Liquidation world has gone downhill IMHO of late, the word "liquidation" has seemed to disappeared from their sales approach. A whopping 40% off the sticker price (full retail) last load of crap from a US pharmacy CANNOT be considered liquidating... this stuff has sat there for 3 months.. rather than be organised its all in big boxes mixed together... going to be like all the radio shack stuff that sat in their stores for almost a year before they blew everything out for 5 items for a dollar... now that is liquidating..

I've had my eye on some bath fixtures that have sat at the same price for 4 months... will wait unil they are 75% off...

I guess its just another case of a retailer getting greedy and buying stuff for pennies on the dollar and tring to get close to retail prices.... bring back the old business plan where items kept on getting reduced the longer they sat...

I'm sorry how can you consider 40% off the U.S. retail price not liquidating? Where talking U.S. retail here not Canadian retail pricing and to receive an additional 40% off that price! And the bath fixtures I believe your talking about the Interbath and Ondine products have you compared the prices against other Big Box Retailers my wife works for Canada's #1 hardware retailer and I'm sorry but were at least 30% in some cases as much as 80% off their prices on those fixtures. You might think that I'm just standing up for this because I'm a employee of the company, but I'm sorry even as a consumer when I can buy items that much cheaper than any other retailer in Canada, I would rather keep the money in my own pocket. If we were to constantly liquidate all of our product at 5 for a $1 we wouldn't be in business for more than a week.

I would have to agree on the lack of appeal of 40% of the pharmacy stuff. That's the kind of price I would expect on a good sale, but considering that you have to hunt through the piles of stuff in hope of finding something useful, I would expect a bigger discount to consider it liquidating.

That being said, there are still some good deals available. I picked up Shadow of the Giant (Orson Scott Card) for $4 for a hardcover. Considering it lists for $35.95CAN (according to the cover) and sells for about $16CAN at amazon.ca, that seems more a 'liquidation' price to me.

Like any other store, good deals can be hit and miss.

My god.. have you not shopped on ebay??? I have bought brand new faucets for 80% of retail, including shipping brand new....you want a link to a seller ??

And yes 40% off sticker price, isnt liquidating, (ITS JUST A SALE) ummm canadian dollar is at par.. and in fact US prices are higher than canadian these days so...plus the fact you have to rummage through crap and distressed packaging, expiry dates, no warranty, no returns... stick to the 75% off that you advertise, and people will find it worth it... and plus your stock will go as fast as you buy it.. tell your bosses to make money off volume not greed..plus you guys wouldn't have to move your stock around so often...thats why you had to "liquidate" all the radio shack crap.. you couldn't move it @ 40% off retail ( already way overinflated)

your furniture deal isn't so hot... much of it is cheap crap, damaged from being shipped around so much, poorly assembled, no returns no warranty...

I can get 30-50% off at any major retailer, with a return policy and a warranty... liquidation world buys close outs/bankruptcy stock etc etc.. and offers none of the above... the fact that they pay pennys on the dollar for merchandise that they try to sell, at /or close to retail is.. well if you are in this forum, ridiculous...


Your furniture deal... cold cold cold....


If liquidation stuck to 75% off "STICKER"/retail price, then that would be why people like me shop there... BTW you do have a great deal on interior SCHLAGE door handles for $8.00.. retalis for $35 plus... oh yeah... 75% off thats why I bought 5!!!

slash those rain shower heads to 5 and 10 bucks and watch your stock disappear!!


Ummm... I get emails from this site for those intersted in LIQUIDATION/CLOSEOUTS by the container load

http://www.tdwcloseouts.com/

but considering the price and this is what alot of ebay etailers are selling you may want to grab a few RFD freinds....no different than the old future shop skids of returns people could buy for $1000 bucks a pop a few years ago!!!

Liquidation world sells crap that no other retailer would dare sell. the merchandise is old and defective. their buyers are obviously stupid because they buy crap that is useless. ie white shirts where the collars bleed like crazy.

After the Brantford Warehouse Sale ended they were left with one trailer of product, which we have received in our Leamington Liquidation World location. The prices will be insane.

You can't even find this set used for that price! Again this is only at the Leamington Liquidation World and will be available for sale this Thursday, March 13th at 9 a.m. don't miss out!

you can always do better by shopping sales at other stores. ive had too many things turn out to be defective to have any faith any liquidation world. hate to think where their food comes from. sometimes stuff goes on sale and you can get good prices. they sell a lot of stuff people think is expensive but is not.

I go into Liquidation World every time I go to Thunder Bay and 80% of the time I don't see anything I want or that is decent "BUT" 20% of the time I find a slamming deal on something. All depends on what your looking for.

It all depends on what your looking for.
You can find good deals...and sometimes it's worth while to go to ther discount stores.

I do agree...LW is a hit or miss....if prices were lower...alot of the stuff would clear out and not look like "Consumers Distributing" from the 80's (where you have tons of inventory that isn't moving.
(I can give plenty of other examples of what LW looks like...but if they lower the price...alot of stuff would be gone and they would be able to refresh their stock, make the place look nicer and at least attracting).

LW has a lot of junk, but yet sometimes you can find something of value at a bargain. Often you have rumage through a pile of stuff in a bid to find what your after. This also can be said about other stores that liquidate items.
