With the debut of a “Pre-Loved” program that enables customers to purchase secondhand items from the brand, Kate Spade New York has joined the long list of high-end brands incorporating ThredUp’s resale service.
Customers can buy and sell specific fashion items from any approved brand through a special ThredUp site in exchange for Kate Spade gift cards.
ThredUp’s resale-as-a-service (RaaS), which enables brands to connect to the company’s own operating platform to create a tailored resale experience, supports the project.
Besides, customers can generate a prepaid shipping label from the site, fill a shippable box with women’s or kid’s items and ship it to ThredUp, and receive shopping credit that can be redeemed online or in-store.
Kate Spade New York CEO and brand president, Liz Fraser said, “At Kate Spade New York, we are on a journey to driving progress by giving our products a second life and contributing to meaningful change.”
Also, they continue to identify ways that their brand can show up for their community and help minimize their footprint on the planet.
We are thrilled to partner with ThredUp, a company that shares our values, to work towards a more responsible future, she added.
