Nordstrom Launches Secondhand Clothing Sales
The Seattle-based department store becomes the latest retailer to dabble in the burgeoning resale market.
NEW YORK, United States — Nordstrom is planning to sell secondhand luxury clothes online and at its New York flagship, becoming the latest traditional retailer to experiment with the fast-growing resale market.
Opening January 31, Nordstrom’s “See You Tomorrow” store will offer shoppers secondhand pieces from brands like Burberry, Thom Browne, Isabel Marant, Off-White and Adidas. The resale service, which is slated for a six-month run but could be extended, will also, accept pre-owned products from customers to sell in exchange for Nordstrom gift cards.However, after-sales rose in 2018, Nordstrom has seen uneven progress in recent quarters. Multi-brand retailers are suffering as a group, as consumers can find
many of the same products online and brands drive more sales through their own websites and stores.
