Let’s talk about shelf pull and customer returned clothing from Macy’s and Bloomingdale’s. Macy’s has a liquidation division where they wholesale clothing by the pallet; this clothing is great for discount stores, eBay, and flea markets.
You can buy direct from Macy’s liquidation division or opt to purchase smaller quantities from a wholesale liquidator, but smaller quantities always translates to a higher cost per unit. In smaller 50-100 count lots of shelf pull apparel, expect to pay somewhere between $4-$6 per piece in a mixed assorted lot (various sizes, brands, and styles). When purchasing mixed assorted lots, remember you will have no control over what you are receiving. You get what you get!

If you decide to make a wholesale purchase direct from Macy’s there are a couple of requirements you should be aware of:
- You must supply a resell tax ID (also referred to as a tax certificate or resale number) upon the new liquidation buyers application.
- You must be prepared to spend a minimum of $3,000 (customer returned pallets) up to an average spend of $6,000 – $9,000 for what they call a “job out,” which is simply multiple pallets.
- As a direct Macy’s buyer you will be responsible for arranging your own freight once a purchase has been made.
When buying from Macy’s direct, you can chose from several categories of clothing including men’s, women’s, and children’s only lots. Macy’s also sells Job Lots of domestics (towels, comforters, pillows, etc), as well as table top gift-ware.
