Consumers are increasingly interested in finding ways to resell or recycle products that they are no longer using:
“According to PA Consulting, the average U.S. home has $7,500 worth of unused items, which adds up to a wasted $875 billion that can be put back into the economy. But it seems that consumers would be interested in opportunities provided by retailers to resell, recycle and donate old items, in all categories.”
P.S. A changing culture means new challenges for suppliers and retailers alike. Improve your business model by signing yourself, or team members, up for one of 8th & Walton’s supplier training courses.
