About This Report


Operators in the Second-Hand Goods Stores industry sell used items such as clothing, furniture, electrical equipment, books and homeware in stores and online. The industry excludes enterprises that operate solely online. The industry appears to have thrived in the face of difficult economic circumstances over the past five years. High levels of unemployment, low confidence and constrained incomes at the beginning of the period drove consumers to seek out bargains in an effort to reduce their expenditure. Industry revenue therefore grew following the recession due to its long-lasting effects.

Second-hand goods stores collect or purchase used merchandise and sell it to consumers. The industry excludes pawnshops, used car retailers and retailers selling second-hand parts for automobiles, recreational vehicles, motorcycles and boats.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
