PacSun, a retail chain with a strong Gen Z consumer base, is launching a resale program powered by ThredUp.
The retailer on Tuesday announced the launch of “Pre-Loved Pac,” a new program that will allow customers to resell their clothing via ThredUp’s clean-out kits. In return for PacSun credit, people can send in items from any brand across women’s and kid’s apparel, footwear and accessories. The items can be shipped to ThredUp for free with a prepaid shipping label. Customers can also shop pre-owned items via PacSun’s website.
“At Pacsun, we are committed to digital innovation and delivering services that our customers will love and use. Our community already embraced sustainable fashion, and we wanted to incorporate that into our brand experience,” said Mimi Ruiz, VP of e-commerce at PacSun. “When we learned about ThredUp’s RaaS offering, we thought it would be a great fit. By leveraging ThredUp’s proprietary technology, we were able to get our resale program up and running quickly, bringing value to our customers while also reducing our carbon footprint.”Foot Wear News
