Store Clean Outs Skyrocket With New Jersey Coronavirus Retail Closings
COVID-19, High Rates Of Store Closings In The Retail Sector & The Need For Store Cleanouts
The COVID-19 pandemic massively disrupted businesses – and continues to do so. Some closed in the early days because they couldn’t make ends meet when their doors were closed under a forced quarantine, like restaurants and service shops. Some struggled to keep enough workers on staff, either because they couldn’t afford to pay people or because people weren’t comfortable having close contact with customers and other workers.
Some people found themselves calling a New Jersey junk removal service to carry away the equipment, furniture, and other gear that had built their businesses. Other people hired a service to clean out the place, hoping it would only be for temporary storage. While many had hoped the worst would be behind us, the latest news shows us that trouble continues.
Massive Closings Throughout New Jersey
Recent news reports show that a lot of businesses closed throughout New Jersey throughout the pandemic, and more closings are to come. Just a sampling of the stores that have closed some or all of their locations in New Jersey in the past year include:
- Bed, Bath & Beyond
- Fairway Market
- JC Penney
- Modell’s Sporting Goods
- Pier 1 Imports
- Sur La Table
All of these are major chains. If the news were following what is happening with smaller businesses and independent retailers, the situation would likely appear much more grim. If larger chain stores with great brand recognition and huge budgets can’t pull through the pandemic, what do we think is happening with those smaller businesses? Many people are closing their doors for good and are being left to pick up the pieces. In logistical terms, that means calling in a New Jersey junk hauling service to take away whatever they couldn’t sell in their last hurrah.
The Logistics Involved In Closing a Business
When businesses close, there are a lot of logistics that must be dealt with. Besides the financial and legal dissolution of the business, there is also the physical dissolution that must be completed. That involves more than just cancelling the lease and cutting off the lights. The larger the business, the more stuff there is inside that must find a new home.
Most businesses start the process of closing down by selling off whatever inventory they can. The sale can include the items they would usually sell, as well as infrastructure items like the fixtures or the furniture. The discounts usually get progressively bigger as the sale goes on, in an attempt to clear out everything.
At the end, the business owner is often still left with a lot of stuff to clear out. Some choose to donate these items, and some choose to take them to other locations to sell. They can try to transport items themselves, but that can quickly prove difficult if there is a lot of stuff or if the items are very large. Some people simply don’t want to deal with removing what remains of the business that they have worked so hard to build and then watched close. The process can be too heartbreaking.
