When big department stores overstock or don’t want to move inventory that’s when Department Store Liquidators steps in and passes the savings on to its customers.

Department Store Liquidators is new to Houston and owners and managers urge the community to come by and see what they sell and more importantly learn a little about what they offer.

“When one of your big retail stores overstocks something and just doesn’t have room on their shelves or when a store closes and the company doesn’t want to move the merchandise, that’s where we get our product,” said Eddie Moore, of Department Store Liquidators. “Almost everything in this store is brand new, still in the box or never been worn.”

Moore said Department Store Liquidators is not a consignment shop and they don’t carry flea market items. He said owner Darren Moore has a vast list of contacts and shops the internet buying items at rock-bottom prices and bringing them to Houston.

“We buy pallets of stuff and you never know exactly what you will find when your walk in the door,” said Moore. “We pride ourselves in a good selection of things for the home, office and even your yard and shop.”

Tools, small appliances, toys, paper products, patio furniture, towels, coffee pots, blenders, bedding, sheets, electric irons, televisions and radios are just a few of the items on sale. They also have racks and racks of new clothes and jewelry.

“We don’t call our items cheap, because many are brand new, name brand items that you see in the big stores every day,” said Moore. “Some of the merchandise may be a couple of years old and some of it has been returned, but we do offer a replacement guarantee on most items we sell.”

Moore said Department Store Liquidators in Houston is managed by Tanya Lee and Renee Moore.

The business works hard to make sure every item is clean and the tables and racks and neat.

“We’ve got several warehouses and we ask people to tell us what they are looking for,” said Moore. “Sometimes we have a pallet somewhere else and if we know people are looking to buy a certain item we are glad to look for it when we go surplus shopping.”

Moore said Department Store Liquidators does take checks and credit cards. He said they don’t do lay-away.

“People really don’t know what Department Store Liquidators means,” said Moore. “That’s why we ask people to come by and shop with us. We offer more than what people expect.”
