Dallas Consignment Shops See Business Increase: While Retailers Try to Survive the Economic Storm. Wired PR News.com –
Many retailers and corporations alike have seen drastic decreases in sales, and have found themselves struggling to stay above water during the tough economic times. However, the financial crisis has helped increase business for consignment shops and sellers of used goods, due to an increase in the number of people scouting for ways to save money.
As reported by the Frisco Enterprise, consignment stores in and around the city of Dallas have had a considerable increase in patronage in the past few months. Some customers in cities like Frisco have turned to shops like Restyle, a re-seller of used name brand clothing, to maintain their fashion sense while staying within newly imposed budgets.
Some speculate that resale shops may be the optimal choice for holiday shoppers looking for more affordable means of gift giving this season. Individuals may also donate their used goods to resale shops in their area. Some provide financial incentives for donors or give to charitable organizations that benefit their communities.
