Marketplace Notes

Big George's Clearance Mart is gone from the old Arbor Farms building on West Stadium-but "we didn't close it. It just moved into the main store," says Big George's vice-president Mark Bishar. "We only had a one-year lease and decided not to renew it," he continues, explaining that the separate storefront, down the street from the main store, ultimately seemed like a disservice to customers. "Who isn't looking for a deal? A lot of people were walking back and forth between the two stores. We do thirty to forty thousand dollars a month in 'scratch and dent'"-that's the behind-the-scenes term for what Big George's was selling at the clearance mart. Bishar says his company's online store (www.big-georges.com) is really the place to go for clearance deals anyway, because with that merchandise moving so fast, it's hard to keep the display inventory current.    (end of article)
