In the liquidation industry, we refer to mixed assortments as general merchandise. When you walk into a big box department store like Walmart, Target, Kmart, or Meijer, you are quickly overwhelmed with the variety of merchandise that is available to you. Departments are created to organize the sheer volume of items. A truckload or pallet of assorted general merchandise can contain any of the items you could see in the department store. Hardly ever are two pallets identical.

The Representation:

Distressed merchandise is sold by representation: When you receive your shipment you should expect the product to be delivered as represented. AML makes extreme effort to accurately represent each shipment. The representation will explain the condition of the merchandise as well as the product categories.

Liquidation General Merchandise

One example of a Representation could be:

Assorted General merchandise customer returns from XYZ store, mostly hard items, contains no food items, no perishables, no clothing. Expect a waste factor from 20- 25%. The price is based on 22% of the wholesale price of $50,000. There is a manifest. There are 24 pallets on the truckload.
