For that, starting on Black Friday this year, the Swedish giant company will launch a buy-back scheme to any unwanted IKEA furnitures. Under the plan, it will offer vouchers worth up to 50% of the original price with no expiry date, to be spent at its stores, as stated in BBC News.

“By making sustainable living more simple and accessible, Ikea hopes that the initiative will help its customers take a stand against excessive consumption this Black Friday and in the years to come,” it said in reference to 27 November, when lots of retailers offer discounts on their products.

  • Very good – items with minor scratches will get 40%
  • Well used – with several scratches will get 30%.
