Case Study: $200,000 Above Inventory Cost

Earlier this year we completed the liquidation of a lumber and hardware store established in 1950.  When the owner was ready to retire, he started looking for help to close the store.  He talked to his good friend who had closed his hardware store a couple years earlier.  The friend told him he used Wingate and could not have been happier with the results and that, “It could not have gone smoother.”  The store owner immediately called and asked to have our Representative call on him.  He liked what he heard and employed us to assist with his Store Closing Sale.  Gross sales ran well over $200,000 above inventory cost plus fixtures and equipment sold for over $180,000.  It was an outstanding sale because the store was a well stocked, high volume store and the owner gave our Consultant full cooperation and followed our sale plan to the letter.
