How Does Consignment Work?

3 Rivers Outdoor Co. sells used outdoor equipment and apparel as well as new. We sell used gear brought to us by you our customers and sell it on consignment. We believe that great gear is out there waiting to resume its useful life. Re-using and re-selling good quality gear is not just good for the pocket book it minimizes our eco-footprint. Used gear can help someone looking to explore a new outdoor sport get started where cost can sometimes be prohibitive.

How to Get Started

  • You will complete an electronic 3ROC Consignment application in the store and we will create a consignment account in your name. Using the link above you can get started on the consignment application filling out your personal details and the item descriptions and asking price. When you bring the items into the store we will review the application with you. The above link only works correctly from a desktop web browser at this time. It will NOT load correctly on a phone. You may also complete the entire application in store when you bring your items for consignment.

  • If you wish you can select to donate a portion of your earnings to a local non-profit we are currently partnering with at the time of consignment. We are currently partnered with Tree Pittsburgh and Friends of the Riverfront

    You may select to have items NOT SOLD after 90 days to be automatically donated or to be NOTIFIED for pickup.

  • You will need to decide if you prefer to get 60% STORE CREDIT or 50% CASH VALUE at the time of consignment. Credit in the amount you requested will be put on your account the month following the sale, typically within the first 10 days of the month. Unfortunately we can NOT switch the credit value after an item has sold. Checks are not automatically sent out each month. You must call and request a check for pickup or to be sent.
