When a retail chain is remodeling or closing underperforming stores, they used to put their unwanted mannequins and fixtures in the dumpster where they would languish in landfills.
Not only is this expensive (large dumpsters can cost up to $800 a day) but it is an environmental “no-no” since mannequins and store fixtures are typically made out of items that do not biodegrade.
So what is a cost-conscious and socially responsible retailer to do? Call Mannequin Madness.
Recently Bebe saved an average of $3,000 per store when they called Mannequin Madness to recycle over 7,000 mannequins from their stores throughout the US and Canada.
Bebe was remodeling stores and closing underperforming ones needed a partner who could efficiently and quickly remove their unwanted mannequins and fixtures.
Many times the mannequins needed to be removed in the early morning before the stores opened or after the stores had closed. The trucking company that Bebe previously used to remove their mannequins would charge double time for these after hour moves in addition to the fees for disposing of the mannequins.
Mannequin Madness would remove the mannequins/fixtures at no charge – even from stores in Alaska and Hawaii. The company provides retailers
with a single point of contact to handle mannequin removals throughout the US, Canada and England.
