Walmart is partnering with thredUP to get into the fashion resale market

The products and services mentioned below were selected independent of sales and advertising. However, Don't Waste Your Money may receive a small commission from the purchase of any products or services through an affiliate link to the retailer's website.

If you’re into resale shopping when it comes to your wardrobe, you’re about to get a brand new way to find bargains — and it’s all thanks to a store you already know.

While there’s no denying you can already find bargains at Walmart, the retailer now also has a partnership with thredUP, a re-commerce platform for fashion and accessories at mass-market prices.

Customers can now shop a special section of Walmart’s website to find nearly 750,000 pre-owned items including women’s and children’s clothing, accessories, footwear and handbags.

According to a press release, items available for sale have been evaluated and selected by thredUP based on their overall quality and condition. For one, only pre-owned clothing and shoes deemed “new” or “like new” by the company will be on sale. Accessories and handbags, meanwhile, will have a bit more leeway, as some of those items will be “gently used.”

When you buy thredUP items from Walmart, you’ll get free shipping on orders of $35 or more and free returns to Walmart stores or via thredUp.

“We are excited to join forces with Walmart to power a sustainable, secondhand shopping experience unlike any other,” Jenn Volk, director of product management, thredUP, said in a press release. “From Calvin Klein and Nike to Coach and Michael Kors, this digital partnership enhances Walmart’s fashion offering with fresh brands at amazing prices that their customers will love.”

A quick look at Walmart’s website shows thousands of items already for sale — everything from shoes and scarves to fancy dresses, jewelry and kids’ clothing.

In thredUp’s 2019 Annual Resale Report, GlobalData projected that the total secondhand apparel market would reach $51 billion by 2023 and, according to their upcoming 2020 Annual Resale Report, 70% of consumers have bought or are now willing to buy secondhand.

Have you ever shopped secondhand for clothing or other items?
