A lot will come from returned and damaged products.
They are reducing their losses. Between write offs and damaged goods they would have to eat, cannot sell as new, its just good business.
How many “ladies” have a bunch of unworn dresses with the tags still in them, that don’t fit, wrong style, etc.
Now they can bring them back for credit, get ‘new’ and Nordstrom doesn’t have the loss of a product they can’t sell as new.

Yeah how many tag on clothes do you men out there have? How many pairs of shoes? Only thing that sits and does not get much use is the one suit I have left with the appropriate support clothing.

We used to donate the lost and found clothes to a local second hand shop.
Even here in Wyoming, there were a large number of ladies dresses and outfits with the tag still hanging on them.
When I lived in the Denver area, I would help out with some charity drives, again a surprisingly high number of name brands that were new.
This is Nordstroms, mostly ladies clothing, you’re not going to find work clothes in there.

I think it’s better than keeping clothes at home that no one else is wearing anyway. It’s better to sell it or give it for reuse, in many countries people give their unworn clothes for reuse and I think it’s a nice idea to do the same.

I always reuse my old clothes and make from them a blanket or a new T-shirt. Of course, I buy the new ones but I can wear clothes even from a second-hand store. I wear mostly sports clothing because I feel comfortable and self-confident. I think sports clothing is the best way to look awesome and stylish and you don’t need to pay much for looking good. Recently I bought two cool new sweatshirts and I’m very happy with them because with the right accessories I create a perfect outfit. All the clothes are made from cotton and are high-quality.

Worn out tee-shirts become cleaning cloths for really dirty jobs, that can be disposed of once no longer useful.
Worn out jeans, tie them into big knots, new dog toys!
My wife recently took in a bunch of jewelry she does not wear anymore to a pawn shop and got a few hundred dollars for it.
