    Leftover sale stock

    I've just been browsing the HE by Mango sale having received an email from them saying there is only a week left of it. To be honest I assumed that it had already finished, and I'm surprised to see just how much they have left available from their sale. This led to me wondering, what do clothing companies do with the stock that doesn't sell in the sale? It always strikes me as odd that Reiss, for example, don't tend to reduce their sale stock past a certain percentage, even if it clearly isn't selling. Do they sell the stuff off to wholesalers or something like that?

    It goes to their outlet stores, or places like TK Maxx.

    As above. Or they'll hold onto it in a warehouse and then send it back out into stores when the next sale comes around.

    Some companies destroy overstock so as to not devalue the brand.

    Some companies destroy their stock before it even goes on the market. Superdry do it by slapping logos all over them.

    I believe Hermes also destroy their past season unsold items, this is to create exclusivity for the brand. Here in HK most unsold item are brought in outlet stores.
