Walmart has teamed up with online resale platform ThredUp to offer nearly 750,000 pre-owned items on the website.

The retailer launched this initiative during the lockdown since the pandemic made customers become more budget-conscious.

Walmart highlighted that items have been carefully evaluated and selected by ThredUP for sale based on their overall quality and condition. Therefore, only pre-owned garments and shoes deemed “new” or “like new” are available on Walmart.com.

“Gently used” accessories and handbags are available as well.

We are excited to join forces with Walmart to power a sustainable, secondhand shopping experience unlike any other. From Calvin Klein and Nike to Coach and Michael Kors, this digital partnership enhances Walmart’s fashion offering with fresh brands at amazing prices that their customers will love

We’ve reported that H&M is more likely to soon launch Afound in Germany. The outlet is currently only available in two countries, but a third might be on its way. Earlier in 2018, the marketplace for deals started in Sweden and then expanded to the Netherlands one year later.
