Retail customer returns can be a great source of inventory for the right type of business. eBay sellers, flea market merchants, bargain outlet retailers and online sellers can all benefit from buying customer returns from major retailers.
Every retailer takes returns bstock liquidations sourcing back from customers. It is a basic cost of doing business in retail. Once those returns come back, retailers must have the ability to dispose of these goods since they will not b-stock sourcing liquidation put them back in their own stores.
Here is a short list of retailers and their approach to selling customer returns:
Walmart returns: Wamart sells customer returns directly to small businesses via their Official Liquidation Marketplace. All you need is a resale certificate to qualify.
Samâs Club returns: Samâs Club sells returns through its private liquidation marketplace located at http://samsb2b.bstocksolutions.com. Lot sizes range from single pallets to full truckloads.
H.H. Gregg returns: hh gregg sells returns and salvage loads through its recently launched liquidation marketplace which is part of the B-Stock Network. It is located at http://liquidation.hhgregg.com.
Macyâs returns: Macyâs sells returns directly to small businesses via auctions and direct sales. You can usually find returns from Macyâs on BStockSupply.com.
Target returns: Target sells their returns only to a small group of brokers with whom they have done business for many, many years. It is difficult to buy directly from the company.
Costco returns: Historically, Costco has sold all returns locally out of each club. The manager of each store would make his/her own deals with local liquidators to buy returns. They are slowly moving to a consolidation model by which they will sell out of regional distribution centers.
Best Buy returns: Best Buy sells returns in a number of different ways. They have a significant presence on eBay, where they sell the highest quality items direct to consumers. They also operate additional eBay accounts for selling lower quality goods. Finally, the âsalvageâ goods that remain are sold in bulk lots through their own liquidation marketplace.
Sears returns: Most Sears returns are sold by their long time logistics 3PL, Genco. The quality of these returns has a reputation for not being particularly good, probably in part due to cherry picking by Genco of the best quality merchandise to sell elsewhere. Exercise extra care if considering these loads.
Kohlâs returns: Kohlâs returns are also all sold by Genco. This 3PL pays bottom dollar to retailers like Kohlâs for their returns and then resell them at a substantial markup. Similar quality and cherry picking problems are reported by many buyers of Kohlâs returns as mentioned above with Sears returns.
