Surplus Grocery Buyers Near Me
Surplus grocery buyers “near me” are far more abundant than you could imagine. Lewisco Holdings provides the link in the chain by buying goods from the primary marketplace and distributing them to select, vetted buyers within nontraditional customer channels.
Lewisco Holdings, the foremost liquidator in the US, is an independent entity that purchases goods for the specific purpose of redistribution within appropriate places. We have a lengthy history of successful operations, with the capacity to liquidate all quantities of goods, throughout the continental United States, season after season.
Products Welcomed within the Lewisco Holdings Inventory
Opportunity buyers considering shopping with Lewisco Holdings will find a wide range of products within our inventory. We buy and redistribute all types of groceries – frozen, refrigerated, canned, and dry – as well as alcohol-free, shelf-stable beverages, wet and dry cat and dog food and treats, and a wide array of household goods like HBA items, paper goods, and cleaning implements and chemicals.
Lewisco Holdings purchases products from thousands of different producers, distributors, and wholesalers. The goods that we buy are directed outside of the traditional customer routes because they’re no longer in the pristine condition required for retail sales. Product conditions include:
- Overstocked and overrun products;
- Items near or passed expiration or best by dates;
- Leftover versions of products with recent updates to packaging or recipe;
- Closeout and marked down goods;
- Leftovers of a discontinued product line;
- Canceled or turned down loads;
- Seasonal, holiday, or promotional items;
- Any otherwise slow-moving products.
Lewisco Holdings’ Process of Distribution
Liquidation without customer channel protection is inappropriate. We at Lewisco Holdings pride ourselves on protecting the originally intended customers from seeing the brand in less than ideal conditions. For this reason, we don’t sell to certain first-line market members including:
- Full-line distributors
- Convenience stores
Instead of the originally intended customers, we have a vetted group of hundreds of buyers to whom we target sales. These alternative buyers agree to exercise discretion in regard to use and sales of the products purchased. Examples of the types of customers we welcome include all of the following and more:
- Privately-owned mom-and-pop shops;
- Community food pantries;
- Prisons and jails;
- After-school programs;
- Deep-discount salvage grocery stores;
- Farmers markets;
- Animal shelters;
- Flea market vendors;
- Additional alternative customer channels.
We target sales to buyers who are completely removed from the original sales channels. From one coast to the other, we cater to select opportunity buyers who commit themselves to following all manufacturer restrictions. Lewisco Holdings buyers commit to the following rules:
- NO display of branded products;
- NO advertising;
- NO wholesaling;
- NO sales outside of geographic boundaries.
To further protect the brand, Lewisco Holdings offers repackaging under a private label, Mabel’s Farms, for difficult to conceal branding.
Before we sell any products, we buy inventory. This process begins when wholesalers, distributors, retailers, or manufacturers reach out to us for a quote. We’ll make an offer that same day in many cases and provide immediate payment and same- or next-day pickup when we agree to a price.
Additional services that we provide include acting as a proxy sales team, offering a turnkey auction connection, or searching for specific products on behalf of our buyers.
Lewisco Holdings supplies buyers throughout the continental US with the opportunity to purchase liquidated goods, so no matter where you may be, a search for “near me” should supply our services as a quality choice.
