What is a liquidation centre?
Liquidation centres offer merchandise priced well below retail value, which leads some to question how exactly they do it. It’s because there’s a symbiotic relationship between liquidation centres and retailers that benefits everyone involved.
Some scenarios in which Wayman is able to source products is a store that is closing (or moving) and would like to see their products go to a good home. Knowing his experience in selling liquidated goods, they will contact Wayne for help.
Other shops will reach out to Wayne because they have filed an insurance claim, or even filed for bankruptcy. Others have been shipped the wrong product and don’t want to pay the exorbitant shipping costs to send them back. Enter Wayne to assist.
Wayne’s broad experience and depth of knowledge of the liquidation world is what makes Wayman so special. Through the network of colleagues he has built over the last four decades, Wayne receives calls from business owners he knows and trusts to help them sell products they may not have room for, that they must replace with a new model, that were not what they actually ordered, and so on. The stories as to how Wayne is able to provide such an incredible array of choice to his customers are endless, but the result is always the same. Great savings for Wayman customers.
Wayman Services Liquidation Centre has been in their current location for 14 years, which is conveniently located in southeast Calgary and very easy to get to from all corners of the city.
Liquidation centres are good for the environment
Wayman is also able to proudly carry the moniker of an environmentally friendly business, as they save perfectly good products from being dumped in landfills. There is simply not enough landfill space available in the world for the amount of things that get put in them, and Wayne helps divert items of use away from becoming simple waste. For shoppers who choose retailers based on their conscience, Wayman is an excellent option.
“We offer enough services to companies to pass bargains on to customers and keep perfectly good products from being thrown out,” Wayne says.
