IKEA starts selling used furniture

IKEA is selling its used products from June 15, as it launches its Second Life for Furniture programme also in Hungary, the Swedish furniture and home design product chain announced on Monday.

The Hungarian IKEA said as early as January last year that it would introduce its second-hand furniture service which had been tested in the Czech and Slovak markets, but did not give an exact starting date.

IKEA is buying back its used products at near 30% of the original price and reselling them in its unit in Soroksár, in south Pest.
