Abstract: This paper explores the used intimate apparel collection (UIAC) programs in a supply chain system. Our game-theoretic analysis reveals that the collector type and the level of retail competition affect the UIAC program significantly. In particular, we show that the benefit-cost ratio of the collector's investment plays a decisive role in determining whether an increased level of competition will improve the UIAC program's levels of social, environmental, and economic sustainability. We further find that an increased level of competition will lead to a higher consumer surplus if the respective consumer goodwill of donation is sufficiently small.
