New merchandise arrives every day, and the website is updated with new arrivals twice a week. While the company sends customers email alerts two times a week, Jack Newman, owner, urges buyers to visit its two warehouses, which are within easy reach of New York City. "It is most beneficial for buyers to come in and pick merchandise themselves," he reasons, "because merchandise turns very quickly."
Jeans represent the largest share of the product mix. "They account for between 40 and 50 percent of all," Newman says, "and we get about 10 new styles a week. There's always a market for jeans. We buy by the case and break them into six packs, so that retailers can, for example, buy 36 pair and get six different styles, from skinny legs to boot styles and others." Typically, jeans wholesale for $7.50 to $15 a pair, and retail prices generally range from $19.95 to $39.95, "Giving retailers a nice profit range," he notes.
Another specialty is club wear tops for young women. The wholesale prices for these items typically span from $6.50 to $8.75. Hudson also carries coats and suits and some men's apparel.
The minimum order is $250, and can include an assortment. Newman says that because he breaks down cases, "A retailer can get small, medium and large on one style, and get the most appealing variety in small quantities." On orders of $500, shipping is free.
The products are all first quality. Newman buys primarily through deals with manufacturers and can sell below the manufacturers' wholesale cost.
