Not Traditional Consignment
The business plan for KCD since 2008 has been to promote high quality furniture and accessories priced to sell from the outset. We rejected the traditional consignment approach of initial overpricing coupled with automatic markdowns. Kim’s Consigned Designs was built on the concept of great items at a great price and a fun place to shop! The majority of our items sell within 30 days because we do not over-inflate the initial price.
No Commission-Based Salespeople
The first year was exciting, while exhausting. Kim worked each day and with a few part-time employees. Although sometimes difficult this allowed them to learn every aspect of the business, first hand. Now you will find nearly 8-10 employees running the showroom at KCD. Having worked in commission-based sales positions, KCD chose to initiate a policy of no commission salespeople. This policy saves the buyer big money and puts the focus on helping the customer, not “selling the next up”.
Largest in the Tri-State
Based on the great support from the community surrounding the store in Newburgh, KCD has continued to grow into our 12,750s.f. store.
As Kim’s Consigned Designs sales have grown, they have attracted the attention of the furniture industry. Now, some furniture factories consign their samples, closeouts, over runs or other new products, much to the advantage of the KCD customer.
Kim’s was recognized as 2010 Platinum, 2011 Platinum, 2012 Platinum, 2013 Gold, and 2014 Platinum, and 2015 Platinum Winner for the Evansville Courier’s Readers Choice awards for BEST CONSIGNMENT STORE in the Tri-State! We owe a great deal of thanks to our shoppers and our consignors for this great honor. Thank all those who voted for us over the last eight years.
