Recent survey finds nearly 90% of families will shop consignment for back-to-school
For Just Between Friends franchisees, there’s no better time of year than the summer’s end through the fall. Back-to-school season brings families to JBF sales in droves, which translates into more consignors, more inventory, bigger sales, more shoppers, and higher revenue potential.
- Nearly 80% have shopped consignment/resale in the past
- Nearly 50% say they save 75% or more shopping consignment and resale
- Nearly 60% have been shopping resale for back-to-school for more than three years
- More than 60% plan to sell items at consignment events or online to make money for back-to-school
“As families get ready to send the kids back to school, they start adding up the costs and realize that second-hand is the way to go,” says Shannon Wilburn, co-founder and CEO of Just Between Friends. “Each year, our fall consignment sales shatter attendance and revenue records because communities demand what we offer — high quality, gently used kids’ items and clothing at an affordable price. The best part is that through our sales, families can save and make money, which is an incredible help at a time of year when they have back-to-school expenses, which come to more than $500 for many.”
