Published at 03/27/2012 19:34:37


If you want to be in the clothing business, you can start by looking for a distributor or any supplier for your items. A common source for clothing items are wholesale clothing lots. They usually offer lower prices since you’re going to buy in bulk. If you want to know how to purchase clothing in these wholesale lots, you can follow these steps.

Step 1

Step 1: List down what to purchase

Clothing lots have a lot of types of clothes and usually, they’re not always properly arranged unlike the ones that you see in shops or department stores. If it took you a long time to look for clothes in those shops or department stores, it would take you a longer time if you look for them in wholesale clothing lots. So when you go there, you want to go directly to what you want to purchase. It would be best to have a list on the clothing that you would want to purchase. You would also have to list on the number of each piece that you’re going to have as well as their sizes.

Step 2

Step 2: Look for wholesale lots

If you’re planning to purchase clothes in clothing lots, you need to know where they are. As much as possible, look for those that are just near your place since you’re most probably going to buy a lot of clothing in the wholesale clothing lots. You can either ask your friends or neighbours if they know any wholesale clothing lot just near your place. You can also ask some shops especially clothing boutiques since most probably they also buy their clothing in any of those clothing lots. You can also turn to the internet for help to know the exact location for these clothing lots.

Step 3

Step 3: Identify the price for the clothing

When you are now able to find a wholesale clothing lot, you need to observe the place and identify the price for the clothing that you are going to purchase. Also look for the special deals per type of clothing so that you will have an idea the actual price for each. Don’t forget to take note of these prices because you might also want to look for other brands of the same type of clothing. This would allow you to compare the prices and help you identify which is cheaper.

Step 4

Step 4: Assess the clothing

More often the clothes being sold in wholesale clothing lots are slightly damaged, but there are some that are not. You have to make sure to assess the clothing first before finally purchasing the items. Make sure to observe the type of cloth for each type of clothing and observe if it is properly sewn. Also make sure that the clothes don’t have stains that may be hard to get rid of. If you’re planning on purchasing clothes with prints or any embroidery, make sure the prints or the embroidery doesn’t have any damages.

Step 5

Step 5: Make a bargain

There are some owners of wholesale clothing lots that allow customer to bargain. Usually, when you buy wholesale clothing, you can bargain based on bulk. So the more items you buy the greater discount you’ll get. Make sure to ask the owners or any sales representative first if they can give you a certain price for your orders for this certain amount of clothing that you would purchase. Always make sure to sound convincing and make sure you know how to bargain properly.


If you follow all the steps above, you are guaranteed to receive offers you would never regret!
