Merchandise Liquidation Testimonials

For Store Closing, Closing Out, Retirement, Lost Lease, Liquidation, Quitting Business, Going Out of Business or special event sales to be successful a huge amount of traffic must be generated and sustained. We know how to create a buying frenzy and long lines at the cash registers on opening day! Our customer participation incentive programs do more to generate and sustain customer traffic throughout the sale than expensive media advertising.

We always strive to get the best recovery possible! Our going out of business sale plans are designed to be profitable. All stores are different and the return varies depending primarily upon the size, condition, age and mix of inventory. The time of the year the sale is held, the length of time the store has been in business, the store's image and standing, the store location and visibility, available parking, the volume the store does in relationship to the size of the inventory, and many other factors.

To determine the recovery you can expect our Representative will need to call on you. Once he has seen the store and acquired the necessary information he will propose the sale plan best suited to your store. He'll explain it in detail and estimate the return you can expect. He'll figure the cost involved and estimate an advertising budget. You'll have the full details before making a commitment.

We'll keep advertising and other expenses to a minimum. Our sale plan will generate a huge mailing and email list that we use to supplement media advertising. Email doesn't cost anything and can be sent quickly. Targeted direct mail costs very little and between them they keep your customers involved in your sale right down to the last day!

Our inventory liquidations recover more than any other! They should, after all, we've been doing them since 1916!

Our Consultants are experienced and have been through the store liquidation process many times. The Consultant will work with you and guide you through the sale to a successful conclusion. He knows the consequences and how to avoid the pitfalls of getting off course. He's a manager, a problem solver and a solution finder. He'll be your right hand and your best friend!
