Target has announced that it will be giving store credit to its customers in exchange for used clothing. The project is being implemented with ThredUp, an online consignment store, which accepts "high-quality, children's, or women's clothing, bags, and shoes," in return for Target gift cards, according to KARE 11 News.
Customers who would like to participate in the program would simply need to drop off their used goods at any target store. The items can also be shipped via FedEx or UPS. Target will even pay for the shipping fee.
However, Target states that not all items that are sent will be accepted. To date, ThredUp states that less than 50 percent of the items donated are being accepted. There's no cause for worry, however, since unwanted donations will be "recycled responsibly." Customers whose items are not accepted can also request for the donations to be sent back, reports Business Insider.
For the items that do get accepted, the corresponding store credit will vary. Items listed under $60 dollars will be paid upfront, while those listed for more than $60 will be listed as consignment.
Customers whose donations are accepted will receive an email about which items have been accepted within 25 days. The target gift cards that correspond to the accepted donations will be sent through registered mail.
