Racked featured Buffalo Exchange Chelsea store manager, Justin Goellner in “Beacon’s Closet, Buffalo Exchange, and the Big Business of Selling Your Old Clothes” on May 28, 2015: “…The average shopper might not know the true value of their old clothing, but the buyers who assess the dregs of those shoppers’ closets certainly do. … stores like Buffalo Exchange … proliferate across the country, bringing in millions in revenue … These stores resonate with shoppers because they buy clothing for cash, as well as stock low-priced items for sale. They’ve become staple retail spots for regular shoppers, not just bargain hunters. … Goellner likens his job to “an art, not a science”… at Buffalo Exchange, Goellner says the store doesn’t have an exact price formula, but notes that buyers aim to have everything stay in an affordable window because “the store is supposed to feel like you are always getting a good deal.” … “If you bought a good piece, wore it twice, and aren’t sure if you’re going to wear it again, just sell it back quickly! Don’t hold it,” Goellner says. …”
