Dick’s Sporting Goods and its Public Lands banner are getting into the used gear market. The retailer on Wednesday announced the launch of an in-store buyback program for outdoor gear, including hard and soft goods in select markets.
The pilot program, in partnership with online platform Out&Back, is available in two markets: Denver (where Out&Back is headquartered) and Pittsburgh (close to where Dick’s is headquartered). The program will launch at Public Lands’ Pittsburgh store on Friday.
Out&Back will accept gear at certain Dick’s and Public Lands stores Friday through Sunday in exchange for “instant cash payments.” The program accepts products like tents, backpacks, outerwear, skis and snowboards, and more categories will be added “as the partnership evolves,” according to a press release.Retail Dive
