Years ago the resale industry had a certain stigma about it that many people shied away from but the times have changed. Today the Resale Industry is all the rage! “Why” you may ask? Well, who doesn’t love “going green”, getting a little paycheck they didn’t work for, or finding super bargains in their local resale shop?!
Resale shops are plentiful these days! You’ll find many in your town, from kids, to women’s, men’s, furniture and more! Ask around because you’re likely to know many people who love their local resale shops and know the in’s and outs. Or of course, there’s a simply google search as well as app’s just for finding local resale shops!
Shopping resale has so many benefits and one of the best is the money you can save! Resale items are usually marked at 50-70% off their original retail prices AND you would be shocked at how much of their merchandise is brand new! Most resale shops only keep their merchandise for a specified amount of time so chances are, the longer the item has been on their sales floor, the better the deal for you! Ask the store owner or employee if there is a markdown system for sales as well as if they offer email, text and social media alerts for special sales and even new product sneak peeks!
One of the things we hear from our shoppers often is that shopping in the store and not spending a dime is “Simply The Best!” or as one shopper lovingly called it “Shopping Nirvana”! When you bring your items into resale shops for consignment you earn money! Some shops offer a buy outright option but most will offer a cash or credit option for the money you receive as your items sell. You typically will receive 40-50% of what the item sells for. Buy outrights usually offer a smaller percentage BUT higher end items like designer hand bags and clothing can offer up to 70% to the consignor. Ask your local shop for specifics as each store works differently.
Shopping Resale is seriously the best! Don’t miss out! Find your local resale shops and visit them often! They get new merchandise daily so the selection is always fresh! And bring a friend because, well, friends don’t let friends shop retail”!
