Tennis racquets manufacturers periodically offer tennis racquets clearance sales, either directly or through various retailers. Likewise, retailers too offer clearance tennis racquets on sales. Such sales may be used tennis racquets sale, final sales, or simply sales.
All the three types of sales imply that you can get some discounts, but the first two categories imply that the buyers can get those tennis racquets at deeper discounts than they would in normal sales. Reasons for offering clearance tennis racquets differ from those of other sales.
Manufacturers offer deeper discounts on clearance tennis racquets for many reasons. For example, the product could be a slow-moving product, warranting such a move considering mounting stocking costs.
It may even be to make tennis players aware of the effectiveness of a new technology or design. In such cases, the products may be offered as clearance tennis racquets for a brief period.
The manufacturer may at times choose to move storage and/or manufacturing facilities to another location, for economic reasons.
In such cases, if there are insufficient orders on hand for the products in a warehouse that needs to be vacated by a specific date, offering the tennis racquets as clearance tennis racquets may be warranted.
At times, a large export order may be canceled due to some unforeseen event such as war, or calamity, and the inventory may have to be sold with deep discounts to cut down on stocking costs.
Note that the manufacturers are not offering a defective product or outdated technologies when they offer clearance tennis racquets. Retailers offer clearance tennis racquets when they are relocating, changing the composition of their inventory, or closing the shop.
They also offer clearance tennis racquets when the products are slow moving.
