It’s no secret that the main reason customers visit New Uses stores is because of the exceptional product within. Whether buying or selling their gently used furniture, small appliances, artwork and other household goods, customers know that New Uses’ focus is on quality.
Our inventory comes from our customers, people that have like-new, stylish items in their homes that they no longer need. They bring it to New Uses and our certified buyers evaluate each item, making sure that it fits the following criteria:
- Great condition
- Current styles
- Free of wear, tears, stains and other damage
- Freshly cleaned
- All parts included
Customers are presented with an offer of cash on-the-spot or a percentage more in store credit for the items the store wishes to purchase. Our point-of-sale software features a sophisticated buy matrix, which helps buyers make offers that are consistent and fit the margins of New Uses’ successful business model.
Just like they love making money by selling items to New Uses, customers love saving money by shopping at New Uses, too. That’s what resale is all about!
