Your store or charity receives donations, and sorts through them to find that approximately only 20% of items are fit to sell in store. These products are put into store shelves, and rotated every 3-4 weeks if unsold.
The majority of donations that do not make it to store shelves, as well as those that are not sold off shelves, create unique challenges and opportunities for charity and used-product retailers. While this product cannot generate value on the floor of your retail operation, with the right partners, it can still generate value. Find out how with Bank & Vogue.
