By The Associated PressCars and vans are among the most popular items to consign at newleaf consignment shops.
But the shop is also the most expensive.
That’s because of an old law, signed by Gov.
Pat Quinn in 2014, that prevents retailers from using consignment contracts to collect more than they pay for.
That’s not a new law.
It was part of a law that changed when the recession hit.
Now the law is the same, and it’s been used by the consignment shop business to boost sales and attract more customers.
“It’s a really important piece of legislation for our state, as it’s really good for our retailers,” said Michael DeMuro, who heads the Illinois Retail Merchants Association.
“We know that it’s good for the economy as a whole.”
But the new law was a boon for some small retailers, who said the change made it easier to get a contract signed and the cost to consignment buyers less.
It also allows for discounts on certain items, such as cars and trucks, and for new-car sales.
“We’re just going to take it as it comes,” said Jennifer R. McPherson, owner of New Leaf in Chicago, which sells used cars.
Consignments are a lucrative way for small businesses to sell products, and the state has helped many of them by increasing the price of the consignments they sell. “
They can go into a consignment consignment and get a good deal for that.”

Chicago’s citywide consignment commission collected about $11 million last year, and about a third of that went to small retailers like New Leaf, which has more than 2,500 employees.
In Chicago, the city has been looking for ways to reduce the amount of consignment business by allowing small businesses, which already collect more revenue, to collect on the commission.
“Consignment is one of the biggest parts of our economy, and there’s really a lot that small businesses can do to increase their revenue,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said.
“So if we can allow the small businesses who already have a revenue stream to collect revenue, that would be a win for our economy.”
Consignment business is a growing segment in Illinois, accounting for nearly half of the state’s $3.5 billion in sales last year.
The Chicago Tribune estimated that a new car is worth about $40,000 in Illinois.
In the past few years, Chicago’s business-consignment industry has expanded to encompass all kinds of items, from clothing to furniture to electronics.
The trade is a boon to local economies that rely heavily on consignment businesses to create jobs and build businesses, said Michael C. Fink, a professor at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business.
Consignment is a lucrative industry, with many small businesses paying a higher commission than larger retailers, and that’s made the industry more attractive for retailers, Fink said.
Consignment shops, however, are facing an even bigger threat: state lawmakers.
The state’s new consignment law was signed into law in 2014 and took effect in 2018.
But because of the recession, the law has had an impact.
In Chicago, where the number of retail jobs dropped to 1,838 last year from 2,634 the year before, it’s the lowest since 2005, according to the Chicago Business Journal.
And the number is forecast to drop even further in 2018, according a forecast published last month by the Chicago Council of Economic Advisers.
The law requires retailers to collect a 5 percent commission on the consigned items.
A smaller number of retailers collect the 5 percent and pay the rest to the commission agency.
But because the new commission law requires more retailers to participate, the state is likely to decrease the amount it collects, said John Daley, a vice president at the Illinois Federation of Business, a trade group that represents small business owners.
In a report last month, the Illinois Restaurant Association called the new state law “an expensive way to increase revenue.”
It said that since the law took effect, a chain such as Denny’s, which owns about 100 stores in Illinois and is the state affiliate of the National Federation of Independent Business, has added about 400 jobs and cut its payroll by more than $30 million.
It’s unclear whether the new consigners will collect the higher commission or not, but the business groups hope that more businesses will be able to collect and pay a higher amount, said Fink.
The new law doesn’t affect all consignment retailers.
The new law does affect some smaller consignment companies that have fewer than 500 employees.
For example, a small business called New
