NOMOI: The Sport Conrad second-hand program
Be honest: do you have a few treasures in your wardrobe that are in perfect condition but no longer worn? Often there are clothes that are too small or whose design you no longer like, but it is often difficult to part with them. Now your once faithful outdoor companions have the chance of a second life.
NOMOI [nomåi] (adv.), Bavarian: again, once more. Do quality outdoor clothes deserve the chance to fall into loving hands a second time? We think they do! In order to become even more sustainable, Sport Conrad has been making adjustments for several years, such as identifying WIR DENKEN UM brands and products, and changing internal processes to reduce CO₂. With NOMOI we want to take the next step and for the first time offer second-hand goods - initially limited to the brands Maloja, Patagonia, Ortovox, Norrøna, Peak Performance, Dynafit, Salewa, Vaude and Arc'teryx.
Why NOMOI? Reusing clothing is part of the solution because it's already in the cycle. Extending the life cycle of a product saves resources. This is even more important when it comes to high quality, technical outdoor clothing that is designed to withstand extreme conditions for many years. And as a local company, we can keep things close to home. Join NOMOI and give your outdoor treasures a second life. By the way, we donate one percent of NOMOI's net turnover. Read more about our donations here.
How NOMOI works:
Do you have clothing from Patagonia, Maloja, Ortovox, Norrøna, Peak Performance, Dynafit, Salewa, Vaude or Arc'teryx that is in very good condition, without holes or stains, and would like to sell it? Then come to our store in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Penzberg or Wielenbach between 24.6. and 7.7.2023 and show us your treasures. We will examine them together and agree on a fair price. Normal wear and tear is of course part of the deal.
What we accept:
We only accept five items per customer, which must be from Patagonia, Maloja, Ortovox, Norrøna, Peak Performance, Dynafit, Salewa, Vaude and/or Arc'teryx. Please note: We only accept clean, washed items. For reasons of hygiene, we can only accept clothing and hats for both adults and children. Underwear, gloves and socks are not accepted.
How long the NOMOI sale lasts and what you get for the items sold:
Your clothes are offered in the respective branch within special sales periods. They will have their own space and attention. If something is sold, we will notify you and you will receive a voucher for 80 per cent of the agreed sale price. Of the 20 percent we keep, we donate one percent to our WIR DENKEN UM partners. After the sale period, we ask you to collect to collect any clothes that have not been sold. Please do not be disappointed, maybe it will work out at a later date.
When will the next NOMOI sale start?
The next NOMOI sale will take place from 8th to 15th July 2023. Come to one of our three stores and discover new old treasures.
Why we offer NOMOI clothing:
> With NOMOI we can save resources together by using products longer. Unfortunately, we buy 60% more textiles today than we did two decades ago - and wear them for half as long*.
> Against the throwaway society: NOMOI keeps clothes out of landfill. In Germany alone, 400,000 tonnes of textile waste is generated every year, most of which ends up in landfill or is incinerated. Only a small proportion is currently recycled*.
> According to a recent study by the European Recycling Industries Confederation (EuRIC), the environmental impact of used goods is 70 times lower than that of new goods. > We keep distances short - used goods find new owners locally.
> With NOMOI, you can convert unused clothing in good condition into a Sport Conrad voucher.
> NOMOI saves you time: We present the goods and take care of the sale.
> As an outdoor specialist, our store is the perfect place to sell outdoor clothing in good condition.
> Our NOMOI programme offers quality products for a smaller budget.
> Find beautiful, unique pieces that are no longer available in stores.
> Important: NOMOI products cannot be exchanged or guaranteed.

Where can I take my used goods?

Please note: The next NOMOI purchase will take place from 24 June to 7 July 2023.
Why do you only accept products from selected brands?
As we are launching NOMOI on a small scale, we are limiting the range to the popular brands Maloja, Patagonia, Norrøna, Ortovox, Peak Performance, Dynafit, Salewa, Vaude and Arc'teryx. If NOMOI is well received, we look forward to expanding the programme.
Will NOMOI also sell used products online?
In order to be as sustainable as possible and to reduce the logistical effort, we limit the purchase and sale of NOMOI products to our three stores in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Wielenbach and Penzberg.
How long will NOMOI used products be on sale?
NOMOI products are kept for one week. If the item is not sold, we will inform you.
