Technology is changing by leaps and bounds in the modern-day world. Take for instance computer processors. Their speed is increasing at a terrific pace. If you buy the fastest computer today you have no guarantee that tomorrow it wonít be obsolete behind a better, and faster processor. This is what factories have to contend with on a daily basis. Technology and products that were once considered cutting edge a few years back can become (if not already) obsolete. So what do these wholesale suppliers have to do with these products that are currently in transition? The companyís option is to carry out liquidations regularly. But even before we get there letís have look at this first.

When a company manufactures products in large quantities and releases them into the market, they eventually get replaced by a new item. Then these products are sent to wholesale closeouts and liquidations specialists. There are some products that are slightly blemished and cannot be sold as new and must be dispersed at great discounts. If they were to sell these products at retail outlets certain customers would return them for a replacement, even though it is still a great product.

Often store returns are given to these wholesale closeout firms as well. Once an item is returned, the product is (often times) not put on the shelf again but is stored. With time these great items accumulate and there is virtually no space to store them, even in large facilities. The next thing the management does is send the items to be cleared away; including the obsolete ones that I had mentioned earlier. In such a case only wholesale liquidations are feasible options because these companies need to spend time making money on retail items instead of focusing on selling returned products.

Manufacturers have been known to advertise for closeouts in a bid to have traffic visiting their facility. By doing this, some visitors will find new things that they are interested in and will end up buying. That is a plus to the company doing this. The liquidations at hand are usually witnessed by a lot of people coming into the factory because the price is slashed to encourage people to buy. Products that have been on the shelves for so long are also included in the close out to clear the shelves for new stock.

A large number of businesses have closeouts on regular basis. This includes big furniture vendors and even those who deal in cars. Auto dealers are known to have liquidations twice a year; during fall and during spring to clear for new products; this is because items that sit for a long time are often times not worth keeping when it can be replaced by something better. Especially with the challenging economic times people prefer to save as much as they can and attempt to buy a car during close outs.

The same case is true for furniture vendors. Some furniture does not sell well during winter. A case in point is Patio furniture; so the company strives to have it cleared before winter sets in. This is done through wholesale closeouts and liquidations. If a product doesnít sell during the closeout then the company has to store the furniture through the winter. This is more costly than selling the furniture at a low price. So if you want cheap furniture, just know the bargain times and shop around.

There are other manufacturers and wholesale stores who have closeouts once a year. An example would be stores that sell lamps. In case a manufacturer closes down, stores that were selling their products hold a close out sale to clear these products. Then they look for other companies to take the place of the manufacturer who has closed down.
