Wholesale General Merchandise

Wholesale general merchandise can be exactly what the name implies – almost anything that can be bought and sold in large amounts or, in the case of discount buying, in any amount at greatly reduced prices. What makes the wholesale general merchandise business so inviting is the limitless range of products that can be purchased for a percentage of the retail price and enjoyed or resold.

For example, many of the top wholesale general merchandise suppliers have thousands of distinct items available because of overstock in the warehouse or at retail stores. These companies also pick up many products from closeouts, from stores or warehouses that are clearing their stock to make room for new items. With liquidated inventory, some suppliers buy in bulk, by the truckload or pallet. Many times this is new, undamaged inventory that can be purchased and resold for a tidy profit (everything from kitchen silverware to gas-powered vehicles). Sometimes the individual buyer can get all the benefits that many larger buyers and big companies enjoy, taking delivery of one box or case of product at a significant discount.

A few small examples of wholesale general merchandise that companies have in stock and ready to ship: gloves for general work - $1 to $1.50; stainless steel hip flask – about $4; scissors and shears for various purposes - $1 to $1.50, depending on the supplier. In most cases the minimum order for these products is one case. But the same low prices and shipping costs can apply to clothing, paper products, toothpaste and novelties, to name just a few of the wholesale general merchandise items being offered.

Wholesale general merchandise warehouses and distributors are located in every state, giving those interested in volume buying and saving money numerous choices. Some of these companies started out years ago offering just a few items, but in recent years have expanded their catalogs to include !5,000, 20,000, even 25,000 items. Some of these companies are beginning to get feedback from customers who have found wholesale general merchandise a great way to make extra money as an entrepreneur. In many cases, wholesale general merchandise items that are not seasonal or special order can be shipped the same day. This allows resellers to keep customers happy with fast service. For many, price is the first factor considered when purchasing wholesale general merchandise in volume. But beyond that, availability and quick delivery also make a great deal of difference.

These savvy buyers/sellers of wholesale general merchandise sometimes cater to dollar stores, convenience and grocery stores, gift specialists and non-profit organizations. The range of sites is amazing. So if want a top-quality leather wallet for about $5, a leather messenger bag for less than $10, or a case of dry goods to resell, you can contact one of the many wholesale general merchandise suppliers to get started with an online account. If you are just beginning to look into the wholesale general merchandise business, ask your customer representative if they sell to resellers only or also supply merchandise for personal use at "wholesale" prices. You may just get in touch with a representative that can sell you the desired item in small quantity – at a very low price.
