Rags to Riches

It’s that time again… Spring-cleaning is here and C&A is gearing up to clean out our closets and make room for new summer must-haves. We all love to say, “out with the old, in with the new!” But, who knew you could actually make money off of your gently used clothing and accessories to help pay for those new additions? That’s right, no more excuses! Buffalo Exchange is here to help you conquer spring-cleaning AND capitalize on your used goods.

blog-rags-to-richesYou can bring your used clothing, shoes, and accessories into any Buffalo Exchange location at any time. Usually, there is about a 15-minute wait to have one of the trained store merchandisers sift through your items to determine which pieces are acceptable for resale. Once they decide which items they are able to sell, they price them accordingly…often at about half of their original retail price. Once the total selling cost of the items has been calculated, the store offers you either 30% of that total in cash or 50% of it in store credit.

For example, if you brought in a dress that Buffalo decided to resell for $48, you could either walk away with $24 in store credit or $14.40 in cash in exchange for the item.

As the saying goes, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” All of the items that you sell to Buffalo Exchange will be resold in the store for other customers to purchase. This means that your item could become someone else’s lucky vintage find. Pretty cool, huh?

We’re huge fans of Buffalo Exchange because of its convenience, selection, and affordability. The location at 1713 Chestnut Street in Center City is easily accessible by foot, subway, bus or car. Trust us, go clean out those closets and make a trip downtown so you can earn a little extra cash for the weekend. Happy shopping!
