Resale is booming and Rebag is capitalizing on it.
The digitally-native designer handbag reseller opened its eighth brick-and-mortar location, at Roosevelt Field mall, Garden City, New York. It is Rebag’s fourth retail location in the New York metro area and follows the company’s recent announcement of securing $25 million in Series C funding.
The new store features such signature Rebag elements as a wall devoted to Hermes and Birken bags and the “Rebag bar,” where customers can sell a bag or exchange a previous purchase for at least 70% of the original price. Customers can also shop the entire online and in-store assortment, which includes hundreds of designer bags.
Similar to Rebag’s other physical stores, the new location features pastel yellow hues, with an illuminated Rebag emblem welcoming shoppers. The space was designed by Red Antler and Small Office.
Rebag said its data-driven strategy has led it to open stores in areas of high online adoption, with plans to increase that portfolio to 30 locations in the medium term,
“We always consider our customers when we plan our retail expansions, and are looking forward to making Rebag accessible to the Long Island community,” says Charles Gorra, CEO and Founder of Rebag. “We’re especially thrilled to be part of the largest and most esteemed mall in New York.”
