Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Shoes&Clothes by LM GmbH??
Shoes&Clothes by LM GmbH is a family company in the form of a limited liability company with its head office in Viersen. As a wholesale company, we import clothing, shoes and accessories from all over Europe, Canada and the USA and export to Africa, the Middle East and South America.
What do we specialise in?
We specialise in trading with surplus stock, remaining stock and returned goods. At present, we collaborate with more than 53 companies, with whom we have concluded contractually regulated trade agreements. They are our loyal partners and reliable sources for high quality brand items with a wide variety.
What items do we offer?
Products from manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, warehouses and outlets, e.g. surplus stock, remaining stock, wrong deliveries, late deliveries, samples, sample collections, sales goods, last season’s items, shoes, women’s clothing, men’s clothing, children’s clothing, sports clothing, evening wear, Total Look, basics, underwear, accessories and much more.
Why should you buy from us?
We are not brokers, instead all the goods on offer are available at our warehouse either completely, or in the form of samples, and are our property until sold. We offer good quality, a wide range of products and quick transaction processing. Due to our large storage capacity, we always have enough items in stock for inspection. We invite all our customers to come and inspect the products and the assortments in our warehouse.
How do we sell our products?
Our products are mainly sold by weight (in kilograms). Items are sorted by brand and season (F/W, S/S). DThe minimum purchase quantity is 1,000 kg.
How new is our stock?
Our merchandise is usually no older than 6 months.
How much do our items cost?
Prices are available upon request in a personal consultation.
What are the restrictions on the purchasing of our brands?
It is not possible to import to every country. There are trade agreements with each brand that protect the respective market of the brands.
What are jobbers?
Jobbers are companies that have relationships with manufacturers, department stores and wholesalers and buy their stocks, just as Shoes&Clothes does. The companies invest a great deal of time and money in order to be able to offer a wide range of fashionable branded clothing. Jobbers sell their products in line with contractual agreements, in our case only in authorised sales countries. The purchased goods are usually stored in our own warehouse, and cleaned, sorted and picked as required.
What are brokers?
Brokers are agents, individuals or companies that distribute products. They do not make any investments of their own. Therefore, the risk is only with the buyer.
What is remaining stock?
Remaining stock means, goods that are no longer on the market because they have been replaced by new products. They are usually new products, but could also easily have been damaged in transport and storage.
What are liquidations?
These are sales of stocks that have become necessary in order to repay the debt of a company or to quickly procure cash for new investments. These can be goods of any quality level.
What are returned goods?
Returned goods were originally sold with a guarantee to the end user and are then exchanged or returned due to dissatisfaction (quality defect) or being displeased (e.g. as a present).
