RetailExchange.com, a leading online business-to-business global marketplace for the exchange of excess consumer goods, today announced the launch of its health & beauty and food categories. The new categories add millions of dollars in new inventory to the site and, along with all the existing categories, can now be directly accessed from a redesigned home page."The success of RetailExchange.com is primarily related to its exclusive focus on the retail consumer goods market," said Kenneth Frieze, President and CEO of RetailExchange.com. "By introducing new categories only when we have an ample assortment, RetailExchange.com increases the value of its service as a source for opportunistic buys to both current and future members."According to a recent AMR Research press release, the excess consumer goods inventory market will reach $60 billion in the United States and at least $120 billion globally by the end of the year. "Survey results indicate that the largest product categories contributing to this (excess) market are non-perishable foods, consumer electronics and apparel," according to the release."The addition of the food and health & beauty categories complements our existing strength in softline and hardline consumer goods," said Peter Hayes, President of Sales for RetailExchange.com. "Buyers can now logon to RetailExchange.com and find millions of dollars of off-price food and health & beauty products and sellers can now offer their excess to waiting health & beauty and food buyers."RetailExchange.com's new health & beauty category offers a broad selection of personal care products and covers skin care, baby care, hair care, cosmetics, nutritional items and bath needs. Within the food category visitors to RetailExchange.com will find non-perishable items such as beverages, candy, canned goods, pastas/grains and ethnic foods.
