American Merchandise Liquidators has more than 20 years of experience supplying retailers with access to overstocks, surplus, and returned products. “We are contract holders for a number of wholesale and retail companies, meaning we are the only ones they sell surplus product to,” says Mike White, COO and vice president of American Merchandise Liquidators.
The company specializes in selling gifts, apparel, tools, and general merchandise by the pallet or truckload. “We sell what we have for pennies on the wholesale dollar,” White avers. “Some of our merchandise is clearance, some is customer returns, and some is what’s known as dot-com or e-commerce. These are products that were shipped from an online store and either couldn’t be delivered or were opened and returned while still in their packaging.”
American Merchandise is a highly established company that prides itself on customer service and an experienced group of professionals who really understand the industry. The company is headquartered in Alabama, but has warehouses throughout the country.
In late December, American announced an agreement with the “largest retailer in America” to handle that store’s customer returns. The first announcements went out in late December, and White says he expects the project to “go full blast” beginning in January. This new agreement will dramatically increase the amount of product available to American Merchandise buyers.
How to Buy Products
American Merchandise sells lot sizes from one pallet and up. The minimum pallet order is $100. There are no restrictions about who can buy from the company—White says that everyone from retailers to flea market vendors to nonprofits and even individuals have bought pallets. If you provide a business resale license, there is, of course, no sales tax.
Orders are fulfilled immediately and most are delivered within 3-5 days of placing the order. For a current product selection, it’s best to call the company and speak directly with a company representative.
