SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 3, 2021 — Today, Nextdoor announced Free Finds, a new product enabling neighbors who haven’t yet signed up for Nextdoor to easily find and browse the wealth of free items in their neighborhood.
Since the beginning of 2020, Nextdoor has seen an 80% increase in monthly listings to its buy, sell, and give away product, with 25% of items listed as free. Free Finds makes it easier than ever to find free items nearby by browsing listings in the area on Nextdoor. Neighbors not yet on the platform can then contact the giver simply by signing up for a free Nextdoor account.
“Free Finds is an extension of a product loved by neighbors around the world,” said Rhett Angold, Product Lead at Nextdoor. “It’s your trusted neighborhood treasure map to live sustainably, save money, build connections, and of course find items for your everyday needs.”
Additionally, Nextdoor revamped its popular For Sale & Free product which will now be called Nextdoor Finds. This redesign took what neighbors loved most about the product and made it a more tailored experience. Nextdoor Finds better serves neighbors with personalized recommendations, Free Finds, unique categories such as “Neighbor Made” and “Neighbor Services,” and more.
“Using Nextdoor Finds, I’ve been able to get most of my household items for 90-100% less than what they would cost otherwise,” said Murdoc, a Nextdoor neighbor in Denver, CO. “I also appreciate that I am consuming less materials and helping others generate less waste.”
