Fall means big sales for key categories so be prepared!

Ever
try finding a half decent tomato at the grocery store in the middle of
February? Is it pretty difficult right? Usually, they are hard and flavorless.
It’s because as we all know they are not in season and the few that are around
are traveling thousands of miles to your local grocer. Not exactly ideal for
receiving fruit at its peak ripeness. So why are we talking about fruit? Well
because as surprising as this may seem even categories of liquidation
merchandise have their peak seasons. Sure these categories sell year-round, but
sellers experience huge upswings in demand in a few key months’s so you need to
be prepared with ample inventory on hand and remember this takes some time to
receive and process so plan ahead and be ready to sell. Since fall is just
around the corner, let’s look at a few categories that are now ripe for the
harvest.

Fall means back to School- Parents
love it, kids… not so much. Yes, fall means back to school and time for
consumers to spend some serious dollars on new clothing and other goods for the
kids. What sort of money are we talking here? According to Deloitte’s 2018
back-to-school survey, $27.6 billion is the expected total with an average
household spend of $510. Expect this peak season to start in the beginning of
August and plateau near the end of October as consumers and their kids settle
back into their normal routines. Near the end of summer, these children’s
clothing lots are snatched up quickly so do not procrastinate on stocking up
and miss out on the prime selling season. Click here for Wholesale Children’s Clothing

Bedding and bath- There are many
reasons why bedding and bath heats up in the fall months, for starters
consumers tend to upgrade their bedding this time of year before the chill of
the winter months kicks in. Second, a lot of these purchases are made by
college-age students leaving home for the first time who are shopping for those
dorm or apartment essentials such as towels, blankets, pillows, and bedsheets.
This category spikes in early September and then plateau’s near the end of the
year. Click here for Wholesale Bedding and Bath

General merchandise- This category
may surprise you, but it does cover a lot of the essentials and those not so
essentials that kids and young adults are shopping for this time of year.
Looking for small electronics to sell like headphones and Bluetooth speakers?
This category has it. Toys and games? Perfect for placating a disgruntled kid
moping about having to go back to school? Also covered. Stationery items and
small knickknacks for decorating a new apartment or dorm room? Check and check
this category cover’s a lot of your bases for the back to school shopping
season. Click here for Wholesale General Merchandise

Holiday décor heats up- The holiday
season is a lot closer than you may think. Shoppers are already starting to put
a few gifts in the back of their closet for the upcoming season but also are
shopping now for those holiday-themed decorations and accent pieces to make
this season a little bit brighter. Late August early September is when you need
to secure your merchandise as any later, and you could easily be stuck with
nothing but a lump of coal to fill those Christmas stockings. Click here for Wholesale Holiday Décor
