Buying Opportunities

Build Financial Independence Using Liquidation Inventory


Starting a business is a difficult task, especially when it comes to finding inventory to sell at a healthy profit. It's important for entrepreneurs, especially those just starting out, to keep their costs low. One of the best ways to do this is by purchasing and reselling liquidation inventory. 

Liquidation inventory is a broad category that includes many things in the retail industry, such as overstocked and unsold inventory or customer returns. In order for major retailers to get some return on these already purchased items, they liquidate their inventory. This liquidation allows them to make back at least some of the money they invested in the products initially. Liquidation inventory is sold at a price lower than the retail price a major retailer would sell the inventory for, which means a smart, go-getting entrepreneur can turn this inventory into profit quickly.

Today, buying liquidation inventory has never been easier. In the past, a small business owner would need special relationships with the right people in order to purchase liquidation inventory directly from major retailers. Now, B-Stock Solutions bridges the gap between major retailers and small business owners, giving entrepreneurs direct access to the best liquidation inventory. The B-Stock Solutions network of liquidation marketplaces includes everything from clothing and accessories to furniture, from garden tools and outdoor decorations to computer equipment and software. 

The B-Stock Solutions marketplace is auction-based, meaning that buyers have the opportunity to name their own prices. This allows entrepreneurs the security of knowing exactly how much they're going to spend; if you're the highest bidder in a particular auction, you'll pay the price you bid.

Selling this liquidation inventory has also never been simpler. With a myriad of options for re-sellers to choose from, including brick-and-mortar shops and stores and online marketplaces like Amazon and eBay, liquidation inventory is one of the most lucrative business opportunities currently available.  

By using world-class technology, analytics, and services, B-Stock Solutions is able to connect buyers directly with major retailers selling excess inventory. Annually, B-Stock Solutions lists over 100,000 bulk auctions and sells over 50 million units. B-Stock Solutions allows you to receive direct access to liquidation inventory that you could never buy directly from retailers before. 

The Limited stores are not just limited, they are extinct

The Limited posted a message on their website on Friday announcing that all of their 250 stores have been closed.  The company is moving its entire business online.  The company held inventory liquidation blowout sales at around 100 stores.

The company was reportedly preparing for bankruptcy in the event it failed to find a buyer.

There is unlikely to be any liquidation inventory buying opportunities here in the short run, but perhaps there will be if they manage to make a go of the online-only business.  They will certainly have to find an efficient way to dispose of returns if they expect to build a profitable business that has a chance at competing with the other online players in the apparel market.

We'll keep an eye on this one.

Sears Joins B-Stock Sourcing Network with Liquidation Marketplace

Sears has joined many of the other major US retailers in a growing trend that is great for anyone participating in the secondary market.  They have launched their own liquidation marketplace within the B-Stock Sourcing Network.  Their initial lots cross four broad categories, but you can imagine the breadth of products coming will be significant.

The B-Stock Sourcing Network has rapidly come to dominate the liquidation business within major retailers.  The Network consists of around 30 marketplaces now and seems to be growing extremely quickly.  If you are a small business participating in the secondary market, you really cannot operate without becoming a part of this ecosystem.  The best part is, it is free for buyers to become members.

We will keep an eye on this Sears / Kmart site and let you know if we see any interesting developments.

Drones and 3D printers available on

Many of you probably already keep an eye on the inventory available each week on this great liquidation marketplace.  The overstock, refurb and customer return inventory on the site has grown substantially over the past year.  Right now, there are two really cool lots available.  One is a lot of 3D printers by Cubex.  Here is a link to the listing:

The other cool listing is for a lot of 10 Smart Solo drones made by 3D Robotics.  These are amazing drones with some incredible filmmaking features.  Here is a link to this listing:

Inventories down but economy strong, according to Commerce Department

According to the Commerce Department Q3 economic activity slowed as companies worked off inventory that had built up in their warehouses.  According to a Reuters article by Lucia Mutikani: 

"Businesses accumulated $56.8 billion worth of inventory in the third quarter, the smallest since the first quarter of 2014 and down sharply from $113.5 billion in the April-June period.

The small inventory build sliced off 1.44 percentage points from third-quarter GDP growth, the largest since the fourth quarter of 2012."

The expectation is that activity will pick back up in Q4 because the underlying consumer demand in the economy continues to be strong.  Consumer spending increased by 3.2% in the quarter, which was very strong.

The bottom line for secondary market buyers seems to be  positive, on balance.  The economy is strong, which implies we should see strong holiday spending.  Expectations are for holiday consumer sales increasing around 6-9% over last year.  This will ensure a robust flow of returns and unsold excess in January and February.  So, position yourself now to have capital available after the new year so you will be able to buy some of the highly desirable inventory sure to be flooding the secondary market.

If your capital is tied up in inventory, consider liquidating it through one of the stronger channels out there, like  You will get reasonable value and begin to raise cash for buying products that will turn over more quickly and at higher margins.

Biggest holiday coming for ecommerce

This year will be the biggest yet for e-commerce.  What that means for you and I is a flood of returns heading for the secondary market in a few months.  Typically, around 10% of all sales will become returns and those returns will become liquidation lots in January and February.  

With consumer electronics topping many holiday gift wish lists, you can expect a flood of returns in the category.  Computers, tablets, phones, TV's, Apple TV's and all the other 'hot' gift items this year, will be in ample supply.  Not is the time to begin accumulating capital by reducing your inventory so you are prepared when this tidal wave hits.

Excess inventory creates a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to make money.  As the supply of excess inventory, including returns and overstock inventory, increases after the holidays prices often come down.  The most important contributor to making money buying and selling excess inventory is the price at which you buy.  You make your money when you buy...not when you sell.

My advice:  accumulate cash and be ready to buy after the holidays, when the supply is at its peak.  You will enjoy the benefits of those lower prices for months to come as you sell your stock for a healthy profit.
