A Survey of the Retail Industry
A store closing sale will produce a cash return that eliminates the risk a seller assumes when selling the store as a going business and allowing a buyer to make payments on the sale. An inexperienced buyer may not have the skills and expertise to keep the business profitable after the sale and could eventually default on payments, leaving the seller in an unfavorable financial position.
A survey of the retail industry exploring how retail stores are sold looked at a variety of means to sell the inventory and assets of retail stores, including the following:
- Store Sale — A store is sold to a purchaser who intends to operate it as a business.
- Bulk Sale — Inventory is sold in lots to business purchasers for resale.
- Auction Sale — Inventory and other assets are generally organized in lots and are then sold at auction.
- Store Closing Sale — Inventory and assets are liquidated in a sale to consumers
