I would like to share with you these 15 sources
where you can products at below wholesale prices.
You might have explored some of these based
on your level of experience, while others are definitely
not traditional, so they might surprise you.
The main idea is for you to obtain products
at below wholesale prices, so the place
where you are buying them is secondary to
your primary goal.
Wholesale Source #1
Brands. The brands themselves
will often have below wholesale pricing
on the items that they were not able to sell
or simply had too much of. Many brands from
Tahari to Calvin Klein to R&M Richards need to
liquidate excess merchandise and clear out
past season products. If you are a serious
buyer you can possibly get some really good
below wholesale deals.
Wholesale Source #2
Designers. Even the best designers
will sometimes meet market resistance for their
newest creations. Or perhaps the designer
produced too many dresses of a certain style
and now needs to find a buyer for them.
Get in touch with designers and
find out what deals you can make with them.
Wholesale Source #3
Factories. Clothing factories will often produce
merchandise in anticipation of future sales.
When those future sales do not materialize
they will need to liquidate that clothing. Factories
can also have clothing from cancelled orders
which they need to sell.
Wholesale Source #4
Department store overstock. You would be
surprised at the quantity of merchandise that
department stores liquidate every week. Department
stores buy a great deal of merchandise because
they want to have stores full of merchandise so
that they can attract customers. But since they
have so much merchandise they realistically
will not be able to sell it all and therefore
must liquidate it.
Wholesale Source #5
Online retailers. Online retailers
get a large amount of returns from
their customers for various reasons.
You can purchase those returns
at a fraction of the original
Wholesale Source #6
Department store returns.
This is merchandise which customers
bought at a department store
and decided to return it. The department
store cannot sell it as new so it will be
liquidated. Be aware that store return
merchandise can range in condition from
brand new to damaged.
Wholesale Source #7
Closeout warehouses. A closeout
warehouse will specialize in buying
and selling closeout products
at below wholesale prices. Since the
type of merchandise can change often
you should visit closeout warehouses
on a regular basis.
Wholesale Source #8
Importers are a great source of
below wholesale merchandise. From
time to time an importer will bring in
a product which he cannot sell. You can
then make a below wholesale offer
for that merchandise.
Wholesale Source #9
Auctions. You can go to auctions
in which merchandise is being
auctioned off on behalf of
closed businesses, landlords,
storage facilities, and government
agencies. It is very possible to
purchase merchandise at extremely
low prices at auctions, but it's also
possible to get carried away in the bidding,
so be careful.
Wholesale Source #10
Going out of business sales.
If a business is closing its doors
its owners will accept any reasonable
offer for the merchandise since they
are no longer planning on being in
Wholesale Source #11
Garage sales. The merchandise can
be brand new or slightly used. Garage sale
sellers are usually just looking
to get rid of unwanted products, which
means that you might be able to buy
those products at below wholesale prices.
Wholesale Source #12
Flea market vendors. You can visit a
flea market and offer to purchase merchandise
from vendors that no longer want to continue
selling at the flea market, or are having a challenging
time selling their merchandise.
Wholesale Source #13
Liquidation sales. When a large retail chain is
closing its doors a liquidator will be
hired to liquidate the contents of the store.
You would be surprised at some of the low
prices that you will be able to find. But you do
need to be aware that the liquidators can bring
in merchandise to sell specifically for the sale.
Make sure the liquidation price is really lower
than what you would pay elsewhere.
Wholesale Source #14
Thrift stores can be an excellent
source for below wholesale prices.
Most of the items are donated
so whatever price the thrift store
sells the merchandise can give them
Wholesale Source #15
Online clearance sales. You
would be pleasantly surprised
at how low the prices are
on brand name and designer
merchandise during online clearance sales.
Be ready to act quickly since the quantities
are usually limited.
Before buying any merchandise make sure
to do your research so that you know
that you are really getting a good deal
on the merchandise.
