Buffalo Exchange is a chain of second-hand clothing stores in the United States based in Tucson, Arizona. The first Buffalo Exchange opened in Tucson, Arizona in May 1974, and the chain now has many locations along the west coast with some additional locations in the midwest and east coast. Customers can buy used apparel as well as trade in their own used clothes. The value of a trade in is calculated by a trained buyer, and then the customer can receive a percentage of that value in cash or store credit. Buffalo Exchange was founded with the idea of sustainability in mind, and has continued to maintain that tradition throughout their expansion. An example of this are the charity tokens. Customers may opt to receive small cardboard tokens in place of a bag for their purchase. There is a line of boxes along the wall with the names of local and national charities written on them for the customers to put the tokens into. Each token is worth a 5 cent donation from Buffalo Exchange to the customers' charity of choice. Management has been known to contribute their time to said local charities.
