Ikea is known for getting economically-priced furniture into homes. Now the retailer is trying to get furniture out of homes.
The Swedish-based store is starting a second-hand resale program.
To run with Black Friday sales, Ikea will buy back some of its furniture items.
The only problem — the program is only available in the UK and Ireland.
Ikea furniture owners in those areas can take back certain products, and depending on the condition, get a voucher for up to 50% of the item’s original price.
The vouchers then can be spent at the Ikea store and have no expiration date, BBC News reported.
The furniture should be fully assembled and taken to the store for evaluation starting Nov. 27, CNN reported.
An item that appears “as new” will get 50% of the original price. “Very good” items will get 40% back. “Well used” will get the owner 30% back.
If an item can’t be resold, it will be recycled.
This isn’t a new initiative either. The company has been testing the program for over a year in select stores with the hopes of becoming “a fully circular and climate positive business by 2030,″ the BBC reported.
Not everything will be accepted into the program. Non-Ikea items, lighting, textiles and outdoor furniture are among the products that cannot be sold back according to the company’s terms and conditions.
