‘Wigs are just a waste of time’: Wholesale succulences retailer
Wholesalers like Kohl’s, Target and Walgreens all have products with wholesale discounts and a limited inventory, which means they can offer discounts to people who may not want to spend big on a product.
However, this means that some people may be forced to make a decision between purchasing a wholesale product and a more expensive option.
In order to encourage people to buy more of the more expensive product, the wholesale discount offers may also be made available to retailers in-store.
But for some, that decision may be a little too big a leap.
“I don’t think it’s fair to say wholesale is a waste because they’re making money off it,” says Jennifer DeCoteau, a spokesperson for the nonprofit organization FairPrice, which advocates for higher prices on goods and services.
Kohl’s, for example, has made its wholesale product available for $4.49 for a one-year membership.
Target has offered discounts for two years to retailers, including a $1 off discount on a full-price membership for up to three members.
Target’s wholesale discounts are available in store and online.
Walgreens has offered wholesale discounts on products up to $50.
Bayer, which makes Kiehl’s beauty products, has a $10 discount on all items in its beauty line for up-to-three members.
For Kohl, Target, and Walgreen, a $5 off discount will be available for up two years.
However, the discounts aren’t limited to the retail store.
Target, for instance, will be offering a $3.50 off discount for two people.
Wholesale Club memberships also offer a discount, but it’s not as large as the $5, Target offers.
As for Walgreen, it offers a $4 off discount in store for up one year, and it also offers a free gift for the first year.
The retailer offers a similar program in-person for those who want to buy the same product, though some customers may feel the discount is a bit too big.
Even if a product is available for a lower price online, it may be too much to pay at the checkout, says Kristi Ziegler, senior product manager at The Hair & Beauty Shop.
I can’t see why I would want to get rid of the store discount at the store,” she says.
While these discounts can be good for shoppers who might be hesitant to spend on a specific product, they may not be so good for customers who are more likely to spend money on a more comprehensive package of products.
DeCoteaux says it is also important for people who buy wholesale products to know how to shop at a local store. “
So if we’re not selling to those people, we’re going to have to take their money and put it into a more inclusive package.”
DeCoteaux says it is also important for people who buy wholesale products to know how to shop at a local store.
A lot of the time, the people who are buying from wholesale sellers may have never even seen a beauty product before, she says, or they may have heard about the discount but not the actual price.
When it comes to the new Kohl products, the company is looking to provide a more focused shopping experience for customers, DeCoseau says.
The company also wants to work with local retailers and local brands to ensure the wholesale discounts go to the right people.
For example, Target will be partnering with local beauty brands to offer discounted merchandise at select stores.
So, how do you decide if you want to shop wholesale?
DeCoeau says it can be a tough decision.
She says if you’re not in the market for wholesale, it’s a great time to shop online.
That said, there are a few things to consider.
It could be cheaper to buy wholesale than the retail product, she explains.
People who are not in a relationship with a local retailer may be more likely than others to shop locally.
And it’s important to remember that if you shop online, you’ll have a better chance of finding an in-stock product.
You can also get more value for your money, if you purchase a wholesale discount, says Zieglers.
DeCaroteaux also says it’s best to consider if you have any other questions.
“We want to make sure that all the information is clear for everyone so that we are providing our customers with information that’s right for them,” she explains, adding that it’s also important to check out the store’s website to see if there are any discounts available.
