It's important to understand how critically important a "broom clean" store is to your recovery and profit!
We spotted this post (from a furniture retailer) on Facebook today and thought it would interest potential clients of PFP.
We had spoken to this retailer about managing their event, but they chose a well-known, old, promotional sales company instead. Their logic was; They thought they would save money on the fee. We try to explain to our clients, it's not about the fee that the promoter charges, it's about the recovery and profit.
The promoter ran a store closing for this retailer and the result was; The retailer had no logical choice but to reopen.
Why? Their promoter didn't sell all of their inventory in the allowed time. There was so much left, the store owner had to rent another warehouse to hold it all (since he had agreed to exit his building).
When a PFP client runs a Store Closing or Going out of Business Sale, we can offer a "Broom Clean" facility as part of our written guarantee. As we mentioned, this unfortunate family did not use PFP for their final sale! Any meaningful recovery on their inventory will very likely be eaten up in rent and post-sale expenses dealing with the leftover goods. For a successful event, your best choice is always going to be PFP, call or click today for details.
