Retail Merchandise Liquidation

Stores, shopping centers and retail manufacturers are home to a wide assortment of products and merchandise. When moving to a new location, downsizing, merging, or closing shop, this merchandise can create a big problem. Retail merchandise consists of new products with ongoing value. This makes tossing it out a waste of potential return on investment. However, managing, organizing, and facilitating sales can seem like an impossible job on top of everything else you take on during a closure.

Michaels Global Trading as a retail merchandise liquidator, helps retail stores facilitate liquidation of leftover retail merchandise. Our team of experienced professionals will work with you from start to finish, assessing inventory, managing relocation, and ensuring some form of return on investment.

Customizable Merchandising Solutions

No two retailers are the same. Therefore, Michaels Global Trading offers no one-size-fits-all solution to excess merchandise. Working closely with retail clients, we develop a strategy for the marketing and resale of products you wish to move, unlike any other retail liquidation consultant. This is outlined in four clear stages:

  • 1 Appraisal

    Michaels Global Trading offers professional appraisal services. We base our evaluations on merchandise of the same style and quality, researching sale prices, checking online databases, and referencing our own sale histories for the best prices.

  • 2 Storage

    Clearing a retail space takes time, and in business time is money. Rather than trying to sell merchandise from your storefront, Michaels Global Trading will help organize, package and store merchandise until it can be sold. This allows you to continue the cleaning process, retrieving damage deposits and meeting deadlines for closure head-on.

  • 3 Staging

    Marketing is tough without a store window, but MGT assists with staging, advertising, and merchandising. This step focuses on merchandise turnover, ensuring products look and sound appealing to consumers.

  • 4 Resale

    Our resale process is unparalleled, aimed at raising the greatest level of capital possible.

Reselling merchandise through this retail liquidation method provides the best return on investment, ensuring fair market value in Canada. In orderly or forced liquidation evaluations, we may recommend auction as a form of resale. Auctions will not ensure the highest resale value but allow you to move items in bulk quickly. Auctions are a good choice for retailers facing financial issues, or tight deadlines. In cases of auction, MGT will facilitate the auction process, preparing merchandise for sale, listing items, and attracting buyers.

Reasons to Use a Retail Merchandise Resale Service

There are many reasons retail business owners turn to merchandise liquidators like Michaels Global Trading to facilitate merchandise management and resale, including:

  • 1 Surplus overstock

    In many cases, surplus inventory can be stored and sold over time. However, some merchandise doesn’t sell as quickly as retailers would like. In these cases, overstock gets stuck, taking up space in your warehouse. MGT takes on your overstock, making room in your storage facility for new products, and helping you sell the surplus inventory for profit.

  • 2 Discontinued merchandise

    When a brand discontinued a product it leaves retailers in a sticky situation. Merchandise can be discontinued for many reasons, including safety or unpopularity. Whatever the case, we will help you clear discontinued products so you can stock your shelves with new ones.

  • 3 Store closure

    Closing a store is a huge job, involving not only resale of merchandise, but removal and redistribution of equipment, shelving, digital tools, and more. Michaels Global Trading works with retailers from start to finish, clearing shelves, organizing equipment, and aiding in the sale, donation, removal, and liquidation of everything you need gone.

  • 4 Bankruptcy

    In cases of bankruptcy, liquidation allows you to reclaim lost finances. Michaels offers competitive evaluations and auction services with a variety of resale solutions based on product and deadline.

Whatever your reason for requiring professional retail merchandise removal and liquidation services, we will help you clear your retail space or remove overstock merchandise from the equation.

Marlon and his team were on time and ready to work. Marlon and his team provided decommissioning and relocation service. Decommissioning included destruction of old Hard Drives, Server removal, De-cabling, Inventory and general cleanup. Team is professional, cooperative, and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate our needs several times. They worked independently and left our premises at spotless condition. During relocation, they made sure we did not have to worry about our possessions on both sides - loading and unloading. Thank you for the excellent customer service and quality!

Would highly recommend. Thanks MGT!
