The first Buffalo Exchange opened in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona by Kerstin and Spencer Block. To our knowledge, this was the very first store that bought, sold, traded, and took clothing items and accessories on consignment. Kerstin, being Swedish, thought the word "Buffalo" was very American. And since the store was going to be an "Exchange," the store's name was born. The store was in a 450 square foot space that had been an old union office on a side street near the University of Arizona. Kerstin's love of fashion and thrill in finding a bargain combined to create the company that now has 24 stores and 6 franchises in 11 states, with over $29 million a year in sales. The Blocks still own and run Buffalo Exchange out of Tucson, along with their daughter Rebecca.

You see, this isn't really a shop. It's a cult in disguise. While having all kinds of beliefs is everybody's right, shoving them down your customers' throats is not. Buffalo Exchange does not believe in bags. They hand you the clothes, which may be many...More

I have visited several Buffalo Exchange stores in 3 different states and really like them all. This store is particularly clean and well organized but the friendly, helpful staff is what really makes this store great!

The staff, the atmosphere with retro music, and the variety of clothes was a pleasure! The store is so much better and bigger than the one on 26th street in Manhattan, NY

I took my daughter-in-law and son here on our visit to Tucson. We had alot of fun searching through the clothes. We all found great wearable, stylish clothes. I wish we had one of these stores where I live.
