With record shopping expected on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday, Liquidation.com -- the largest online auction marketplace for returned and overstock merchandise from seven of the top 10 U.S. retailers -- is prepping for Restock Tuesday, the annual day on which small-business retailers and e-tailers descend on the website to restock their shelves and websites following the busiest shopping days of the year. Liquidation.com lets retailers choose from a wide range of categories, including hot holiday items like consumer electronics, apparel, jewelry, toys, tools and home goods. Depending on the type of product and each merchant’s quantity needs, merchandise is conveniently available by the truckload, pallet, or in single-unit quantities.
Restock Tuesday, which falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, is traditionally one of Liquidation.com’s busiest days, with website traffic typically increasing by 15-20%. To prepare for the inventory needs of its customers, the company expects its auction count to increase by 20% and will be hiring additional team members in its four warehouse centers across the United States.
“We are seeing a trend of more retailers opening their doors even earlier this holiday season to satisfy consumer and industry expectations,” said Cayce Roy, President of Liquidity Services’ Retail Supply Chain Group. “When you combine that with the overall projected 4.1% increase in holiday sales, we are expecting record numbers of retailers and e-tailers to be restocking their inventory immediately following the Thanksgiving shopping weekend to prepare for the December rush. As the leading business to business channel for the sale of surplus inventory, Liquidation.com is best positioned to quickly, effectively and conveniently satisfy any retailer’s inventory needs to ensure their shelves or websites are stocked with all the hot items needed for a successful holiday season.”
Liquidation.com supports retailers of all sizes as it works with the largest and broadest range of retailers in the U.S. selling surplus, overstock and consumer-returned inventory to other retailers in need of similar products. Auction sizes include truckload, pallet, small package and single-unit, while product conditions range from new to consumer returned and salvage. More than two million registered buyers source inventory and merchandise from Liquidation.com, with access to inventory in warehouses located in Garland, TX; Plainfield, IN; Cranbury, NJ; and Las Vegas, NV.
