Online Overstock Shopping Site Retailbuyers.com Updates Site for 2008

Furniture World News on

Retailbuyers.com, the exclusive home furnishings and giftware industry’s online overstock shopping site, has revamped their growing web site and launched it earlier this week, just in time for the upcoming High Point Market being held April 7-13. The Canadian-based group initially began in 2005 by providing services to the CGTA giftware suppliers in Canada. Today, the web site is dedicated to providing a unique wholesale shopping experience for home furnishings and gift retailers throughout North America to purchase suppliers’ overstock, clearance, and discontinued merchandise. With a fresh new look and added benefits, such as providing supplier advertising space on the front page, incorporating the “RetailerToRetailer” web site, and including additional categories with sorting capabilities, Retailbuyers.com continues to gain popularity with retailers and suppliers looking for unique opportunities to sell their products. In July 2007, site founder and CEO Deborah Lalande launched RetailerToRetailer, where retailers have the opportunity to purchase merchandise at or below wholesale cost directly from other retailers who may have experienced slow sales, have discontinued select merchandise, or simply have excess inventory in their warehouse. Retailers can now access RetailerToRetailer directly through Retailbuyers.com. The format for the site is the same, in which registration includes a yearly hosting fee of $99.95, allowing the seller to list unlimited product information along with photography. Retailbuyers.com receives a small commission on orders shipped. Registration is open to any retailer of home furnishings, gifts and decorative accessories, accents, rugs, or other home décor products across North America. Lalande will be promoting the site during the High Point Market and is happy to discuss the concept with Market attendees. Lalande, herself a former furniture and gift store retailer, states, “Retailbuyers.com provides an invaluable service for the home furnishings industry by creating viable solutions to an age-old problem of ‘dead inventory’ which can negatively impact a retailer’s bottom line.”
