There are many wholesale liquidators that give great discounts on items, as well as providing customers with closeout merchandise. They are located all over the states and are the popular place to go for bargain shopping, especially around the holidays. Anything can be liquidated; clothing, housewares, hardware, flooring, toys, books, furniture, electronics, linens, and even health and beauty items. Many liquidators have been in business for over 20 years and are widely known.
These liquidators aren’t only store fronts, they are also found online. Some of these liquidating sites only offer wholesale products to professional buyers, such as large businesses or corporations.
They generally have a minimum amount of money that needs to be spent; often in the upper thousands. This steep price isn’t very feasible for the average shopper, unless he/she is trying to open up a small business. It is common for some people to purchase a large quantity of products and then sell them.
When purchasing from places that liquidate wholesale items, these bulk lots are sold in a small package, by the pallet, or even by a truckload. Some items may be in their original package or they may be returns from customers, so the package may have been opened. Not only is there commercial surplus, but sometimes there is even government surplus being sold. When making a wholesale purchase and in such a large quantity, the items often cost just a few cents each.
Sometimes the wholesale liquidators aren’t selling off items that companies had too many of, they at times are selling off the entire inventory from a company that has gone out of business. This liquidation of goods can be mandatory by the creditors of the company going out of business or it may be a voluntary liquidation by the company itself. It’s hard to know just where all these goods come from, but they are fantastic deals nonetheless.
