BANANA REPULIC RENTING CLOTHING?

I received an email today that BR is renting their performance wear (workout clothes) for a 30 day free trial. Who gets these in the mail (as their order) when the 30 days is over and items are returned? EWWW!

@Shanus Isn't that similar to Amazon's try before you buy for their clothing? I often wonder what happens to the returns?

@Trinity11, I've wondered about that too.

The BR website page for this Style Passport states in several places that they dry clean everything once it is returned.

What's the difference between this and something like Rent the Runway?

 

Does BR resell these clothes at full price after they are rented or are these saved just for renting?

 

I think clothes renting is becoming a very big business.

There's only one way people can rent clothing:  Common sense no longer exists.

 

Couldn't you just go to the Salvation Army, or Goodwill?  Or are you too (JUDGMENT ALERT!) lazy? Woman Frustrated
