Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
More and more customers across the country are choosing to ‘shop green’ and ‘save green’ by shopping in consignment and resale shops where they know they’ll find prices 50% - 80% off retail, but they also want the convenience of shopping online. Many consignment and resale shop owners are seizing this opportunity to expand their businesses by increasing their visibility online and creating their own online consignment stores through ConsignmentChic.com, which ranks extremely high in search engine results for consignment related terms. No longer is it enough to be listed in the phone book; now business owners realize that it is imperative to have a highly visible online presence as well.
“For any resale store, being found on the internet and increasing sales in the store and online is a high priority. Consignment Chic has proven to be an asset to our store, Otra Vez Couture Consignment, in San Antonio, Texas. Not only by helping us improve our internet ranking when we linked to them on our website but also by giving us a venue to sell our items online. We highly, highly recommend Consignment Chic to all resale stores as a way to help them grow their businesses,” explains Liz Moody, Store Manager of Otra Vez Couture Consignment.

Consignment Chic is thrilled to announce that the following stores have recently partnered with ConsignmentChic.com to sell online:
Lauri Fitzpatrick, Owner of Wears Like New with three locations in Pennsylvania, says, “Consignment Chic is one of the best ideas we've had in our industry during the 20 years I've been in it. Not only is it easy to buy items on Consignment Chic, but as a busy store owner, it takes the unknown out of selling online as well. We are so excited to be a part of Consignment Chic. We are pleased with the exposure we are getting from the web site. The concept is amazing. It will only get better as more shops come on board. Not sure why any shop would not want to be a part of Consignment Chic...it's genius!”
