what is abundatrade.com?
AbundaTrade.com is a privately owned company based in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, ten miles from historic downtown Charleston. Launched in September 2008, AbundaTrade evolved from the CD trade-in program of the independent music retailer, Millennium Music. We now accept a wide variety of new and used music, movies, and video games in exchange for cash, gift cards, or select consumer products. There is also the option to donate your trade-in value to a favorite charity. In 2010 we expanded AbundaTrade’s facilities, nearly doubling the space available to handle the thousands of items we receive, process, and ship each day. This enables us to offer our customers an even greater selection of movies, music, video games, and specialty items. As we continue to grow, we have developed fundraising and business partnerships in our local community, and beyond, with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra, Friends of the Charleston County Public Library, the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, Tanger Outlets, as well as various school, churches, and community groups. We are proud that AbundaTrade is part of the emerging reCommerce industry. By focusing our efforts on trading and selling used items, we offer an alternative shopping experience that is less expensive for our customers and less harmful for our environment. As of the end of 2009, we have repaired and re-circulated over 100 tons of CDs and DVDs. Please read Our Vision for more information about our company philosophy and goals.
Where does AbundaTrade.com come from?
AbundaTrade is the modernization and revitalization of Millennium Music, a once stubbornly successful independent music retailer. The AbundaTrade.com, FeedYourPlayer.com, and Millennium Music concepts are all based out of Charleston, South Carolina. Some 20 years ago, near the dawn of compact disc technology, a music retailer known as CD Superstore was sold to Borders Books. Millennium Music was spawned from the CD Superstore crew. Within a few years, Millennium Music became one of the premier names in the South for buying the hottest new music and enjoying in-store concerts and artist autograph sessions. While progressively upgrading to larger stores and multiple franchises, Millennium Music maintained its indie-minded commitment to musicians and their fans. For 11 consecutive years (1998-2008) Millennium Music was chosen as Charleston City Paper’s “Best Place to Buy New CDs,” based on their annual readers’ poll. On several occasions during their reign, Millennium Music also received honors for “Best Place to Buy Used CDs” and “Best CD Store Staff.” A staple of the local cultural scene, the Millennium Music flagship store was located within 14,000 square feet of prime retail space in the heart of historic downtown Charleston. Millennium Music successfully launched their initial CD trade-in program, FeedYourPlayer.com, in January 2006. As 21st Century music-buying trends continued to change the retail landscape, the company ultimately closed its brick-and-mortar retail stores to focus solely on the online venture. In September 2008, the name, AbundaTrade.com, was officially adopted, as a better reflection of the company’s growing concept.
