"We can have a lot more inventory out on the floor. A lot more clothes which means more selection for the customers and then we feel that it is a little bit better location," says Tricia Arenz, Owner, Once Upon a Child.

They offer cash on the spot for all seasons of clothing, toys, and baby equipment.

They accept sizes preemie through youth 16.

Gateway to Science plans to build a brand new, larger science center.

The hope is to gain the land owned by the city near the community bowl.

The legislature appropriated five million dollars as a start.

"A larger facility will, you know, more exhibits, different types of exhibits, additional topics that we can cover. It will also give us programming areas that we currently don't have like a laboratory classroom," Beth Demke, Executive Director, Gateway to Science.

Demke says they hope to break ground next year.

The proposed science facility would be 50 thousand square feet.

Estimated cost for construction and exhibits is 30 million dollars.
