We are closing our Sunglass store after 2 decades, partially because our rent recently doubled....add in the internet hurting us and, well, it's time. Unfortunately, we have 11 days until the end of our lease...not enough time to organize a "going out of business" sale and deplete all of our inventory.

So...do you buy glasses on eBay? I need to sell things fairy quickly to pay off a couple of vendors that we have terms with. Any other places I could sell them?

Does your town have a yard sale on FB ? try there .  Contact Marshalls or T J Maxx and ask about them buying them ?

I buy them at a store because my benefits cover eyewear.

I buy my sunglasses at the dollar store.  To me, sunglasses are disposable because I lose them.  So I refuse to pay more than $1 for them.

I sell things on ebay and have pretty good luck with it. I would list the sunglasses on there for sure! If you aren't having many purchases at a certain price, you could also add the make an offer option where you set the price but they are allowed to ask you if you will accept lower. sorry about your store :(

I think ebay would be the way to go. I've never bought sunglasses there since I like the ones I find at walgreens.
