Appliance sales are currently a $190 billion business and the market is growing. Many consumers are turning towards the purchase of Scratch & Dent appliances to save hundreds of dollars on a new washer, dryer, refrigerator, microwave—which may only have a single dent or scratch on the side that’s not even visible once installed. Ismael Peralta is the owner of six different Discount Appliance and Furniture stores located throughout Texas. He relies on B-Stock and their major retail clients to continually post new liquidation auctions that he can bid on and win so he has the inventory he needs to keep his business running.
Ismael started in 2011 and now is a partner in a multi-million dollar business. He buys a significant percentage of his stock through B-Stock and admits that the auction site helped pull his company out of a hole, “From B-Stock we have probably bought close to half a million in appliances in the last six months. I just bought 14 full truckloads in the last month. You guys have been really good to us. You really helped turned things around for us.”
Ismael estimates that 80% of his merchandise is Scratch & Dent quality. He sells major appliances at both the high and low end. Business is growing quickly and they plan to open a seventh location soon. His top selling item is washers and he’s always looking for more inventory, including dryers and gas ranges in addition to washers.
