How to Close a Nursery and Garden Center with Liquidation- A Case History:
David & Janet Lockwood, owners of Tem Bel Nursery & Garden Center in Temple Texas, needed to close their store due to cash flow problems resulting from a down economy. Since they were really impressed with the G.A Wright web-site as well as the materials they received at no cost in the mail, they made the decision to hire G.A Wright for their Store Closing Event. Their goal was to retire from the retail industry in a short period of time and to sell the inventory and fixtures at the highest price possible.
The Store Closing Sale
The first day of the sale they had nearly 200 customers waiting in line to get into the store before they opened. It was the biggest day in sales they have had in their 28 years of business. Throughout the day they had lines of people at all three registers running out of the show room and into their nursery center behind the building. Additionally, during the days after the sale started many of the customers came back and made repeat purchases. Almost every piece of merchandise was sold before the sale was set to end. Even fixtures had been sold prior to the final day. It was a true wall-to-wall blow out sale.
