You may be concerned about what to do with your store right now. Attracting customers to your store is becoming increasingly difficult, more people are buying online, it is harder to get merchandise and the speed with which inventory can grow stale is increasing; employees are leaving (or not willing to work in the first place), and the list goes on…
As a result, your sales are likely lagging or downright suffering, and you’re pondering all your options.
Or maybe you’ve been in business a while, figured some things out along the way, built a nest egg and decided to sell your business and retire…but can’t find a qualified buyer, and you’re pondering all your options.
But when you got into business you probably didn’t give much consideration to your exit strategy, did you? Don’t worry, it’s not your fault! The people that helped you get into and/or start your business had no real incentive (or knowledge) to discuss your options on the other side with you.
I’ve been on both sides, and I can help…
A well planned, properly facilitated professional store closing sale has proven to be the most viable option all savvy retailers pursue – while everyone else keeps holding on to the hope that “one more season” will turn things around.
You don’t want to be like everyone else, do you?
Of course not!
Since you want be amongst the savvy retailers and move on to the next chapter in your life with profit and dignity without hassle or worry, then you’d agree that a store closing sale is the best path for you, right?
My name is Travis Walker, founder of Retail Sales PRO, and for nearly 25 years I have been helping independent retailers like you quickly and profitably convert inventories and assets to FAST CASH with structured retail sales events.
Always remember: the thinking that got you to where you are cannot be the same thinking that will get you where you want to go!
The rules of retail change quite a bit with a store closing sale, and I know the secrets that no other consultant will tell you (hint: understanding consumer psychology is a big part of the massive marketing ecosystem that must be employed for optimum success)!
As a retail store liquidation expert, I will not only help you with all the pre-launch items that need to be done (when and how to let your staff know, permitting that may be needed, and many other things); I will implement hyper-effective consumer driven marketing psychology FOR YOU that drives TONS of qualified traffic into your store…
I will also help you:
– Monitor the right metrics to maintain momentum (and your profits).
– Make sure you know precisely what discounts to launch with, when to make new discounts, and what items to make discounts on.
– Sell your inventory (even fixtures) to the bare walls fast, efficiently, and profitably,
– Walk away with your head held high (maintaining your reputation in the community).
– Pay your creditors and settle your affairs, so you can finally enjoy your life again as you venture into the next chapter.
And YES it is far more profitable and faster for you to have a store closing sale than to “hope” you find a qualified buyer who can pay even close to what you paid for your inventory and fixtures!
How do I know this?
Because when I speak to soon-to-be clients (as part of the free initial consultations I offer) the stories I hear them share with me are often unsettling -and sometimes painful…
You get ONE SHOT at a successful store closing sale and I help you make that one shot count.
The video below is just ONE example of what it looks like when I facilitate a retail store closing event for my clients!
You want this in your store, don’t you?
As you watch the video just imagine how you feel…looking back on the day you decided to book that call with me!
You will have a fully facilitated, done-for-you turnkey store closing sale designed to sell your inventory to bare walls and with profit for you.
We prepare your custom sign kits, specifically designed for your store.
We create a number of targeted Facebook ads to create a known community event around your store sale. Ads that are designed to go VIRAL (meaning hundreds and often THOUSANDS of people engaging with the ads).
We distribute strategically written press release(s) around the greater area where your store is located to attract the local media outlets to do community interest stories on you and your store (translation: TONS of free publicity).
We design, prepare and mail PROVEN highly effective direct mail pieces.
Essentially, my team and I facilitate and manage all aspects of your sale; you focus on running your business. You’ll always have access to me throughout the entire sale.
I consult you and your staff to answer every single question with one goal in mind: have you walk away profitably and happy.
It depends on many factors such as the quality of your inventory, your level of contact with existing customers, your margins, relationships with your vendors, your location, and much more. All of this I can establish after you’ve completed a brief questionnaire and requested a free consultation. Historically, my sales always generate between 3 and 8 times your usual sales volume.
Yes, and Retail Sales PRO is the ONLY company offering this for independent retailers. This and many other things are discussed during a private consultation.
It’s easy to think that this would be the case, but not true most of the time. The reason is because it takes valuable time to find a buyer, let alone a qualified one. You could waste months or even years trying to find a buyer only to find that if you do find one they won’t be willing to pay anywhere near cost for your inventory.
With a well facilitated store closing sale you can convert your inventory and assets for CASH quickly, often produce substantial profits for you, and it can all be done over the course of several weeks.
Fixtures are sold as part of the program, there should be very little (if anything) left at the end of a sale if you follow the Retail Sales PRO system, and all the rest is discussed with you on a private consultation.
Bottom line: My company, Retail Sales PRO, has been in business for 23 years and counting because of the proven marketing systems (based on consumer psychology) that I have created and honed over the years.
During this time my sales have generated almost $100,000,0000 (ONE HUNDRED MILLION) in retail sales for my clients over that time. I know exactly what you want, and more importantly I know exactly what needs to be done to help you achieve your goals.
I am, and will always be, in your corner!

We had people lined up at least an hour before we opened, and there was nowhere for people to park.
They were wrapped all the way out to the street, and that line lasted the entire day.
