IKEA UK launches ‘Buy Back’ scheme to purchase unwanted furniture items from shoppers

IKEA shoppers will be able to get money for old furniture from the retailer. The items will then be available for other customers to buy.

How does it work?

With the ‘Buy Back’ scheme, customers can sell unwanted IKEA furniture back to the store.

Shoppers wanting to sell their old pieces will be paid with an IKEA refund card that can be spent in stores.

The types of furniture accepted will include dressers, office drawer cabinets, small structures with drawers, display storage, sideboards, bookcases and shelf units.


Small tables, cabinets, dining tables and desks, chairs and stools without upholstery, drawers and children’s products can also be returned.

The value of the items will vary depending on the condition in which they are returned.

However, those that are considered “as new” in condition could get vouchers worth as much as 50 percent of the original selling price.

Homeware items that are “very good”, with minor scratches, will receive 40 percent of the original price.

Country sustainability manager at IKEA UK & Ireland Hege Sæbjørnsen said: “The IKEA vision has always been to create a better everyday life for the many people, which right now means making sustainable living easy and affordable for everyone.

“Being circular is a good business opportunity as well as a responsibility, and the climate crisis requires us all to radically rethink our consumption habits.

“Currently, 45 percent of total global carbon emissions come from the way the world produces and uses everyday products, so Buy Back represents an opportunity to address unsustainable consumption and its impact on climate change.”
