Newmarket’s Glamour boutique launches preloved pop-up store

Used clothing sales are booming worldwide, with the category expected to be bigger than fast fashion within the decade. Newmarket boutique Glamour is tapping into this trend with a new pop-up area in-store where preloved Glamour items are accepted for resale.

The 2019 Resale Report from US clothing resale website Thredup says second-hand apparel will be bigger in the US than fast fashion within 10 years. The same report indicates more than one in three Gen Z shoppers will buy used clothing this year, versus less than one in five boomers or Gen X consumers.

Glamour sells occasionwear. Its new pop-up initiative will see items previously sold by Glamour to be assessed, then sold in-store and online on behalf of the customer. Upon selling, the customer can then choose to receive a cash payment or a slightly higher store credit.

"It really has ended up being quite a natural progression for the business. Initially we were concerned it could confuse our clients or even dilute the brand, but we listened and we know have delivered what they asked us for,” says owner and director Charone Mackessack. 

“We have created a beautiful space in-store and online where we can on-sell coveted pieces on their behalf and it all works together seamlessly." 

Glamour is a finalist in the Newmarket Business Awards. The full list of finalists is:
