Brands or unbranded sportswear?
Brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, Converse, and Reebok are the more dominant sportswear brands that have a built reputation of consistent quality and innovation. For this reason, when you are re-selling these brands you automatically benefit from the popularity of the customer audience. A Nike or Adidas store specialises in products that have different price ranges from low to high.
On the other hand, unbranded sportswear has no developed proven record especially if you source-specific clothing like gym wear or jackets in which garment technology plays a role. Unless you plan to sell more basic cheap sportswear such as t-shirts, shorts, track tops, accessories, pants, ladies sweatshirts, and so on, you can become a low-price unbranded sport re-seller.
The downside of unbranded goods is you will need to have the customer audience or make more effort to re-sell them.
Our suggestion would be to deal with UK wholesalers that own large stocks of sportswear with branded (i.e Nike, Adidas) clothing and footwear. Ideally, you can buy and mix some unbranded sportswear into your collection if you consider re-selling to a low-budget customer audience. But the advantage of branded stock is that it holds some market value and you will not get stuck with goods!
Price - service - time - delivery
Your cost when buying will depend on how current the stock is. If you buy from UK liquidation wholesalers like Top Down Trading your cost price is going to be fairly lower than buying from a sports trade distributor. Whether you are from Europe or Africa we serve buyers worldwide with tagged and bagged deliveries.
Try not to aim to buy the latest collections unless you have a large size budget. The good thing is most sportswear is never out of fashion and even the oldest Adidas or Nike vintage clothing like pants, bags, headwear, or track tops are very valuable.
Supplying successfully needs consistency. Giving a fast service is as important as the price and, you would need to find wholesalers that own large stocks for the perfect order and consistent supply of offers.
