    Default Bluefly Question

    I have a question on bluefly - How do they acquire their goods and offer them at discounted prices? All of their stuff is brand new, right? Why do they have limited quantities also?

    Sorry if this is a dumb quesiton, but I'm just curious to know.

    Everything is brand new. I think it's almost like an "Off 5th" or "Neiman's Last Call." Bluefly gets the things that the stores didn't sell, which is why they can sell them at such a discount. The things usually aren't the newest season, so they're less expensive.

    They get the leftovers (the over buys) from design houses and manufactures. When a manufacture purchases from a factory, they have to order a certain amount. So basically 500 or more of an item, style and size. This really adds up. So at the beginning of market, they will get appoached by and sell to wholesalers. These are companies that will purchase the items at a small mark-up from cost and then sell them for less than wholesale. They will sell to foreign markets, TJMaxx, ect... Places like Bluefly will get the same kind of deal because the designers want to get noticed, number one, and number two because they can get rid of a bunch of inventory and not lose out on any money.
    It really sucks being stuck with inventory at the end of a season.
