J.C. Penney Now Selling Second-Hand Clothing
Second-hand clothing has been trending for a while now. Because it's mostly trends from 20-30 years ago, I'm pretty sure that is has something to do with Stranger Things, but I could be wrong.
Apparently, all the big chain clothing stores are doing whatever it takes to get new patrons into their stores. J.C. Penney just announced that they will be having 30 locations of what it is calling thredUP, which will carry sought-after second-hand women's clothing and handbags, with offerings being refreshed and updated weekly.
“While there are more secondhand shoppers than ever before, we’ll continue to test and evaluate how this resonates with customers. We’re excited about the prospect of creating a new in-store experience that makes high-end brands attainable, as well as catering to eco-minded consumers who want more sustainable options in their wardrobe," Michelle Wlazlo, Executive Vice President and Chief Merchant for J.C. Penney, said in a release.
This is after J.C. Penney announced earlier this year that they were closing over two dozen locations across the country. Their goal is to reinvent the experience of their brand and make room for what's to come. Glad they are forward-thinking, but is it too late?
I don't think the Dartmouth Mall has an experience quite like this yet, so I'm hoping they bringing it to that J.C. Penney location, or perhaps the one at Wareham Crossing.
Would you part take in this shopping experience if they brought it to the SouthCoast?
While I don't have a need for women's clothing, I know lots of my friends that would definitely like to take a peek at what they are offering.
