CALERA, Ala. (CBS 42 Living Local) – Entrepreneur John Cassimus is planning a liquidation sale like none other. The fun is happening this weekend; Saturday, November 20th, and Sunday, the 21st, at the Crazy Cazboys distribution center in Calera (41 N. Industrial Drive). Be sure to bring your truck or trailer!
“It’s going to be wild,” said Cassimus.
After successfully growing and ultimately selling Zoe’s Kitchen, Cassimus knew his next venture needed to be in a fast-growing industry that would match his natural sense of urgency. The liquidation business is perfect for Cassimus, who says he thrives on problem-solving, taking risks, and having fun.
In 2019, he opened the first extreme discount retail store called Crazy Cazboy’s, which now has six locations throughout the southeast.
“We sell down to a quarter on a descending price model. So we fully liquidate those stores every week,” Cassimus said. “In a very short period of time, we have built a business that does over 50-million in sales and has over 300 employees, in just two years.”
Each business day, up to10-truckloads of liquidated items arrive at headquarters, a 300-thousand square foot building in Calera.
“And it just never stops. And that’s the real challenge in this business is that the product has to sell,” said Cassimus.
Right now, their distribution center is filled with big-box items that “have to go.” Cassimus, who never backs down from a challenge, says big-box shipping overstock would cost too much money. “So what do we do? We’re going to figure out a unique way to bring this to the public and sell this product at really discounted prices,” said Cassimus.
Expect to find items like TVs, bathtubs, bedding, furniture, bicycles, exercise equipment, appliances, and more.
“We are going to bring thousands of people to a big huge parking lot. All that product is going to go out into the parking lot to sell at 50% to 90% off retail,” Cassimus said. “We are going to be able to offer, before Christmas, a unique way to buy unbelievably high-value items at a really big discount.”
While many businesses have struggled during the Covid era, Cassimus found a way to thrive.
“We are at the right place at the right time. All these online resellers’ businesses have doubled in the last year and a half. There’s a lot of overstock, there’s a lot of box damage, and they have to get rid of that product because they’re doing so much more volume in sales. And that’s where we come in,” Cassimus said.
Cassimus is even optimistic about the current supply chain problems.
“All the product sitting in the ocean right now is not going to make it for the holiday. The consumers are going to feel that squeeze. But there are a lot of great deals coming that kind of circumvent the supply chain issues and normal ways of shopping. If consumers understand that they can shop with us or other people like us, those same supply chain issues that Covid created can be seen on a positive note. And that story is not being told,” said Cassimus.
