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 34 stores and 2 franchises in 13 states, with $55.8 million a year in sales. The Blocks still own and run Buffalo Exchange out of Tucson, along with their daughter Rebecca.
