Consignment Program

Did you buy the best ultralight gear with the intention to hike the AT and never got around to it? Did you outgrow your current pack or jacket but it’s still in great shape?Are you ready for a gear upgrade and need a little cash to help you out?

All perfectly great reasons to bring your lightly used and loved gear to River Rock Outfitter. Our gear experts will evaluate the condition of the gear and assess its value. With your help we will determine a price that will make your wallet and our cash register happy!

Receiving Process: Complete the consignment form for each item you wish to sell in our consignment program or bring your item(s) into the store. We accept consignment gear preferably Monday through Wednesday during regular shop hours.  Some gear may need to be fully assembled for quality control.  Please ensure that you have budgeted enough time to assist staff with this process.  Once we have determined that the item is appropriate for our shop, we will have you sign a contract agreeing to our consignment policies.

Pricing & Evaluation: River Rock Outfitter prices your items based on our experience selling similar items in a similar condition. Pricing is prioritized based on seasonality of items being consigned, as well as demand. The pricing of your item(s) could take several days depending on current supply of items to be priced as well as seasonality of items to be consigned.  Before the item is placed on the sales floor, our employees will send you a message letting you know the price.  This is your opportunity to agree to move forward with the sell or to choose to pick it up.

For Sale: Now that your gear has been evaluated and you have agreed on pricing, it is time to put those items up for sale. Each item(s) will be tagged, merchandised and put up for sale in the store and online.  We will work hard on your behalf to sell the product to someone awesome! If your item(s) sells, a River Rock Outfitter sales associate will notify you.  If your item(s) does not sell after 3 months, the price of your item may be lowered, or the item will be returned to you. If it has not sold after 6 months, you will have the option to pick up the item or donate it to charity.  Once notified, the item must be picked up within 72 hours or it will be automatically donated to a local charity.
