Wholesale Store Supplies

With the number of opportunities for purchasing wholesale store supplies, setting up and running a retail shop no longer has to be extremely expensive. The number of suppliers in this special area has grown over the years to the point that retail businesses of all sizes have access to good quality (often new) fixtures and supplies.

For example, most of the established, larger wholesale store supplies merchants have the inventory and staff to work with all store sizes, from massive national chain stores to the smallest local shop. These distributors and suppliers generally have direct contact with factories in several countries or even some financial interest in the factory itself. With this kind of system, purchasing wholesale store supplies is a land of great opportunity.

This business may be just a bit different from other wholesale endeavors, because most independent resellers of novelties, small toys, watches and knives set up without much investment in store supplies, beyond the bare necessities. Those who require large amounts of supplies and equipment, such as shelving, lighting, kiosks and so on usually have to find a large, full-service supplier of wholesale store supplies to get what they need. In fact, many of these larger merchants have design staff and craftsmen who build to suit for a particular shop or large store.

But what about those smaller shops that do not make a major investment in permanent fixtures, yet need serious assistance when it comes to everyday supplies? There are plenty of wholesale store supplies merchants to keep these retail/reseller folks in business too. Several suppliers focus on providing such items as price marking labels and guns, price tag stock, shrink wrap etc. in larger lots, at wholesale prices. In fact, these supplies distributors also work with stores of all sizes, from large chain sites to the smallest corner shop.

Of course, as is the case with all true wholesale systems, the amount purchased can certainly affect the price per unit. Most distributors of wholesale store supplies have some minimum order size, with price breaks as the volume goes up. However, many will sell very small portions and still give some discount (so the smallest stores can benefit).

Make no mistake about it. The wholesale store supplies trade is a very competitive field, as competitive as any jewelry, security or office equipment industry. That's why wholesale customers are quite valuable to these wholesale store supplies merchants. Customer service is a major priority with just about all merchants.

There are also some specialty lines in the wholesale store supplies business. These companies work exclusively with resellers and retail stores, as do "one-stop" suppliers. The difference is some of the specialists offer products in one area, such as packaging, boxes and containers or pricing equipment. With the fast growth of the wholesale store supplies industry overall, the suppliers of limited lines have grown as well. As they grow with the industry, the wholesale prices on their special lines can come down.

But price is only one of the important factors. In the highly competitive world of wholesale store supplies, integrity and reliability have to come near the to of the list too.
