Armadillo Consignment is Closing

It is with a burdened heart that I tell you Armadillo Consignment will close for business Saturday October 28th.

A recent and projected rent increase forces this very difficult decision.

Armadillo Consignment opened on August 27th, 2007.  During this time we’ve consigned almost 140,000 items, supported several local charities, and most importantly have made several thousand friends and neighbors. We sincerely thank you for allowing us to be part of your community and hope you will continue to support us as we transition.

Closure Details 

Tuesday September 5th:  Last day we will accept new consignments. All store fixtures and equipment will also be for sale.

Tuesday September 12th:  We will begin closing Tuesdays in addition to Mondays.

Wednesday September 13th:  We will begin liquidating inventory and the following discount schedule will apply:

  • September 13th – 24th (30%)

  • September 27th – October 8th (40%)

  • October 11th – October 28th (50%)

If you do not wish to have these discounts applied to your consignment you must retrieve it by Sunday September 10th.

You will continue to receive 50% of any sales unless other arrangements have previously been made.

If you’ve consigned an item with us that has a beginning value of $300.00 or more we will give you 80% of the final sales price if it sells at the 50% discount.

Saturday October 28th: All contracts will end at the close of business on Saturday October 28th.  All items that remain thereafter become the property of Armadillo Consignment.  We will sell, donate or dispose of it without explanation, reimbursement, or benefit to you.

Checks for sales that occur between October 1st – 28th will be processed as usual and mailed on November 7th.

Undoubtedly there will be questions and special circumstances that will need to be addressed.  Rest assured that we’ll approach them in our usual manner and make reasonable accommodations where we can.

Again, we truly appreciate the relationship we’ve established with you and thank you for your patience as we transition. I will remain in touch with you and make sure you know our individual plans for the future.
