Perhaps the biggest impediment to the growth of the used goods industry is the lack of a wholesale market.
SIMPLY PUT, IT’S HARD TO BUY PRODUCTS FOR RESALE.
Thrift stores, estate sales, and garage sales offer products at a wholesale price point – with enough room for a good markup. But you cannot order the styles and quantities you’ll need for your used clothing boutique from a thrift store. Given the disgusting excess of used goods in this country, we thought that was a shame.
