Hey all, Here is the deal. A friend of mine owns a massive lighting company. They have an entire warehouse of lights that are either not selling or they are old trends etc. I will post the list here. The opportunity is for me to figure out how I can sell these lights. I don't have to pay for a warehouse or the product which is a plus. However I also can not advertise the company that makes the products, but when a customer buys them obviously the company is on the box which is ok. I cant say the company because of there contracts with Wayfair, Home Depot, etc.

So how Can I sell these products?! I mean i might have some luck on the list or letgo maybe an ebay store etc, but idk.

Are you selling at the closeout price? What do the numbers under the date column mean?

The date column is the quanity, and the closeout is pretty much my cost, and the DN is the average listing that is retail for customers. All prices are negotiable

Just a quick thought...pound the pavement locally and find any store that doesn't have a lighted "open" sign and offload those that way.

For that item at least I can try that. I imagine most stores do
Look for grand openings on your local Chamber of commerce FB for new businesses. If they have a ribbon cutting photo you may be able to see if there is a sign in their window without even leaving the house.
