Beginning in 2015, our mission was to bring the professionalism of companies you love and prices you'd love even more. As a secondhand retailer, we began our quest in Connecticut to search for the best deals on today's most popular consumer electronics. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, game consoles, you name it. We wanted to become to the best player in the game 👾.
By researching the competition, we pinpointed the problems of the secondhand retail market. When you go to sell your items, it seems you would always be offered ridiculous prices from those guys at your local pawn shop who only care to make money 🤑🤑🤑. You could sell your devices privately through Craigslist or an app but having to deal with scammers and messages upon messages and negotiating and...(we could go on and on).
Purchasing a device was even more troublesome. Why were they charging near retail prices for a model that'd been out for 5 years? What would happen when you purchase something through LetGo and it breaks? I guess you would just contact the person who sold it to........wait. Where did they go?! 😡 Another sale then poof, the seller becomes a ghost making off with your money and leaving you with a broken device😓.
We took all of this into account and found the best solution and called it Nyson Retail. Where did our name come from? Great question. It actually started off as Midnight Sun Retail (fun fact: our logo is a moon over a sun🌙☀️). We had the idea of working around the clock to get you the best deals. Hence, from midnight to the sun, and back to midnight (you get the idea). What a great name it was, however, it wasn't exactly the easiest to say and most social media networks couldn't fit that mouthful into a username. So shorten it we said. Midnight Sun...Night Sun...Nyson...bingo! Nyson was born 🤩.
Our main goal when beginning our journey was to find a way to pay more than pawn shops and other stores, while also being able to sell for less than retail stores and most second hand dealers. Most stores have overhead and rent expenses which drive their costs up, purchase prices down, and sale prices sky high. So we eliminated that factor by refusing to open a physical store and by living completely online (we like to think we live in the cloud ⛅️). By doing so, we got rid of the most costly expenses with running a store that way we could pass on those savings to you.
In 2018, we've expanded our reach to Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey and sell our products all over the United States. After all the hard work and thousands of satisfied customers, we would like to say one thing. We're just getting started 💫.
