NORTHBROOK, Ill. - Hilco Global has issued a timely report on the current state of retail inventories and how the ongoing, pervasive environment of uncertainty is likely to impact the disposition of merchandise into the off-price market moving ahead.

Weighing Retail Inventory Monetization Options is Critical as COVID-19 Persists, co-authored by Marc Caplan and Ray Armendariz of Hilco Wholesale Solutions, looks at how alternative strategies and creativity in monetizing these inventory assets can play an important role in providing the liquidity needed by many retailers and manufacturers during this unprecedented period.

The report also explores how controlled environments and customized strategies can be leveraged in the current environment to protect a sellers brand and fetch a higher consumer purchase price.

Many manufacturers and retailers are currently sitting on significant volumes of seasonal or trend-based inventory, says Caplan.
