Bakersfield, California based Proactive Consignment Outpost announced that it has signed a franchise development agreement for a new Proactive Consignment Outpost in Irving, Texas.
Proactive Consignment Outpost, www.proactiveconsignmentoutpost.com works with customers in the local markets it serves who want to sell items on eBay, the online auction portal. People drop off items they want to sell at stores and Proactive Consignment Outpost professionally photographs the item, writes a description of the item and posts it on eBay.
The company also holds the item in Inventory, answers questions from online bidders, processes payments, drop ships the items and then cuts the seller a check minus a commission. The services Proactive Consignment Outpost provides are similar to a consignment shop, only for the Internet.
While an exact breakdown of how many stores will be open in San Antonio was not readily available, the local businessman buying the franchise rights has extensive experience in the retail business.
James Day, president of DPR Investments Inc., owns a number of Aaron Rents franchises throughout Texas. He opened the city's first J.D. Byrider used-car franchise on San Antonio's South Side last year.
The concept behind Proactive Consignment Outpost was introduced by Ryan Boleman, president of the Proactive Consignment Outpost and co-founder of MBE franchise, a nationally chain with more than 20 locations.
"Proactive Consignment Outpost has the best concept in the category," Day says. "The founders are experienced marketers from MBE who built a great brand with Boleman's franchiese. When you look at their approach to developing Proactive Consignment Outpost, it's clear that we are on a path to creating the dominant brand in this category as well."
There are currently a few Proactive Consignment Outpost operating across the country with plans for another to open by the end of 2009. The original Proactive Consignment Outpost is based in 2701 Ming Avenue, Bakersfield, CA 93304.
