In all seriousness, if anyone has little ones that have their hearts set on a particular toy, doll, etc. between now and Christmas the time to start tracking it down is NOW.

You will not, in all likelihood, find it anywhere including online between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Just a heads up.

I manage a higher end women's clothing store, when we closed on St. Patrick's day we were told we could only stay closed for three weeks because the distribution centers were full and there was no where for the product to go. I was one of the first wave of stores to re-open at the end of May with relatively normal inventory, I usually have around 14,000 units in store. I'm down to 7,000 units and we are being told we will not get replenishment until the end of July or August. Fall product is supposed to be coming in, but apparently they sent all of the summer product back to suppliers, at least that is what we are being told. Business has been booming since we reopened but at this rate I don't know that we will make it to August. If we are forced to close again, there definitely won't be any going back.

Re: Most retailers are 'self-liquidating' - Want to know why? Come inside...
Most retailers are preparing to go out of business. They are self-liquidating because cost and they know they only have a narrow "re-open" window to do it.

And...

Because the big liquidator companies are overwhelmed and can't move the product to other retailers because there are no other retailers now.

They can't even load it and ship it to dump it in Africa or South America.

So this is why.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72337722


That's exactly what is happening at Ross. I was in one yesterday to buy some sheets and at least half the shelves were empty. All the shelves for sheets were empty.

So I went to another Ross. Same scene. With nothing even on the shelves to sell, how can they survive even another month?

naw, trump has put tariffs on china and all the pathways to china. The large corporations set their whole merchandise scheme to but dirt cheap from china and sell inflated to you. They thought Hillary would win and they'd have the monopoly are ready set up.

but Trump won and is closing their lines.
they are going out of business because they owe to the system that is being cut off. it's a debt slave system and it couldn't support itself.

as we move to a new system of gold backed currency with value they will no longer be able to gouge the consumer and all their assets are tied up in worthless paper currency backed by nothing.

this is a tale of get off the pot and they didn't.

if you want to win, start producing/buying in America and reselling - it won't be as profitable but it will be steady.

that's is the new system - steady.
the day of the super rich and the rest of us are coming to a close.

this is going to equal the playing field and I for one am grateful to our President for taking on this fight.

Um, not to be rude, but you didn't tell us any intel or anything, I mean it's obvious they're self-liquidating stores like TJ Maxx, Ross, etc, very obvious.

I mean if you've got some specific intel as to why they are expecting a short window, etc, please fill us in.

That's why I said in a few of my posts that the best thing to do right now is to buy things, everyday things you need, toaster, microwave, pots/pans, clothes, even buy double, because I see a lot of stuff disappearing.

They're not getting their shipments out of China, nothing to put on the shelves.

Simple logistics. Between Trump pissing them off and China's industrial shutdown, they are back logged for months on order I would imagine.

Wally worlds looks like it has stopped selling certain items but most of the Chinese shit is still there. For instance I could get chinese charcoal, but I couldnt get a grill, or lawnmower blades, thats was another thing I noticed. They stopped selling tropical fish too.

Ross is a liquidator though. Keep that mind. All their stuff is a year or at least a few seasons old shelf pulls for the Ritzier stores.

I did notice that BULQ had department store liquidations, but mostly clothes, and clothes are NOT selling well right now.

Cuddleduds and PJs might be selling
