This month, Michael’s, The Consignment Shop for Women introduces Drop & Shop, an exciting new shopping incentive program. The phrase lends a fresh interpretation to what loyal customers have done for years. Simply put, when you Drop & Shop at Michael’s, you are consigning and shopping all in one
We recycle cans and bottles, use eco-friendly household products, drive electric cars, yet so many fashion conscious women toss last year’s designer duds without a second thought. In 2012, shoppers spent $288 billion on luxury goods and only 30 percent of those items were worn the following year.
Textiles represent a mind boggling 386 million pounds of garbage each year in NYC landfills alone.
Consignment is the ultimate sustainable concept and Michael’s, The Consignment Shop for Women has been doing it for sixty years,Long before recycling was in vogue.
One of the busiest times of the year is right after the holidays when customers bring in a slew of never worn gifts. And here’s the kicker – consign with Michael’s and pocket 50% of the selling price or use the cash to buy new items. That’s what we call fashionable recycling!
“To be honest, I put off cleaning out my closet as long as I can,” remarks PJ Gach, fashion editor and founder of thequeenofstyle.com. “But once I start, I can’t stop. It’s such a thrill to find my favorite LBD that has fallen to the back of my closet and a fabulous pair of trousers, new with tag. Each spring I compile a heap of lightly worn designer threads to consign and I always end up leaving with a special treasure from someone else’s closet.”
“Everyone wins — women get the most value from their luxury fashions,” says Michael’s Consignment co-owner Tammy Fluhr-Gates, “and landfills diminish.”
“Consignment shops contain incredible treasures that most likely cannot be found at
other establishments,” says Michael’s Consignment owner, Laura Fluhr. “All of the
items in our store come with a unique history.”
Drop & Shop rewards are exclusive monthly deals and/or special gifts. Drop & Shop this February and enjoy 10% off a purchase within 30 days, in March, receive a gift with purchase.
