This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in retailing used merchandise including children's and infants' clothing, kids' shoes, toys and maternity goods. A consignment shop accepts merchandise on a consignment basis, displays, markets and sells products paying the owners of the merchandise a percentage when and if the items are sold under agreements with the consignors. Shops essentially work on a commission if the goods sell. The majority of such shops pay the owners from 40 to 60% of the selling price, and have a policy of displaying goods anywhere from 30 to 90 days, although there are a wide range of policies across the country. Some consignment shops also purchase a variety of items outright from individual owners and/or wholesalers. "Resale is a multi-billion dollar a year industry.
