A baby gear swap event in Surrey exchanges gift cards for strollers, chairs, and more. – North Delta Reporter

A baby gear swap event at a Surrey shopping center on Saturday (September 25) is part of a new ‘circular economy’ initiative involving The Bay chain and market startup Rebelstork.

Parents can bring “lightly used” baby and children’s equipment to the HBC store in downtown Guildford for a gift card from 11 am to 4 pm.

“Trade-in price will be calculated using Rebelstork’s real-time estimated value and instant resale technology,” says an article on rebelstork.com, which includes a list of accepted items – strollers, swings, chairs highs, activity centers and more.

“Products will be accepted if they are 2017-2021 and are clean, free of stains, and have no tears or fabric defects. All strollers must have working brakes, working safety straps and opening / closing properly. Items over four years old will be donated to charity. “

The upcycling event is linked to The Bay’s entry into the economy of reselling baby and children’s gear through Rebelstork, which was founded in 2019 by former retail manager Emily Hosie.

“With an increasing rate of inflation and a disrupted supply chain from COVID, the timing is ideal,” a press release on the partnership reads. “Over 40% of parents consider the resale value of new baby equipment at the time of purchase, given that baby equipment has such a short window of use, and more parents of the generation Y make sustainable choices for the way they buy and resell their furniture – not just where their product comes from, but where it goes.

Saturday’s exchange event in Guildford is one of two scheduled for Canada on that day.

The mall is located at the corner of 152nd Street and 104th Avenue, Surrey.
