Walmart is throwing its hat into the fashion resale market as it announces a new landmark partnership with ThredUp.
ThredUp will now have a dedicated section on Walmart’s website, featuring over 750,000 pre-owned fashion items.
Garments ranging from womenswear, children’s clothing, handbags and shoes will be featured on Walmart.com, and only items deemed “new”, “like new” or “lightly used” will be featured.
“We are excited to join forces with Walmart to power a sustainable, secondhand shopping experience unlike any other,” ThredUp’s director of product management Jenn Volk said.
“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.”
This year alone ThredUp has partnered with fashion retailers Abercrombie & Fitch and Gap, but Walmart represents its largest tie up to date by some margin.
It has also partnered with Macy’s, JCPenney and J Crew’s Madewell brand over the past year.
The former has installed 40 physical pop-up shops within its store estate while JCPenney has installed 30, selling curated second hand brands at a major discount.
