eBay to open hard to find item shops in the U.S. this Christmas

No primary category set

eBay have announced their plans to open Hard to Find Gift Shops across selected locations in the U.S. in time for Christmas.

Set to start appearing from November 19th the shops will include:

The Hard to Find Sneaker Shop | Detroit, November 19 – 20
Sneaker collector and seller Jaysse Lopez, Urban Necessities, brings his diverse collection of today’s top styles to the shop. The event will also feature a rare display of all 50 pairs of the Off-White x Nike Dunk Low collection.

The Hard to Find Collectibles Shop | Houston, December 3 – 4
In partnership with top eBay sellers, including two from Houston, the shop will be stacked with high value trading cards, collectibles and memorabilia.

The Hard to Find Luxury Shop | Miami, December 10 – 11
Find iconic Hermès Birkin and Kelly bags, Gucci’s Psychedelic and Floral Collections, and rare timepieces from Richard Mille, Audemar Piguet, Rolex and more.

Shoppers outside of these three cities are not out of luck, and can score the same inventory at ebay.com/hardtofindshop.

“This holiday season will put even the most serious shoppers to the test, but eBay was made for moments like this. We created the Hard to Find Shops to bring our unmatched selection to life – from the rare and coveted to the sold-out-everywhere-else. The experience mirrors the impossibility shoppers are facing this year – and reminds them that eBay has something for everyone on their list.”
– Jordan Sweetnam, SVP and General Manager, eBay North America

This season, in particular, shopping early doesn’t guarantee finding everything on one’s gift list. A recent study found that 70 percent of millennial and Gen Z adults who have started their holiday shopping have reported that a product they wanted to purchase in a store was out of stock. One-third of those shoppers say this has happened multiple times as they’ve begun their holiday shopping.
