HISTORY

1979 - The first Second to Nature is founded in 1979 in South Carolina as an in-home mastectomy fitting service.
 
1990 - Second to Nature - Greensboro opens as an in-home mastectomy fitting service.
 
 
2001 - Second to Nature moves from an in-home fitting service to a 2 room office on High Point Road (now Gate City Blvd.)
 
2002 - A Special Place, Inc. opens on Merritt Dr., offering wigs and hair replacement services. Later that year, Second to Nature partners with A Special Place to offer an all-in-one shopping experience for cancer patients. 
 
2004 - Second to Nature and A Special Place move historic State Street, just minutes from Moses Cone Hospital, the Regional Cancer Center, and downtown Greensboro. The larger boutique and location convenient to physcians and hospitals proved to be very advantageous to their growth.

 2010 - Responding to a need in the Roanoke, VA area, Second to Nature and A Special Place opened a second location, located in historic Lamplighter Mall.
