Are Customer Returns Pallets Worth Buying?
Running a retail business can be challenging but also potentially very rewarding. One of the things retailers must get right is exactly where they source their stock. For many, that used to mean sourcing from a local wholesaler. However, with the prices this type of wholesale supplier charges rising to the point that the wholesale price is almost on a par with the retail price, sourcing this way is making it harder and harder for businesses to make a profit.
So, what can you do? Well, one of the ways to combat rising wholesale prices is to buy pallets of customer returns from a Better Business Bureau-accredited liquidator such as Direct Liquidation. But are they worth buying? Let’s take a look.
What Are Customer Returns?
Month after month, customers across the United States take back thousands and thousands of purchased products to some of the country’s biggest retailers. There are many reasons why customers do this. Regardless of how big the manufacturer is, some products will be faulty and are returned for a refund or replacement. Other products may bear either superficial or noticeable damage. In certain cases, brand new products are returned to stores simply because customers change their minds about their purchases.
Whatever the reasons behind customers returning products, the accumulated customer returns on any given month would present the big-name national retail chains and online retailers with a considerable headache were a solution to their disposal not found. Warehouse shelves would quickly fill with products that can no longer legally be sold as new, even when the returned products are exactly that.
Luckily, the big-name retailers have found a solution to their customer returns headache – liquidators. Top-tier liquidations specialists such as Direct Liquidation sell their retail partners’ unwanted customer returns via their own online liquidation websites. And because the retailers wish to dispose of their returns quickly, they’re sold for considerably less than their MSRP value.
