Company Line: This company specializes in closeouts of name brand personal hair care products, including blow driers and curling irons. The majority are first quality, but the company also has exclusive agreements to obtain customer returns from major retailers, which it completely refurbishes before selling to retailers. Its typical stock includes all of the best known brands. It also stocks a wide range of hair accessories, along with name brand toy and game closeouts.
Minimum Order/Pricing: The minimum order is $1,000, and can include an assortment of the company's products. Hair accessories, such as pony tail holders and barrettes, wholesale for as little as 20 cents each and have a suggested retail of $2 to $6. Blow driers typically wholesale for $8 or $9 and have suggested retail prices of $20 to $30. All of the company's products are sold for at least 50 percent less than original wholesale price.
Literature: The website is an ever changing catalog of products, and RC70 emails customers a list of products and prices. Retailers can place orders online.
Special Features: RC70 has an exclusive arrangement on some merchandise from manufacturers that cannot be obtained elsewhere. On occasion, some of the company's products come with an in-store merchandiser. Orders are filled within two to three days.
Management Says: "We never put a retailer in the position of getting merchandise that won't sell. We've built our reputation on being up front with retailers. Because they're served well, they come back to us. All of our new products are guaranteed to work." -Jeff Roth, owner.
