New and Used is the game, Bid and Buy is their name. Founder Jennifer Lanzetti was shopping for all the things she needed to add another baby to her family. It was then that the idea of Bid & Buy started. As she was searching for great deals on name-brand, trusted products she realized there had to be a better way for everyday people to save money without wasting hours scouring the internet.
Bid & Buy opened their first store in Salt Lake City, Utah in the summer of 2020, in the middle of an international pandemic. At first glimpse starting a new business in January seems like a terrible idea. But, this is the type of business that needs to be showing up right now for people. A business that helps everyone maintain some normalcy in their lifestyle and habits, since so many things are changing rapidly. People need some comfort and safety right now.
When asked why coming to work is so fun, Jennifer says "Why doesn't love finding good deals? Now we get to do it on a massive scale and share with our customers." Along with finding deals the Bid & Buy team is growing the SLC store, planning the future locations, helping distressed businesses, holding auctions to alleviate stress for estate holders, and helping artists sell their creative gifts through consignment. About the only thing no one really loves is the cleaning, but since COVID-19 was invited to the party they do that more often that ever.
The online store went live in the Winter of 2020 so now everyone can experience the excellent deals brought to you by Bid & Buy, not just those in the Salt Lake Area. Hundreds of items are added weekly so check in often! They carry only high-quality brand products and everything is marked down 30%-80% off retail.
