Finding A Liquidation Warehouse Near Me
As every retailer knows, finding a good source of cheap wholesale merchandise nearby is a great way of cutting down on not only stock purchasing costs, but also of keeping shipping costs down to a bare minimum. There was a time not so long ago that a traditional wholesale supplier could be relied upon to be a cheap, reliable source of wholesale merchandise. Even after adding their own markups on the goods they sold, retailers could still rely on wholesalers to offer a decent wholesale price.
Sadly, those days are long gone. Nowadays, the prices wholesalers offer their browbeaten customers are virtually on a par with retail prices, and that is an unsustainable situation for any retailer. Much higher wholesale prices mean there’s less room to make a profit. That increases the likelihood that retailers will have to raise their prices, thus driving customers away.
So, what do you do if you still want to buy cheap wholesale merchandise locally? The answer is to switch to a top-tier liquidation specialist such as Direct Liquidation.
What Is A Top-Tier Liquidator?
Liquidators operate very differently from wholesalers. Whereas a wholesaler will buy a truckload or a pallet of wholesale merchandise and then break their purchase down into smaller parcels to sell on for a premium to its customers, a liquidator sells boxloads, pallets and truckloads of wholesale merchandise on behalf of big-name, national retailers.
This is how it works. Every year, national retailers such as Walmart, Amazon and Best Buy find themselves in possession of huge quantities of unwanted merchandise. Why is this? Well, it’s for a number of reasons. For example, a chain retailer may take the decision to close one of its stores. This usually leads to that store’s inventory becoming surplus to requirements.
Another example is when a store over-orders products, most usually tech products that are being superseded by new models, or the retailers find themselves with a surplus of seasonal products after the season the stock relates to has been and gone. This type of merchandise is known as closeouts and overstock respectively. It is no longer required by the retailers, and therefore they look to liquidators to sell these products on as quickly as possible.
By far the largest category of surplus merchandise is customer returns. As the name suggests, these are products that have been returned to retailers for a variety of reasons ranging from the products being faulty, the products bearing superficial or visible damage or the products being returned because customers have changed their minds. There are thousands and thousands of products returned to stores across the country every year. No longer able to sell them as A-stock products, this downgraded B-stock wholesale merchandise is of no use to the retailer and, as with closeouts and overstock, must be disposed of if it is not to clog up valuable warehouse space.
