IKEA will sell used furniture

Wpis dostępny jest także w języku: polski

The first second-hand furniture store of the IKEA chain will be opened in Eskilstuna, Sweden, in 2020. Before they go on sale, however, they will be refurbished by the company and will remain cheaper accordingly. The store will be located in the ReTuna gallery, where only second-hand items will be sold.

IKEA will enable its customers to donate used or unnecessary furniture to charity. The chain will also increase the availability of spare parts for self-repair in response to the growing interest in reducing excessive consumption and the circular economy. (H&M has also joined the group of brands promoting this idea.) By 2030, IKEA plans to be a fully sustainable business.

Sell-back furniture programme in Australia, Germany, Canada

A move in this direction were furniture buy-back programmes launched (lub initiated) by the Swedish concern in its chain stores in Australia, in Germany or Canada.

In exchange for second-hand, gently-used furniture, the company gave customers vouchers for their store. The second-hand furniture could be later bought in the IKEA stores, in the section with the goods from the exhibition or returned under warranty. The furniture usually spent two days in the store.

We will talk more about the interior design segment in Poland on November 5th during the PMR Forum Home & Garden Retail 2020.
