So what’s next?
So, we’ve established that the outlets which buy used furniture are few and far between, & in all honesty, the handful that do can be very choosy with what they like to take. Moreover, it doesn’t help much that the sums offered can sometimes feel like a slap across the face with a wet fish.
With regards to shops that function in this way – buying furniture through a high street shop is a practise that is fast drying up. With shop floor space and rent rates continually on the rise – it’s just not economical for all business owners and merchants to fill up their space with random sofas and chairs in different shapes and sizes.
The internet also shoulders some of the blame for this with people using the web to search out every other question that comes to the mind. Why bother going down the high street when I can hop onto the internet and find a solution to my query there? Furniture businesses & shop owners are now also thinking the same thing. But all is far from lost, other than Pearlly there are still a number of avenues available to choose from.
