In a year that needs ‘real’ discounted product, Teak Closeouts offers reduced garden furniture at savings of 30%-60%. Obviously, it is common practice to claim a discount or sale. Yet, the discounts given by others typically range from 10% off to a selection of undesirable unsellable product.
Online PR News – 02-April-2009 – – Lexington, KY – Introducing the lowest price on real teak garden furniture on the internet. Teak Closeouts, a true discount garden furniture online store, officially opens in the spring of 2009.
Although new websites are common and easy to set-up, an organization is only as good as its structure. There are hundreds of sites with slick website templates and a few containers of ‘purchased product’. This format is not uncommon to teak garden furniture. Armed with $50k-$200k, anyone can buy from hundreds of teak suppliers and open a website. Claims of discount or superior product/manufacturing are common. In the end, the website and organization is just another seller of teak garden furniture – with a web designer and a bunch of pretty pictures.
Teak Closeouts, an organization owned by Salvage Building Materials in Lexington, KY, first opened their doors in 1994. Salvage Building Materials first started importing teak garden furniture in 2000 for local store sales only.
In 2002, Salvage Building Materials made their first large ‘closeout’ purchase of teak benches and teak chairs. The intended production order was destined for Austria and everything was labeled in German. For unknown reasons, the order was canceled or the buyer reneged. The containers arrived in September 2002 and in less than 6 months, sold over 1000 benches by April 11, 2003 – in the fall and dead of winter!
Since 2003, the teak purchases have been small enough to supply the local Lexington market with discounted teak furniture. In early 2008, the decision was made to expand the concept of buying discount teak and efforts were started to convert the Indonesian operation to include an expanded teak role.
By the end of summer 2008, a soft opening was launched in anticipation of spring 2009.
The concept of Teak Closeouts is simple. Buy teak from supplier’s going out of business, excess product, end-of-the-year styles, canceled orders or any reason to get the product less than the standard market value. The task isn’t easy and 1 in 20 deals might result in an agreement. There is a lot of wasted time and effort spent looking and negotiating deals that result in no deal. Teak Closeouts focuses primarily on the mid-level teak market – since this is the most affordable
