Extended Store Hours Starting March 13

ExtendedHours1-350x263

As a response to customer feedback and our abundance of new deals, our store hours are extending to Monday thru Saturday 9AM to 9PM, and Sunday 12PM to 6PM. An increase in new, quality merchandise means we have more to sell and want to give you more time to shop these incredible bargains. Our team of friendly and trustworthy staff is also growing in the store front and the warehouse, so anytime you visit you’ll receive an excellent customer service experience.

The time change officially begins on Saturday, March 13, and we anticipate a Spring Yard Sale to kick off the new hours. It just so happens our store hours’ change also falls on Daylight Savings Time weekend, so get ready for extra daylight and extra savings!

If you’ve visited our store in the past month, you will have noticed many more changes both inside and out! Customers now have better accessibility to the sales floor since the construction of our ramp from the parking lot to the front door. And have you noticed a clearer, view of our building from the intersection of Red Oak and Rock Quarry? What about the newly pained “Open to the Public” sign just below our truck dock? Our new customers sure have noticed, making it easier for you to give directions to the friends and family you refer to us.

Inside, the food and grocery aisles now fill most of the store’s front room and a new cooler now holds essentials like milk, butter, and eggs! We have also expanded more aisles of merchandise in the back of the warehouse for retail shoppers to better locate and discover amazing deals. All of these changes have been as a response to your feedback. Soon, we’ll be answering another request that we’re sure you’ll be excited about!

Make sure you are on our Friday newsletter list to receive updates to the hours change, upcoming Yard Sale, and other specials we run in the store every week! Sign up today in store at the register or online at http://www.WLExperts.com.

WLExperts Locates Lost Treasured T-Shirts in Liquidation Shipments

t-shirts-treasured-tee-rescueWhen our warehouse crew was sorting through our latest shipment of expired and overstock online deals, they came across curious packages. The first package was a simple white envelope stuffed to capacity. It did not contain luxury jewelry, bamboo sheets, or bluetooth headphones, but the value of what was inside could not be measured with dollar signs.

Inside of the first package, and two others that we found, were T-shirts, some already worn, some with dates from over 10 years ago. Many documented races, concerts, family reunions, and other important tokens of participation and reminiscence. These were special shirts sent out with the confidence that they would be returned as memorable quilts, each cotton memory woven together with care.

Months passed, and then came the heartbreaking realization that the company responsible for turning the tees into quilts was never going to follow through with their agreement. It’s believed that some of the packages containing these significant shirts were never even opened by the receiving party, contrary to emailed guarantees that the back-ordered quilts were in queue to be completed and shipped out. Those responsible never even saw the pricelessness of clothing that represented magical vacations, exciting athletic events, first days of school, and past loved ones.

Many customers took advantage of promotional coupons the quilting company offered through popular online deal sites. When the company did not deliver (and all but disappeared completely), these deal sites did their best to refund customers their money and return their memories. However hundreds of shirts did not find their ways back to the original senders.

We don’t know exactly how these 3 packages of lost t-shirts found their way into our warehouse, mixed in with the usual inventory we receive from a third-party liquidation company. It could have been due to a change in address or even a misunderstanding on how important these envelopes and boxes were at a previous location. Regardless, our first move was to find the rightful owner of these shirts and make sure they got home.

It was incredible to find a Facebook group of over 500 people that was behind the cause to retrieve lost shirts, most of the members having waited for nearly a year after the quilting fiasco to get their shirts back. The dedication of people like Donna Tilson, one of the administrators of the Facebook group, has already made sure that a majority of the packages have been returned to their rightful owners. Even within a few days of us finding T-shirt packages in our own warehouse, according to the group another 7 packages were shipped back to their original senders, bringing peace of mind to many more families.

The fact that we can help close even just 3 more cases has brought everyone at our store a great amount of joy and hope! I could hear in the voice of Nadya, owner of the first package we found, how grateful and emotional she was just to know that her precious memories were making their ways back to her.

Our hope is that other liquidation stores and companies like ours will be on the lookout for these humble boxes full of T-shirts that someone across the country is missing terribly. In reality, it seemed pretty obvious that after finding these misplaced package, anyone would make an effort to send them back. It’s been surreal learning the depths of loss this quilting incident caused, and reading the hopelessness of those who fear they may never see their shirts again.

We had no idea that these 3 curious boxes were part of something much larger, and want to tell those still searching to stay hopeful for just a little longer now that a new avenue of possibilities has been opened. A big shout-out to our warehouse team for finding the value in these boxes and setting them aside for us to investigate. Also to our shipping department team who have been busy preparing our brand new e-commerce site in time for the holidays. For those with boxes heading their way, we’re sure this is a gift they’ll never forget!

Here’s why we can’t wait for Spring at W&L Experts

Aside from hating the intermittent cold and missing the consistent warmth of spring, everyone at Wholesale & Liquidation Experts is excited for a new season of deals and deliciousness! Let me explain.

big-spring-clean-logoEveryone should be familiar with the concept of Spring Cleaning, and at the store we’ve already begun sprucing up to make our store even more organized and easy to navigate for customers. We’ve built new spaces to efficiently organize our retail, wholesale, and online departments, and our warehouse team’s been working hard to get great products on the sales floor quickly. What we’ve realized from this is that we have a LOT of products; some new from our weekly shipments, some that have sat on the shelves for a little too long! So with winter waning and spring just around the corner, we’re thinking it’s time to make more space for the new!

Can you say CLEARANCE?
