SALT LAKE CITY, UT—Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate, trademark resale brands of BaseCamp Franchising, announce that in 2013 they paid over $17 million to customers for their gently used clothes and accessories. According to the 2013 Annual Sales Report, Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate recycled more than 9 million used items from customers throughout the United States, paying cash up front or offering in-store credit.
“This is recycling at its best,” said Shauna Sloan, Founder of Kid to Kid. “Customers get paid to recycle things they’re no longer using which helps our environment by reducing waste. Shoppers save by paying only a fraction of the cost of what they would spend in retail. And millions of quality items are conveniently recycled to new homes.”
At Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate, used items cost about 70 percent less than merchandise commonly found in retail stores. Last year alone, their customers saved approximately $122 million by purchasing gently used over new.
With store locations in 30 states, Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate are growing franchises that offer upscale, gently used items. Kid to Kid buys and sells new and gently used children’s and maternity clothes, toys, books, and baby gear. For teens and young adults, Uptown Cheapskate buys and sells new and like-new name brand clothes, shoes, jewelry and handbags.
