Lululemon is testing a resale program where shoppers can sell and buy used items

The leggings and sports bra maker announced Tuesday it is piloting a trade-in program in California and Texas next month, which it plans to expand to an online resale program in June.

Starting in May, Lululemon customers in California and Texas will be able to trade in gently used Lululemon items in a store or by mail in exchange for a Lululemon gift card.

The following month, those gently used items will start to be sold online to people who want to pay less and donít mind a bit of wear on their tops and bottoms. The company is calling the pilot ďLike New.Ē Lululemon is partnering with Trove, a business that already helps brands like Leviís and Patagonia build out resale marketplaces, to make it happen.

Lululemon says that all traded-in items will be cleaned, and the items that donít meet its quality standards will be recycled. The retailer says it will rely on shoppersí feedback in the pilot program before it scales it to other states and more stores.

I draw the line at used sports bras and leggings... They actually shouldn;t wash the used items and just open a store in Japan.

1. I'm confused, don't wash the used items and open a store in Japan?

Anyway, given the price and durability of their items, I think selling them used is a good idea. My granddaughters can recover some money on their cast-offs and buy bargains.

I shop at Goodwill myself.

2. This is a-bit off topic but....

You know those clothing collection bins next to gas stations and quick marts...

A LOT of those clothes are sent to Costa Rica and there are a zillion America Ropa stores selling used clothing. Itís so odd cuz itís called American when you know most of the clothes came from China originally.
