Resale Beats Retail
The only thing better than shopping is getting a bargain, and this economy has introduced that little secret to many more Americans.
Kris Gutierrez with Fox News filmed a piece on how used furniture stores are thriving in the current economy. According to his numbers, furniture consignment sales have increased %13 in the last two years; retail sales have dropped 7.5% during the same time.
Kris interviewed store owners, shoppers, and sellers, and as Kris says, “It’s a win-win for everyone”. Because of the economy people are looking to make some extra cash and selling luxury or unused items is one way to do it. For shoppers looking to buy there’s a lot more to choose from, and the store owners are seeing a lot more movement in and out of the stores.
At consignment stores around the country you’ll find furniture staples like tables or chairs, decorative or luxury items, and children’s or office furniture. Now that you’ve learned the secret, get your smart shopper on, and head over to the nearest furniture consignment store and give it a try. Or, try it online at CubeKing.com.
Conclusion: Bargain shopping is smart, effective and enjoyable.
