Birmingham-based 2 nd & Charles keeps growing with its newest store opening in Dothan, Alabama. The store, located at 3525 Ross Clark Circle, is part of a revitalization of the Northside Mall Shopping Center area and joins other national retail and restaurant brands that have been coming to Dothan in recent years.

2 nd & Charles provides customers an easy way to reuse and recycle their old books, audio books, CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray, video games, game systems, vinyl records, comic books, iPods and iPads, eReaders, and more by offering cash or store credit for gently used items.

“A 2 nd & Charles experience is part shopping, part exploration, and part discovery,” says Jeff Skipper, Vice President of Marketing. “When Dothan customers see the huge variety of items replenished daily for sale, it’s sure to become the destination for passionate readers, gamers, movie buffs, bargain hunters and collectors alike.”

Customers wishing to sell used items can check them in upon entering the store. While their merchandise is being evaluated, they can shop the expansive selection of new and gently used items. Once trade-ins are processed, customers can choose to redeem their items for cash or store credit.
