"three years, three years old, sewing and three years" is now "the old do not, the new do not come." instead, every kind of goods because of its cheap and practical, into the lives of ordinary people. With the progress of science and technology and the improvement of people’s consumption level, the replacement cycle of household articles has been shortened. Many families have "surplus" – secondhand goods.
flea market is generally very flexible way of operation, such as home appliances category of goods, in addition to buy, and even rent. This is "alternative" people’s livelihood, the people have great demand. In the county city, the old trade still has a certain market.
: we are now in the domestic more than 20 city, the flea market better is a big city, like Shenzhen, Shanghai, Guangzhou, the city has done better, the reason is that these big city development earlier, on this basis, the Tianjin flea market came into being
but now the domestic flea market is facing several problems:
first, the average price of second-hand goods prices declined, while operating costs rose, so that second-hand business difficulties. In recent years, with the development of commodity production, the overall price level of junk goods has dropped year by year. By 90s, the price of second-hand goods only accounted for 30% – 40% of the average price of similar new products on the market. As the second-hand specifications, models vary, most of the packaging defects, to its storage, storage and transportation difficulties, the operating costs of second-hand enterprises increased, which caused great difficulties to the operation of second-hand goods enterprises. Running second-hand goods, the same amount of commercial labor to achieve a small amount of circulation.
two, the overall quality of state-owned enterprises is not high. For a long time, the state-owned enterprises operating thrift organization degree of the old low, small, scattered, there exists the problem of poor, single mode of operation, can not form scale economy, coupled with more retirees, serious brain drain, difficulties in the development of enterprises. At present, these old junk enterprises are still lacking vitality. Although the new second-hand enterprises can reach a certain scale quickly at a higher starting point, they mostly lack the professionals who run second-hand goods, not to mention the experience of management. As a whole, the organization of state-owned second-hand goods enterprises, the modernization of management and the quality of personnel are all in urgent need of improvement.
three, outmoded concept also restricted the development of our country flea market to a certain extent. The direct consequence of this restriction is that consumers have a weak sense of commodity trading, and the old goods outlet is not smooth.
