Any tips on how to market and sell open boxes, freight damage, returns, and floor sample home furniture?
We just opened furniture store that sells returns, freight damage and open box home furniture. We get our products from www.homelegance.com. I am having a real hard time to get people into the store, since we are located in an industrial area with no foot traffic. I put ads in craigslist and local newspapers and it is just not effective. Once we get people in, they usually buy because of our great prices and that they don’t mind that the items are a little damage. I guess the question is does anyone out there have any tips on who might be interested in these items in bulk or where else should I advertise and call. We just have too much of these furniture and our supplier wants us to move these items quickly. Any pointers would be helpful. Also we are trying to develop an online presence at www.stufurhome.com to move these items online. Do you think that will work?
