St. Thomas student hits $1M in sales with refurbished furniture company that emphasizes sustainability

Tuesday, 13 February 2024

The summer before his junior year of high school, John Costello was looking through the “free” section of Craigslist when he stumbled upon a used set of office cubicles. For Costello, now a junior at the University of St. Thomas, those free cubicles would become first sale for his company, West Metro Solutions, which celebrated $1 million in sales in September.

West Metro Solutions is an environmentally conscious office furniture company that refurbishes and resells used office furniture across the U.S., keeping it out of the landfill, said Costello, who is studying entrepreneurship and finance at St. Thomas.
