Merchandize Liquidators LLC, a wholesale liquidator and distributor founded in 2003, is anticipating being named to the 2011 Inc. 500, an annual list of the 500 fastest-growing privately held companies in the U.S. “Inc. Magazine” will release the list in August. Last year, the Florida based company was ranked 1,124th on the Inc. 5000 with 2010 revenue of $2.2 million. “This year we’re going to make the Inc. 500. Our 2011 gross sales were $5.4 million, up 265 percent in three years,” says Joe Martin, owner and president. The company’s percentage revenue growth for the four-year period through 2011 was more than 700 percent. Martin says he expects gross sales to be around $10 million this year and to reach $20 million within two years.
Overstock Merchandise Popular with Flea Market Vendors
Merchandize Liquidators offers a vast line of general merchandise and items currently available include clothing, cosmetics, electronics, health and beauty, school supplies, bed and bath, jewelry, handbags, toys, housewares and gardens, furniture and footwear. The company specializes in buying overstock merchandise, Martin explains. “We bring containers in and resell the merchandise to other wholesalers, online vendors, exporters that sell it to other countries, discount store owners and flea market vendors—we sell to a lot of flea market vendors.” Merchandize Liquidators sells by the case, pallet, load and truckload.
“My ultimate goal is to make sure people can make money with my merchandise,” Martin stresses, “so before I buy anything I ask myself not just how much I can sell it for but how much my client can sell it for as well. That is basically one of the key elements to our growth. I work on a very small marginal profit and move a lot of merchandise fast.”
