Buffalo Exchange is Buying for Fall!

Summer flew by and fall is on the way! With all Buffalo Exchange stores now reopen, we’re looking to buy for fall and the best of all seasons. As the temps get cooler, we’re in need of sweaters, lightweight jackets, long-sleeved tees, blouses and button-ups, as well as great denim. Boots, cross-body bags, hats and beanies are definitely on our list as well. Don’t forget that we take jewelry and designer pieces like handbags, wallets and even sunglasses year-round! 

In case you haven’t heard, we’re currently buying by drop-off appointment only and we now offer payment through PayPal or a Digital Trade Card (but the payouts of 30% cash or 50% trade remain the same!). Here’s a little bit more about how the new process works:

  • Call your local store to make an appointment to drop off your items!
  • Please limit your cleanout to around 50 items.
  • Allow your items to sit untouched for 24 hours before dropping off.
  • Your items will sit overnight after you drop them off, so they may take up to 3 days to process.
  • No on-the-spot cash or trade payouts – you’ll receive contactless payment through Paypal or a Digital Trade Card. 
  • As always, be sure to bring along your ID and wear a mask in the store!
  • At this time, items will be processed immediately into inventory. We are unable to share final prices and you will not be able to reverse the transaction.

If you’re not quite ready to physically venture out to your local Buffalo Exchange, this is a great time to try out our Sell By Mail program! Just request a bag online, fill it with your items and send it out (for FREE!) with UPS. In a few short weeks, we’ll send your cash and trade totals directly to your inbox. We can’t wait to see the amazing things waiting in your closet!

Au Naturel

Beige, cream, gray and everything in-between, neutral shades are seasonless wardrobe staples. Right now, we’re particularly loving breezy midi dresses, short suits made of cotton and linen and comfy cropped pants that are perfect for any temperature.

Breezy Botanicals 

When it comes to warm-weather trends, botanical prints – particularly those with leaves – are your best fronds! Try them out in the form of a casual button-up or a flirty, retro-inspired dress.

Neons for Eons

The neon trend shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon and, honestly, we wouldn’t have it any other way — saturated day-glo hues are surprisingly versatile and can be muted or turned all the way up depending on your mood. Incorporate neons into your warm-weather wardrobe with a balance of long and short pieces: a trucker jacket paired with a mini skirt, graphic tees paired with joggers or a rad matching sweater and short-set!

Go for Gingham

We challenge you to tell us any print that’s more glorious for warm weather than gingham. This summertime staple simply never goes out of style! We love it in creative iterations like cropped pants and ruffle-detail skirts.

How to Shop at Buffalo Exchange: The New Normal Collage

Shopping and Social Distancing: How to Shop Safely at Buffalo Exchange

Whether you recently made an appointment to drop off your closet cleanout and now have a digital trade card burning a hole in your inbox or you’re just coveting a closet refresh, Buffalo Exchange is open for all your secondhand shopping needs! Our stores have adapted to the new world of social distancing and we’ve implemented some new guidelines to keep shopping secondhand safe for everyone. Read ahead for everything you need to know about the new normal of shopping at Buffalo Exchange! 

Here’s the TL DR  of what’s new in our stores:

  • Stores have reduced hours and limit the number of shoppers.
  • Masks are required! 
  • Socially distance and keep 6 feet between yourself and others.
  • Dressing rooms are closed (for now), but our exchange policy is extended
  • We offer contactless payment like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay (cash and card still accepted!)

Wear a Mask!

Before you head into your local Buffalo, keep in mind that many of our stores have reduced hours and are allowing a limited number of shoppers in at a time, so be sure to check your local Buffalo Exchange’s store hours. Once you’re good to go, remember to grab your mask! This is important and helps keep our stores safe: masks are required for customers and store employees alike, and must be worn covering your nose and your mouth through the duration of your time in the store.

Maintain Social Distancing

While you’re shopping around, please be mindful of others and do your best to keep the recommended 6 feet of space between yourself and your fellow shoppers. This may mean doubling back to check out a super cute top you saw on a rounder where someone else was shopping, but we want everyone to feel comfortable and uncrowded while they browse around for those one-of-a-kind finds Buffalo Exchange is known for. We’ll have social-distancing reminders posted around the store, but feel free to reach out to an employee if another customer isn’t giving you the space you need!

New Protocols for Trying On 

For the time being, our dressing rooms are closed — a bummer for those of us who love a good shopping montage, we know! But bear with us, we’ve extended our exchange policy to a full 10 days. With extra time to try on at home, you can say “yes!” to that dress or bring it back to return for store credit. Just remember to hold on to your receipt and keep the tags attached! As usual, sale items are still non-returnable.

For shoes and accessories, you’re still able to try on in-store — just place the items that don’t work out into the designated baskets, next to the shoe racks or on top of the jewelry counters. From there, our employees will sanitize the items before they’re placed back onto the sales floor.

Checking Out With Your Finds 

When you’re ready to purchase, you may notice things look a little different at the register: we’ve installed sneeze guards at checkout (and buy counters) as an extra safeguard. Once it comes time for payment, you can choose contactless payment methods like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and tap-to-pay credit cards. Don’t have one of these? We are still accepting credit cards and cash. Need to enter a pin? To reduce contact, we have disposable cotton swabs for you to use instead of pushing buttons directly on the card terminals. 

That’s it! With these new safety protocols in addition to a whole new way for customers to sell their closet cleanouts, we’re excited to welcome everyone back for some sustainable shopping. We appreciate all the support we received from the community and can’t wait to see you all back in the store again soon!
