Insider Information ;)

If you are a newer member of the M&C community, or you’ve been with us as we’ve moved from Amherst to Nashua and back to Amherst…. 
We thought you’d appreciate a list of tips or reminders.


If the item does not sell after it’s first full month on the racks, it is automatically marked down by 25%, and then 50% after the second month.  Those dates and prices are printed right on the price tags.


What happens to the things that don't sell? Many go to local organizations. The rest goes to Ecosmith Recyclers. We think they are the most honest textile recycling company around. You can bring textile and shoes donations to mc square.  There are clothing bins in our parking lot!


Love designer brands?  Look for wooden hangers. 


Love to shop local?  At M&C about 90% of your purchase stays in the local economy.  We give 40% or more of the price that you pay to the person (a member of the local community) who consigned the item.  We pay our workers who spend their money locally, and we buy as many of our supplies and services as possible from local businesses.


Wondering why RePlay, our sporting goods department, seems like a separate business? We wanted to make it clear that we have gear for men, women, and children so, we gave it a separate name.  We are actually one big happy shop.


Speaking of RePlay, don’t miss the upstairs gear rooms!  


We have an upstairs, Good-Buy room!   When we have a surplus of items that are on their last markdown, we’ll be moving those items up to a room above the Women's department.
