Who is Second Chance?

Second Chance Products opened for business on February 1st, 2019 with co-owners and Cedar Valley natives Jacob Nanke and Nicholas Graham. Second Chance Products purchases liquidated returns by the truck load from department stores and marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart, Wayfair, etc.  All of the items that we have for sale have been purchased and returned once for various unknown reasons. When we get a shipment of liquidated returns our team individually sorts through each item and inspects it for condition, quality, cleanliness, and general function.  Most items are new with box opened, lightly used, or have light damage from shipping and are in excellent condition with all pieces included. We pride ourselves on operating with high integrity and transparency within our business. Our aim is to bring quality products to the Cedar Valley at very low and fair prices.
