Buffalo Exchange announces the opening of its first store on a college campus on February 20, 2006 at Oregon State University, 43 Memorial Student Union, The Basement, Corvallis, OR 97330-5004, phone 541-737-BUFF (2833). Store hours are 10-6 Monday through Friday and 11-6 on Saturdays. The University web site is osumu.org. Buffalo Exchange is using approximately 756 square feet of sales floor.

Martha Varela, an OSU graduate student in Higher Education Administration who manages The Basement at the Memorial Union (MU), contacted Buffalo Exchange first. Varela, originally from Tucson and a self-described “Buffalo Exchange junkie,” got the idea when she visited Buffalo Exchange in Seattle. She thought it was just a pipe dream, but Kerstin Block, president of Buffalo Exchange, was interested. “I think that because the OSU community offered this opportunity to us, we are happy to try this out,” says Block. “It's a good audience for our business. We've always done well in campus environments.” And Varela’s boss at the MU loved the fact that Buffalo Exchange offers sustainable clothing.

The Corvallis location is Buffalo Exchange’s fourth store in Oregon. The Eugene store, located at 131 E. Fifth Ave., phone 541-687-2805, was voted Best Local Clothing Shop and Best Secondhand Store Runner-Up 2005 by Eugene Weekly readers. The Portland stores, voted Best Vintage Clothing Store and Best Clothing for Hip Chicks by Willamette Week readers in 2005, are located at 1036 W. Burnside downtown, phone 503-222-3418, and in the Hawthorne District at 1420 SE 37th Ave., phone 503-234-1302.

Buffalo Exchange is unique because clothing and accessories are bought, sold and traded directly with store customers. Used clothes can be traded for any item in the store. The ever-changing inventory includes designer wear, basics, vintage, jeans, leather, and one-of-a-kind items. As of Feb 20, 2006, the resale clothing store chain has 26 stores and 5 franchises in 11 states, with $40 million a year in sales.

UNIVISION: “MEJOR SITIO PARA COMPRAR ROPA VINTAGE”

Univision’s Premios Juventud “Top 10 para jóvenes” National TV program awarded Buffalo Exchange the number two spots for “mejor sitio para comprar ropa vintage” in both Dallas and Houston, listed online as of Jan 20, 2006. The program aired on Sep 22, 2005 at 9 pm PST. On Houston: “A este lugar puedes llevar tu ropa vieja que esté en buenas condiciones, la puedes intercambiar por mercancía de este lugar o te dan una pequeña cantidad de dinero. Es un buen lugar para buscar ropa retro.” On Dallas: “Ropa, ropa y más ropa. Tienen un gran surtido de prendas de vestir para hombre y para mujer. Aunque las prendas de vestir no tienen un orden dentro de la tienda, las instalaciones son muy acogedoras incluso hay una pequeña cafetería donde puedes sentarte a descansar.”
