Big News! thredUP Launches Retail Store with a Selection as Big as Texas
While we love the internet (who doesn’t?) we also like to meet in person, face-to-face, for real. We’re excited to announce the opening of our first-ever storefront in San Marcos, Texas. As you might have guessed, it’s not your typical thrift store.
Our CEO and Co-Founder, James Reinhart, says it best: “We’re changing the way people think about thrift. In fact, 50% of our customers had never shopped ‘used’ before trying thredUP online. With 85% of apparel still bought offline, stores help us reach those who need to ‘see it to believe it.’ We’ve found that once customers experience thredUP’s expectation-shattering quality standards, value and brands, they just keep coming back.”
We’ve been changing up the secondhand industry for a few years now, and felt like now was the right time to bring our one-of-a-kind approach to like-new clothes to the world of in-person thrift and consignment stores. Here’s what makes ours unique:
1. Spaces & Styles Backed by Science
Because tens of thousands of items sell on thredUP.com daily, we can determine what brands are trending in certain areas and cities—and stock our stores accordingly. Plus, store inventories are informed by our most active customers, so the more you shop, the more just-your-style pieces you’ll find.
2. A Revolving Door of Fresh Finds
Unlike traditional retail where styles are swapped out seasonally, we have the unique ability to tap into our constant influx of fresh inventory and 35,000 brands to create a new store every time you walk in the door.
3. Amazing Prices on Your Favorite Brands
We offer up to 90% off the largest selection of brands anywhere, including J.Crew, Madewell, Banana Republic, Michael Kors, Club Monaco, and Lululemon. With an average discount of 80% off, in our stores everything is on sale, all the time.
We’re so excited to bring thredUP stores to traditional malls, outlet centers, and main street shopping districts across the country. Check our FAQs for updates about future store openings.
