Has your son outgrown his hockey skates again? Before reaching deep into your wallet to buy some brand new ones, bring them down to Cheapskates, where you can sell your sporting goods on consignment and find great deals on second-hand equipment in good condition.
Three locations meet all your sporting needs
Every Cheapskates location is a whirlwind of second-hand sporting goods, but each store specializes in just what you are looking for. At the original Cheapskates 1 on West 16th Avenue and Dunbar Street, shelves of ice skates, hockey equipment, soccer cleats, baseball stuff, weights and exercise accessories fill the store to the brim. Up Dunbar on the corner of West 17th Avenue, Cheapskates Too presents rows of bikes for all sizes, ages and athletic abilities. Two blocks further up Dunbar, Cheapskates 19 is the chain’s most eclectic store. Find and sell camping gear, inline skates, golf equipment, racquet sports stuff, wet suits, lifejackets and ski and snowboard equipment.
Make money by turning your sports trash into treasure!
As a consignment store, Cheapskates gives individual sellers the lion’s share of the profits. How does it work? Bring your still-in-usable-condition bicycle, baseball bat or backpack to the friendly Cheapskates staff, who will register your contact information and help you to price your items (although you have the final say). If you change your mind before anyone buys your stuff, you can take it home at no cost to you. When someone does buy your item, Cheapskates deducts a 35-per-cent commission (with a maximum of $95) and mails you a cheque for the balance. Cheapskates also gives buyers a great deal by lowering the price by 10 per cent each week.
