From a press release:
“Buffalo Exchange, the wildly popular Tucson-based fashion resale store, will open its first store in Washington, D.C. in the first quarter of 2012. Bethesda-based Streetsense’s retail brokerage team represented Buffalo Exchange in leasing a two-level, 4,245 square foot store at 1314 14th Street, N.W. in the heart of the city’s “hip” 14th Street corridor. Streetsense also has been engaged to do the design and interior architecture for the store, which will be its 42nd U.S. location.
Founded in 1974 in Tucson, AZ by Kirsten and Spencer Block, Buffalo Exchange now has 41 operating stores in 15 states. Local customers can buy, sell, and trade clothing and accessories at their neighborhood stores. Each store’s ever-changing inventory includes designer labels, vintage, jeans, leather, current basics, and one-of-a-kind items, as well as brand-new merchandise and accessories.
The Village Voice recently named Buffalo Exchange the best used clothing store in New York City, saying: “We just can’t tear ourselves away from Buffalo Exchange. The resale chain has numerous shops spread across 15 states (if you’re ever in Seattle, that one rocks), and their outposts in the East Village, Williamsburg, and Chelsea are transformative experiences.”
