About PrePlayed

PrePlayed is one of the largest retail stores in Northeast Wisconsin where we buy pre-owned movies, video games, electronics, and music CDs to resell them. Everything we sell is guaranteed to work like it's new and our customers have lifetime access to our cleaning services as long as there's proof of purchase.

We give them room to try out what they're buying to be sure it's what they want. We also reserve items for our customers when they make requests for what we don't have in store. Our stores allow customers to purchase a variety of secondhand goods at half the prices of the new ones, sell or exchange goods that they no longer need.

Values & History

PrePlayed as a national retail franchise grows from the trendiest in entertainment: Video Games, Movies, Music and Electronics. At PrePlayed, we turn what we like to refer to as ‘proven exchange' concepts into a trendy, fun and classy retail environment that meets the needs of our value-conscious customers and gives them an incredible shopping experience. Since all our goods are pre-owned, our prices are 40 - 60% lesser than traditional retail which leaves our customers confident that they got more for less.

Industry Performance

Booming Market

Secondhand stores used to be what only the minors patronized but today, this industry is now growing at twice the rate of the traditional retail and hitting over 17 billion dollars. This demand is due to the efforts this industry has put into its transformation and marketing techniques. With this heightening demand, you can tell how Americans view castaways even at a time when they can afford new ones. This acceptance of the secondhand industry by the public is becoming vast and PrePlayed stores are more appealing to customers of all ages, budgets and backgrounds.

Edge Over the Competition

These are the ways we rise above our competitors:
  • Our exclusive POS system has contributed to consistent buying and made our pricing standards constant between our stores and employees.
  • Our customer reservation system alerts us when a requested item [that was out of stock or not in our inventory] is available for a customer's need.
  • Our look-up stations throughout our stores make it easier for customers to know if the item they want is available or not without the help of sales personnel.
  • Our listening and viewing stations allow for previewing before purchase so that our customers the consumer are 100% satisfied with their purchase.
  • Items that get easily stolen are not displayed except for the packaging to curb theft and meet the needs of customers.
  • We have a special repair service that cleans or works on any type of disc, CD-ROM or DVD.
  • Our brand name is short and precise without telling too much. That's what makes it easy to remember and why we can use it on our products and services whether new or not.
  • We're the first of our kind and if there are any copiers, our customer loyalty and brand recognition will still set us apart.
