ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jim Schaye, CEO of Eaton Hudson (www.eatonhudson.com) announced his company is poised to assist smaller chain store retailers who may be contemplating store closings and consolidation sale events in the fourth quarter. “For smaller retail chains trying to evaluate the financial benefits and costs of conducting consolidation, store closing and liquidation sale events during the upcoming holiday shopping season, we suggest they contact us now for a confidential analysis, financial projections and proposal.”
Mr. Schaye noted that he has personally participated and led the liquidations and transactions for such high-profile retailers including Circuit City, JC Penney, Toys “R” Us, Service Merchandise, Saks Fifth Avenue, Kmart, Bradlees, and Caldor’s. “A small handful of larger liquidation companies dominate our space,” said Mr. Schaye. “We work with smaller retail chains and store owners who are greatly underserved when it comes to asset disposition services.
