At the end of summer we held a two day end of season outdoor furniture sale at our warehouse. It was the first time we opened the warehouse to the general public so we really didn't know what to expect. As described in our Wholesale Insights article, Planning the Warehouse Clearance Sale, we learned a lot of lessons along the way, both during the planning phase and during the sale itself. After the sale, we reviewed our action plan to identify what worked well, what we will keep doing, what we would like to do better and what we will stop doing. Go to full article

We also like to review the plan after we implement it, so that we are able to make improvements based on recent experience. At the moment we are getting ready to hold a warehouse clearance sale. Here are some of the lessons we have learned so far, along with the actions that we will be putting in place for our next clearance sale. Go to full article

It's rush hour at the warehouse!
To help our retailers keep stock on their shelves at this busy time of year, we are actively working with our delivery partners, TNT Couriers, Star Track Express and Australia Post, to ensure that stock gets to you as quickly as possible once your order is finalised. No matter how big or small your purchase, we'll despatch it to you as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Don't wait too long to order for Christmas though, as we are unable to guarantee delivery before Christmas for any orders finalised after 5 pm on 17th December.
