There’s a very good chance that even if you’ve been to an Offprice show before, you still haven’t seen everything there is to see. This is especially true, says Offprice CEO Stephen Krogulski, because the show continues to sign new exhibitors and expand to meet the needs of its buyers.
Offprice bills itself as one of the largest order-signing, discount apparel shows in the United States. Vendors at Offprice shows offer everything from deeply discounted fashion jeans to jewelry to the latest footwear and accessories, with discounts ranging between 20 and 70 percent.
“Our show continues to grow from the retail and the exhibitor side,” Krogulski says, noting that there will be more than 1,000 vendors displaying wares at the upcoming February show in Las Vegas. “We have a lot of newness on the floor. A retailer can come to an Offprice show and find products that will give them an edge and then have it delivered immediately to their stores.”
For the February show, Krogulski notes that the show is opening up new apparel categories and expanding on popular areas, including the cash-and-carry jewelry area, which he describes as a “very exciting” place.
Because the focus at Offprice is buying merchandise right off the show floor, Krogulski advises getting to the show as early as possible and making a plan to visit as many booths as possible. The deals at the events are first-come, first-served, so the earlier you arrive, the more likely you are to find the newest and most exciting products.
Although vendors frequently are still adding new products up until the minute the show doors open, Offprice maintains a very active social media platform, with accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. According to Krogulski, social media is a great way to see who is planning to exhibit at a show in advance, make connections, and stay current with news related to the shows. A complete list of vendors can also be found on the website.
Buyer attendance at the Offprice show is free for qualified retailers. To register, retailers need to provide a state retail tax sales number. During the show, Offprice offers shuttle service to other shows and local venues.
The next show is scheduled for February 15-18 at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas. Contact the company or visit the website for further details.
