Ikea will buy back your furniture and give you vouchers in return

Homestore Ikea has said it will now buy back your furniture and give the products a second life.

In an effort to be more sustainable, the Scandinavian shop launched the new scheme this May after putting it on hold on Black Friday last year.

When returning unwanted, pre-loved items, customers will get an Ikea voucher in return.

There are some provisions for the furniture, and depending on the condition, depends on how much you get back.

If it is like new, with no scratches, you will get 50% of the original price.

If it is very good, with a few scratches, you will get 40% of the original price and if it is well-loved you get 30%.

Hege Saebjornsen, an environmental and sustainability expert at Ikea, told the BBC: “I’m not saying we have all the answers, but we learned enough from the pilots to tell us that this could be something of real value to us and our customers.”
