nationally recognized as one of the best consignment businesses in Alabama. Act II features ladies' new and pre-owned apparel and accessories - offering customers everything from fabulous jeans to designer handbags, as well as a great selection of new fashion jewelry!

Spring 2011

Act II - a Trusted Name in Consignment for over 19 Years!

As temperatures warm and spring flowers bloom to adorn our landscape with natural beauty and vibrant colors, we know it's time to go through our closets!!

We now have seven restaurants in our shopping center - so parking is at a premium during lunch time! We do have a designated parking space in the back of the store for consignment drop offs. We have also started using the back door which is more convenient to our consignment processing area! (If the door is locked, just ring the door bell). In addition, we open at 9:00 in the morning and can also accept consignments by appointment after hours.

We've been receiving fabulous spring and summer merchandise daily - sizes 0 to 24. We have also received some great (new and nearly new) summer sandals - Talbots, Ann Taylor, Donald J. Pliner, Born, Clarks, Tommy Bahama, and White House Black Market. We've just received a shipment of new fashion jewelry and new watches, as well.

Stop in today and enjoy the thrill of the hunt at Act II - where treasures abound!
