The months of September through November involve all things fall. This includes: back to school, back to college, which the NRF’s Annual 2022 Back-to-School and Back-to-College Survey predicts the average household will spend $864 and $1,199 per household, respectively. Speaking of back-to-school, 64% of consumers are planning to shop sales.
For resellers, this means apparel inventory, consumer electronics, and other fall essentials will be important to have in stock this time of year. With liquidation inventory, your business can offer discounts on brand-name merchandise that consumers will be looking for, plus be ready for those early bird holiday shoppers.
We cover what inventory to source for fall 2022 and what resellers can expect in the coming months ahead!
Fall 2022 Holiday Calendar
It’s important to know what’s coming! You don’t want to order inventory a month too late and miss potential sales. On the flip side, you don’t want to order too early either and risk sitting on inventory. Here is a look at the fall months and shopping holidays that lie ahead:
Liquidation Inventory for Fall 2022
For that fall chill in the air, shoppers will be looking for sweaters, jackets, and new footwear. It’s also time for more materials like leather and wool, plus more fitting styles for cooler weather like long sleeves, maxi skirts, and slacks. Don’t forget activewear and loungewear as consumers make more time for working out and relaxing prior to the holidays.
Home and Garden
Fall clean-up is on the horizon, and the holiday season follows shortly after. As families prepare to host guests for gatherings, they may be looking to make improvements to their home and outside space. Warmer tones, cozy materials, and luxurious outdoor furniture should all be on your fall home and garden radar.
Electronics are another essential purchase during the fall season (not to mention a core back-to-class shopping category). What are shoppers looking for to prepare for the back half of the year? Well, computers, laptops, tablets, smart devices for the home, speakers, and fitness trackers, for starters!
The fall means it is time to feast! For those in a pinch, or simply looking to save, discount or scratch and dent appliances could be the best choice. Consider what will sell better in your market. When it comes to gas versus electric appliances, gas models will generate higher pricing in certain geographic areas.

Back to school and back to college call for new furniture. The items that are likely on students’ minds when decorating a dorm or apartment could be desks, mattresses, nightstands, and sofas, among other pieces. Furniture is a key category that shoppers turn to in order to prepare their homes for the change in season.
