POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING! Contact Katie for this excellent plan of helping designers sell old stock.
My name is Katie Gartner and I recently founded Frock Shop Sales LLC as a way to relieve local Denver designers and retailers of the financial burden of excess inventory and samples. In an effort to gain some monetary return from what would otherwise be taken as a total loss, I will put on a weekend sale in the downtown Denver area offering customers an assortment of inventory at a discounted price. Sales will be held semi-annually to begin with and will grow from there. I will take on the responsibility of securing a venue, gathering inventory, marketing the sale and executing each sale successfully. The business model I have chosen to follow is that of the traditional sample sale. Sample sales are a proven way to turn excess inventory into profit. The terms of the sale will be 60/40 (Designers 60/Frock Shop 40).
There are many benefits to designers and retailers in choosing an avenue such as Frock Shop to alleviate themselves of excess inventory and turning it into cash. This sale will be done in a “pop-up” shop type of setting which will create a feeling of exclusivity and give the customer the sense that this is their last opportunity to purchase these goods. It will also showcase your merchandise in a different setting. Moving your merchandise out of your typical shops and showrooms will help the merchandise be seen in a new way and create a new sense of enthusiasm towards your lines. This sale is a way to help you reach customers that you may have not reached yet due to various reasons such as limited funds and in turn create a larger following for you and your business. I truly believe this is an exciting new way for all the designers and retailers of Denver to make some money on inventory that would have become a financial burden and will be done in a way that is little work for you and your already busy schedule.
Date and location will soon be announced! If you have excess inventory and would like to participate in this sample sale event, please contact me at the information provided below. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future.
