Off-Price Apparel Show – May 6-7, 2008

Comments Comments

Off Price Apparel Show

The tag line for this show is, “You have to Buy Right to Sell Right”… This tag line is music to my ears, in retail the money is always made on the buy side and this show is truly one that can help you increase your margins. The jobbers and wholesalers that exhibit at this show have apparel at 20%-70% off on original manufacturer’s wholesale price.

Attendees range from small mom & pop stores to larger chain stores all looking for wholesale and closeout apparel clothing deals. The following apparel categories are represented at the show: Mens Apparel, Womens Apparel, Boy and Girls Apparel, Infant Wear, Footwear, Accessories, Hosiery, Plus Size Clothing, Intimate, Maternity, Outerwear, Licensed and Branded apparel.

** Important note for eBay online apparel sellers regarding branded clothing. When at the show make sure that the jobber or wholesaler has a letter of release for any branded product. This will not solve all issues related to eBay VeRO program, however, it will at least ensure that you did your due diligence before buying and if you can produce the letter to eBay it can help you avoid possible suspension or removal of the auction from the site. I would make sure you get familiar with requirements of this program to avoid possible issues.

Date: May 6th and 7th, 2008

Location: South Point Casino – 9777 Las Vegas Blvd South Las Vegas, NV 89183
