What is an Outdoor Consignment Store?

Outdoor consignment stores sell gently used outdoor gear and clothing on a commission basis for local Colorado Springs residents. As the seller, you bring your gear and clothes to the shop and we decide how much each piece is worth and we price the gear accordingly. When a customer buys the gear, the seller gets a predetermined percentage of the sales price.  The consignment store makes a percentage too.

What Percentage Does Your Consignment Store Charge?

MER, like most consignment shops in Colorado Springs, takes a percentage based on the actual selling price of an item. The percentage varies based on the price. The seller receives a higher percentage of more expensive items.  For specific details visit our How Consignment Works page.
