      Buying End of Line

      I have seen on occasion that companies are willing to part with end of line products for less, just to get rid of them. Could this be a potential market, if you have the storage available to hold things out of season?

      This would rely on cash and storage,

      If you can buy end of the line Christmas items and hold onto them for next christmas you could be picking them up for 10-25% of retail price and selling for 80-100% when it comes back round, great money to be made! Good Luck!

      Make sure you can cope with the type of end of line stock you are purchasing. Some end of line stock may include faulty units, used goods, merchandise missing parts or accessories, or even broken goods. Your end of line supplier is required by law to inform you beforehand about the type of end of line stock you are purchasing.

      Two good sites for end of line merchandise in the US are Liquidation.com - Wholesale and Surplus Auctions by Liquidators and Wholesale Closeouts, Customer Returns, Overstock and More - GENCO Marketplace

      If you have the storage and are willing to wait to see a return on your investment, then yes, you could potentially see some serious money out of that.

      If you know of some good charities that need what you can get from the companies that have end of line products, I would say do it. At the very least you'll get a tax write off and a good name in your community. And that's priceless if you're just starting out.

      Keep in mind that there is always a reason why something is relegated to end of line. Trying to re-sell product that another company couldn't sell, is risky at best.
