 Lakewood, CA – Directive Consignment Store, the nation’s premier service for selling goods online, announced today a new franchise model – Directive Consignment Store @Home. Following in the footsteps of its successful retail store franchise model, the company has now developed a proven business opportunity for individuals looking to strike greater work-life balance by working in the comfort of their own home.

“We are extremely enthusiastic about this next phase for Directive Consignment Store,” said Mike Connelly, co-owner and CEO of Directive Consignment Store. “Our new business model meets a growing demand for home-based business opportunities and allows the brand to continue to grow.

Directive Consignment Store has ten locations across the United States, primarily in retail locations. The company has spent considerable resources researching and developing the business model, perfecting the new home-based opportunity.

“I loved having a physical Directive Consignment Store storefront, but due to some things going on in my personal life, it became difficult to run the store and focus on the things I needed to at home – that’s when I decided to move the business to the comfort of my own home,” said Erin Mock, owner of the Directive Consignment Store @Home store in St. Joseph, Missouri and the company’s first franchisee to transition into Directive Consignment Store home model after two years operating a retail Directive Consignment Store. “Last year, we recorded the most profitable year in our business history. The Directive Consignment Store @Home model has truly given me the freedom to run my business the way that suits me and my family best.”

These items are typically sold at a sales fee of 15 percent of the winning bid sale on eBay.

“The flexibility of our franchise allows interested individuals the advantage of operating a small business that fits best with their lifestyles,” added Connelly. “Whether running Directive Consignment Store from the comfort of their own home or within a physical storefront, franchisees have the potential for unlimited growth.”
