Regent’s Value Lines

Regent Products Corp., typically known for direct imports, domestic general merchandise and dollar store items, has seen increasing interest in its name brand closeouts over the past year. Carrying products that range from automotive to baby and everything in between, sales manager, Ken Soens, says pets and plastics have been among some of the best moving products. “We maintain about 20 different categories with more than 3,000 items,” says Soens. “Seasonal merchandise also continues to be a big part of our business.”

A visible leader in the wholesale and closeouts industry, Regent Corp. utilizes multiple touch points to make its sales representatives and merchandise accessible to customers. These include a revamped ecommerce site, multiple merchandise showrooms, as well as everyday and seasonal catalogs. The company also maintains a tradeshow schedule of 30 to 50 shows a year. Attending shows year round keeps Regent in the limelight and helps to maintain a good reputation for the company’s showcased merchandise.

Some popular items from Regent are back to school items, including book covers, construction paper, crayons and more, sold for $1.50 or less wholesale. Among seasonal items, retailers will find a large offering of Christmas supplies, including baking cups, baskets, garlands, and bows, also $1.50 or less wholesale. “All in all, we try to maintain good prices to help our retailers,” notes Soens, “many of which are reselling these goods at price points of $1.99, $3, $5 and $7, or many times the price of two for three.” Besides low prices and increasing closeout offers, Regent has also reviewed its merchandise, removing products from the catalog that are not moving as well, or increasing the size of some items so retailers get more for their money. Retailers can get started with a minimum order of $250. “Every order is important, whether it’s for a new or longtime customer. We always offer discounts from the get go, and believe we offer extreme product value in terms of pricing and packaging,” says Soens.
