CLOTHING CONSIGNMENT POLICES:
Our policy and guidelines for clothing consignments brought in to our consignment
processing department are as follows:
1. Consignors will be accepted on a membership basis for an annual fee of $10
per year. This fee will be an automatic deduction from your account on the
anniversary of your membership. The initial $10 membership fee will be deducted
from your account within 3 days of the date of this contract. In addition, a drop-off
fee of $2.50 will be charged to your account each and every time a consignment
is brought in, regardless of size.
2. All items brought in for consignment must be clean, in season, in style, and in
excellent condition. All items must be brought in ironed and on hangers, as
wrinkles do not sell! Our job is to sell clothes, not clean or repair them. Your job is
to bring us clothing in a condition to be sold. Please do not bring your clothes in on
hangers which need to be returned. If you would like wire hangers, we can supply
you with all that you need prior to or at the time you bring in your consignment.
3. Your consignment will go through our Processing Assembly Line, which
includes several inspections. Our first Processor inspects for very obvious
problems--very bad condition, out-of-style, inexpensive brands, etc. Any items that
are rejected and donated at this stage will not be itemized on your list. Only the
number of items donated will be noted on your drop-off record. The remaining
items go through several more stages, which include thorough inspections,
changing hangers, determining sizes, entering into the computer, pricing, and a
final inspection before going onto the sales floor. Items found during processing
that are not suitable for consignment will be rejected. Reasons why items may be
donated include the following: clothes are out of season, need cleaning or
mending, have spots, are out of style, etc. In addition, any items that have been
accepted for consignment will be donated for the following reasons:
i) Items are considered to be expired after being in the store 70 days and have not
ii) Due to change of season, an item is no longer "in season";
iii) For any other reason the item is deemed not saleable.
Any items donated will be donated in your name, for which you may pick up a
Donation Tax Receipt after January 15th for the preceding year.
4. We determine pricing. When items are sold, you will receive 40% of the selling
price. Our price tags are dated. The date on the tag is the date that the item is put
out in the store. After it has been out for 30 days, the price is reduced by 25%,
after 45 days, 50% and 60 days 75% (our statistics show that 74% of the items
we process do sell at full price). Any item not sold will be donated. You may pick
up a check for money due Monday through Saturday from 9:00PM until 6:00PM,
or you may use credit that you have on your account to purchase merchandise in
our store, in any department, any day, any time during normal store hours.
5. From time to time A SECOND LOOK may, at its own discretion, decide to "fix"
an item rather than donate it, or to "hold" an item that is out of season, rather than
donate it. Due to the increased costs incurred by A SECOND LOOK in the way of
employee costs to fix an item or storage costs for holding, your consignment
percentage, on these items only, will be 35%.
6. A SECOND LOOK does not accept jewelry on consignment.
7. Management will not call when items have expired or sold. You must assume
responsibility for checking on the status of your consignment. Management will
take reasonable care of all merchandise, but responsibility for theft, damage from
fire, water, etc., will not be assumed. items brought in for consignment must be
clean, in season, in current style, and in excellent condition (new or almost new).
Consignments are taken either by appointment or on a drop-off basis
8. You may call to check on your account at any time during normal business
hours of 9:00AM to 9:00PM Monday through Saturday and 12:00PM to 5:00PM
Sunday. For your convenience, you may also check your account balance online at
any time; please speak to a representative at A SECOND LOOK to create a login
