If I told you that you could buy any of the bedding items shown above for $20 of less, would you jump at the chance? Of course you would as that is 75%-90% off of Kohl’s retail prices. After reading this blog post, you are going to want to go find a Kohls liquidation store near you to get deals like this on bedding or more!
Long time readers will know that I started my liquidation business by buying Target liquidation pallets. Since then, I’ve expanded and brought pallets and truckloads from several of other big box stores including Bed Bath & Beyond liquidation, Macy’s liquidation, and Nordstrom Rack liquidation. When I got the chance to buy a Kohl’s liquidation truckload of “domestics”, I went for it. Domestics in liquidation lingo means household items such as bedding, towels, curtains, small furniture, small appliances and home decor.
So, are you wondering how can you find a Kohl’s liquidation store near you? Well, keep reading as there are thousands across the United States, and I’ll tell you exactly where there are some near you.
How To Tell What Are Kohls Liquidation Items
Before you go to a Kohl’s liquidation store near you, you will want to know how to spot Kohls liquidation items. There are a few ways to tell if the items being sold are Kohl’s return items: either by their stickers, tags, and/or by their brand names.
Kohl’s Transfer Stickers
If you look closely at the sticker above, you’ll see that the Kohl’s logo is blackened out with a marker. The sticker says “Send to DC”. DC is an abbreviation for “direct contract”, but I like to think of it as “distribution center” as liquidation and salvage items from big name stores usually end up at a DC to be sold by brokers to resellers.
The sticker also says “Damaged; Large Imperfection” but I would take that with a grain of salt. A lot of people that return items like to say something is wrong with the item so they don’t have to pay return shipping. At our store, we left people open the items to inspect them if they are worried. Other stores may not allow self-opening, but you can ask an employee to open the package to look for any damages. And if it’s a case of a small tear, it may still be worth fixing yourself if you got a real deal on it.
Kohl’s Yellow Bin Tags
These tags which appear to be printed at the register say “yellow bin” which I can image is a big yellow bin in the back of the store to throw items into that need to go to the DC. They do say “send to DC” after all. The reasons vary from “Damaged” to “Web-Exclusive” which means it was bought online at Kohls.com and returned to a store. The store does not sell that item so it goes to liquidation (yay for us).
Kohl’s Private Brands
Most likely you will know if the liquidation items are from Kohl’s is if the items are one of Kohl’s private brand portfolio (also known as “signature brands”, “exclusive brands” or “owned brands”). Kohl’s private brands (and their category of items) include:
- Croft & Barrow
- Jumping Beans
- LC Lauren Conrad
- Little Co. by Lauren Conrad
- Simply Vera Vera Wang
- SONOMA Goods for Life
- Tek Gear
Featured Brand Names At Kohl’s
Kohl’s partners with hundreds of recognized name brands, and some partners will even collaborate with Kohl’s to make exclusive items only sold at Kohl’s which makes the items more appealing. Here are some of the featured brand names sold at Kohl’s:
- Calvin Klein
- Cole Haan
- Eddie Bauer
- Lands’ End
- Nine West
- Tommy Hilfiger
