There has been a very significant quantity of brand new (slightly older model) appliances selling on BStockSupply.com over the past month or two. The lots seem to be continuing and the inventory looks fabulous. Dishwashers, refrigerators, washers and dryers have all been available in various quantities. Brands represented include: Frigidaire, KitchenAid, Whirlpool and many others. I would highly recommend taking a look.
This is interesting. You can now visit https://events.bstock.com and bid on the furniture and other fixtures being used at the Rio Olympics in the athletes' apartments!
There are 31 towers that will house around 18,000 athletes, coaches, trainers, etc. Each of these apartments is furnished with the basic necessities (beds, couches, chairs, tables, wardrobes, etc.). All of this furniture will be sold and moved out of the village immediately after the Olympics ends. Well, you can bid on and purchase, in container load quantities, any of this stuff you like!
In addition to apartment furniture, they are selling crowd control barriers, lockers, and other random assets.
This is a slightly different marketplace for the B-Stock Sourcing Network, since it is not selling inventory for a retailer or manufacturer, but for secondary market buyers, it represents a great opportunity nonetheless. Check it out and get a piece of the Rio Olympic Games!
The apparel industry has been taking quite a beating over the past few quarters. Companies like Macy's have reported real weakness in sales in this vertical. On May 12, a Fortune headline read, "Kohl's Joins the Retail Bloodbath With Dismal Sales", as further weakness in sales hit the company hard. In fact, at the time, Kohl's shares were down by 50% from their 52 week high. The Gap has suffered similarly.
As Fortune said, "What these companies have in common is that they are very reliant on apparel, a category with an industrywide oversupply that has led retailers to discount, discount, discount to win business."
Of course, this has created a massive opportunity for secondary market buyers. There has never been so much quality inventory flooding the market and it is driving prices down.
Two new marketplaces have launched in the B-Stock Sourcing Network that can help you take advantage of this golden opportunity. HSN and QVC have both launched new liquidation marketplaces. They are selling a wide variety of goods, but apparel is a big part of it. Lots are large and small, new and returns. They have something for everyone. You should definitely check them both out.

Wow! Check out this liquidation opportunity immediately. Good quantities of premier brand handbags in various conditions available right now. I see all the best brands here (Chanel, Coach, Prada, Versace, Kate Spade, Burberry, and many others). Grades vary from A to D with very clear definitions of what this means. This lots close on Monday, so don't hesitate. Someone will make a lot of money on these lots.
These lots look a lot like Macy's liquidation lots in the premier handbag category, but better.
HERE is a link to the inventory (registration required).

This is big news. So big, I created a page on the blog for it so it will be more easily accessible.
In a nutshell, Target, which has been testing a new liquidation marketplace in the B-Stock Network, has now opened their marketplace to all resellers. Check out the details in the page and get yourself registered for the opportunity to bid on some amazing deals.
It looks like B-Stock has launched a great new site for liquidation buyers this past week. Woot.com, the original 'deal of the day' site (now owned by Amazon), is their newest customer. The site looks great and appears to be selling brand new Amazon excess inventory in liquidation loads.
I highly recommend checking this one out.
It looks like two more great sourcing opportunities have launched on the B-Stock Sourcing Network. The two new sites are Groupon Goods in the UK and Destination Maternity in the US.
The GrouponGoods marketplace is selling returns and other excess inventory that is all located in Europe, so it will be best for buyers over there. Destination Maternity, on the other hand, is all located in the US. However, the rules of the site state that all merchandise must be exported to a market outside of the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Here are links to the sites:
