Great Deals on Returned Products
Have you ever wondered what happens to the items that are returned to these big retailers? Once in awhile I see some returns on the clearance isle at a Texas Walmart but that is just a fraction of what they have returned on a yearly basis. I was told by someone at a Dollar General that a lot of these retailers sale their returns to places like Dollar General and Family Dollar and then they repackage it to sale but I’m not sure if that’s true or not.

I do know that not everything that is returned to these retailers is damaged or broken. There are several reasons why these items are returned and these retailers have policies that allow you to return an item for any reason as long as you meet their guidelines.
According to Global News Wire The new “2019 Consumer Returns in the Retail Industry” report states that the overall value of returned merchandise in the United States during 2019 was $309 billion, and returns from online purchases accounted for $41 billion of that total. This cost does not include the overhead a retailer incurs when receiving, sorting, and repackaging usable goods for resale, nor does it account for the disposal of unsaleable merchandise. In addition, an estimated $27 billion of that sum were fraudulent returns, up 35% over 2018. Those figures are astonishing.
If you’re like me you are probably asking, “why don’t they just take it and resell it to the customers to give the customers a great discount?” There’s several reasons why it’s company policy to not do that. Some of these companies might look a little greedy for not doing this but they can sell it to these other places and they don’t have to take a chance of you returning it again. After they resell these items they can be written off of their inventory and make room for new items. Also I’m sure that safety issues are part of the reason that they get rid of these items since some of these returned items may not be in the best shape.
