IKEA U.S. announced today the launch of a Buy Back & Resell service which will be piloted for a limited time at IKEA Conshohocken from August 30 – September 19, 2021.
The Buy Back & Resell service will give IKEA customers the opportunity to sell back their gently used IKEA furniture in exchange for IKEA store credit. Participants will be able to give their furniture a second life through resale in the store’s AS-IS section, providing an even more sustainable and affordable option for many people.
The Buy Back & Resell service is available for fully assembled and functional IKEA furniture only, and all products will be reviewed based on condition, age, and functionality. All recalled products and particular categories of products such as chests of drawers, will not be accepted. Additional information about the service and assessment process can be found at IKEA-USA.com/buyback.
“At IKEA, we are passionate about making sustainable living easy and affordable for the many, and want to be part of a future that’s better for both people and the planet,” says Jennifer Keesson, Country Sustainability Manager, IKEA U.S. “We hope the Buy Back & Resell service inspires our customers to live a more sustainable life at home while giving their used furniture another life and a second home.”
While this service will be a pilot program at IKEA Conshohocken, IKEA U.S. plans to roll out this service to additional select markets across the United States with the ultimate goal of making Buy Back & Resell a permanent service at all IKEA stores across the country in the future.
