Interior designers rejoice! IKEA Canada wants to buy back your gently used furniture and will offer up to double the sell-back value via in-store credit.
In a press release on Tuesday, the company confirmed that the new change is an attempt to tackle waste while promoting sustainable living.
Starting on Black Friday, IKEA will take your old furniture off your hands in exchange for store credit, which can be spent on updating your home decor.
While official details are yet to be confirmed, the program’s initial soft launch allowed customers to get a price for their used furniture via an online form.
Sellers would upload photos of their items to the IKEA website and a staff member would respond with an in-store credit offer based on the furniture’s condition.
Items such as dressers, cabinets, drawers, sideboards, desks, chairs and more are all included in the buy-back program.
After an offer has been accepted, customers can take their store credit to a nearby IKEA store to buy something new.
The IKEA Canada Black Friday campaign will run from mid-November until the end of the month.
