Hilco Monetizes Large Chunk of Inventory Through On-Going Stores


Excess Inventory – Clearance Centers


Based on previous work conducted on behalf of JCPenney, the company built a strong rapport and level of trust with Hilco. When faced with the need to formulate a solution for excess inventory without closing stores, JCPenney asked Hilco to help. Working with JCP, Hilco implemented and tested a program featuring three different clearance concepts within their stores. Based on the test, Hilco and JCPenney selected the preferred concept, refined the program, and rolled it out to a broader network of stores.
