Ikea is looking to buy its furniture back from customers.
Yes, you read that right.
The furniture retailer launched a “Buy Back & Resell” plan to buy customers’ gently used Ikea decor, like coffee tables, wardrobes and chairs. Ikea will give store credit and resell the items in the As-is department.
“We’ll buy it back, and you help pave the way toward sustainable living,” a statement on the company’s site reads.
The promotion will run at 37 of the company’s stores, including New Jersey’s two Ikea locations — Elizabeth and Paramus.
This service applies to used Ikea furniture that is fully assembled and functional with no modifications. However, there are many exceptions.
Non-Ikea products are not returnable under the new program.
The Swedish-founded furniture retailer currently operates 52 Ikea stores nationwide.
