Entrepreneurs know for a fact that a business can be a trial and error experience—a gamble for many. Some experience bankruptcy at least once before they learn from their mistakes and become successful. For those in the retail industry that have never managed to take off, a last resort would be to sell liquidation closeout merchandise at rock bottom prices.
Liquidation is the procedure by which the assets of a company that has reached bankruptcy or is about to close shop, are sold to pay off suppliers. A closeout is the clearance of a retail company's inventory by selling items at extremely low prices, usually at the end of a season or the year. Closeout liquidation is essentially the sale of inventory items in lieu of bankruptcy.
Some retail companies have trouble with closeout liquidation because of the quantity of the merchandise that has to be disposed. Fortunately, there are liquidators that buy these liquidation closeout items to help retail companies empty their warehouses to replace them with new inventory that can sell better at this time of the year. The excess inventory items are sold to wholesalers, discount retailers, online merchants and sales agents who also offer this merchandise for sale.
These liquidators help troubled retail companies by paying them in cash up front in exchange for the entire inventory. For some, this is a way to save them from bankruptcy or a means to successfully recover from it and continue with business. Though off season or old models, these items still have a market and are patronized by buyers who consider them valuable because they were not able to get them at the height of the product’s popularity.
Liquidators also transact with manufacturers who have experienced poor business in the recent past. Makers and distributors of electronics and appliances, for example, may have had trouble selling these items because of stiff competition and its oversupply. Liquidators buy these items regardless of kind and quantity.
Whether your business is small and fledgling or large and well-established, as long as you need to dispose of merchandise, there are closeout liquidating experts to help you. You can be assured that you can get rid of the entire inventory you no longer need and recover your financial losses. For more information, see BusinessWeek.com.
