Recycled clothing company Crossroads sees upswing in business
Mar '09
Crossroads Trading Co., a leading recycled clothing company based in Berkeley, has long been one of the best-kept secrets of stylish and fashionable women and men on a tight budget. Recently, the company has gained even more popularity and is now seeing an upswing in business as secondhand fashion gains new acceptance in a changing economic climate.

Crossroad Trading Company's 24 stores offer shoppers the ability to sell their gently used clothing for cash or trade credit at any of its stores. Its focus on buying current, gently used in-season attire means that the inventory often includes name brands like Gap, Banana Republic, Marc Jacobs, Betsey Johnson, Ben Sherman, Juicy Couture, Prada and Coach, all available for a fraction of original retail cost.

“There is a newfound interest not only in secondhand fashion, but recycling in general,” said Erin Wallace, Operations Manager for Crossroads. “By shopping at Crossroads, our customers can save money and feel good knowing they are keeping clothing out of landfill. These two benefits give us an edge in the current retail environment.”

Crossroads Trading Company (crossroadstrading.com) has been buying, selling and trading clothing in a friendly, fun and fashionable atmosphere since 1991. The winner of more than 40 “Best-Of” awards, the company is recognized for the high quality of recycled merchandise it sells. Its 24 retail locations span throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and Chicago.
