The Resilient Retail Game Plan Episode 78

Recommerce With Wilson Griffin and Karin Dillie of Recurate

Podcast show notes

Charity shops and thrift stores have been firm fixtures of the modern retail space since at least the 1950’s and primarily second-hand product websites like eBay and Craigslist are now both running into their mid-twenties – resale is certainly not a new phenomenon, but it’s in recent years that advances in technology and shifts in consumer habits have allowed the second, and even third-hand market to flourish like never before.

In episode 78 of The Resilient Retail Game Plan, I speak to Wilson Griffin and Karin Dillie of the tech-enabled resale service, Recurate. Recurate’s mission is to look at the whole life cycle of a product and extend it. They aim to build circularity through partnering with brands and retailers by putting the resale capacity of their own products back into their own hands.

In this podcast, we discuss how the perception and culture around shopping second-hand has changed and how conversations around supply chains and materials have become as important to some consumers as the products themselves. We also touch on how harnessing pre-existing resale infrastructure and peer-to-peer behaviour could help you see great returns with little risk or commitment to your bottom line.
