Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Tuesday April 8th, 2014

Target has a lot on sale right now and it can be hard to process. So I am going to take you through different attack vectors in the next few days unless something bigger comes up. Something bigger did arise, but when Kmart drops their prices, it is usually AFTER an item has sold out at the higher price. Very disappointing. They supposedly have an extra discount on their clearance right now, but good luck finding something of value in Kmart. They are good for Stack-Ons and that’s it!

Anyway, back to Target. I’m not a big fan of brick-boxes. They are like Creator sets but with even less variety. At the same time, my store’s motto is “Everything Sells Eventually,” and brick boxes are a good way to boost your numbers.

I remember on Black Friday when a lot of people bought the brick boxes on sale at Walmart. I was putting my money towards better items, but there is a market for basic bricks. There are a lot of buyers who believe buying basic bricks from BrickLink sellers is the best way to get what they need. It really isn’t, but orders are orders. One type of order you will receive is from Bricks4Kidz franchisees. If you get an order for all bricks or for all basic Technic pieces, check the email address at the bottom. It just may be from a Bricks4Kidz coordinator. They need the basic parts and they usually buy out your lots.

10662 LEGO Creative Bucket is $23.99 from $29.99 (20%) off.

The part out is $54.92 and you don’t have to worry about instructions that won’t sell or the competitiveness of minifig sales because this is all bricks.
That’s a ratio of 2.41x with RedCard discount.
Buy the maximum of 8 buckets and you’ll be adding 5,000 items to your store!
