Why A Retail Liquidation Sale?
If you’re thinking about closing your store, you may be looking into one or more of the following:
- Store sale – Selling the entire store; buyer will take over operations
- Bulk sale – Selling inventory in lots to businesses who resell it
- Auction – Selling inventory and assets at auction, generally in lots
- Store closing sale – Selling inventory and assets to consumers
Compared with other options, a store closing sale can usually be executed quickly – often in 60 days or less. And, you’ll typically see a higher rate of return selling to consumers than you would if you sell or auction your inventory in bulk to a reseller.
Additionally, a store closing sale is less risky than selling the entire store with its contents. Your name and your credit won’t be on the line, and you’ll get cash immediately that can be used to pay off debt and start your next chapter.
Your store closing sale is only going to be as successful as the liquidator you work with, so it’s important to know what to look for when choosing a liquidator.

Single Store Liquidations
When you work with Wingate Sales Solutions, you get a partner with valuable expertise and services. Store closing sales are complicated and demanding. They require a huge amount of time and energy as well as an intimate knowledge of liquidation strategies, consumer motivation techniques and hands-on detail management.
Most businesses that liquidate without professional help cash out for a fraction of their true value, but we can help you get the best recovery possible.
If you’re considering running your own liquidation sale, give us a call first. There’s no obligation or cost for our consultation and it’s completely confidential. Our fees will probably cost less than what you’d spend on promotions and we can often liquidate inventory profitably.
Multi-Location or Franchise Store Liquidations
There are many reasons retail franchise locations close, such as the loss of a lease, to get out of a bad lease, lack of profitability, a court order, the need for a quick influx of cash, or simply that management wants to go in a different direction. The entire chain or group of stores may be liquidated and closed, or only select locations.
Whatever the reason, we have the experience and expertise to get the best possible return for the merchandise, fixtures and equipment. Money raised from the inventory liquidation of marginal or unprofitable stores can relieve a lot of financial pressure and make the entire chain more manageable and profitable. Our fees will typically cost less than packing and shipping merchandise to a more profitable store and then unpacking and re-displaying it.
If you’re a retail franchise independent owner-operator facing liquidation, call us at 1-888-480-7253 to discuss your situation and find out how we can help.
Our store closing and going out of business sales often recover inventory cost or better. This is especially important for stores in bankruptcy or foreclosure. If the store is open, keep restocking it, because well-stocked stores get the best return. If the store is already closed, the sale needs to be started ASAP, because the longer the inventory sits, the more difficult it will be to get the best recovery.
For stores facing bankruptcy, foreclosure or repossession, we help owners liquidate the store to get the highest recovery for the inventory, fixtures, equipment and other assets.
