    Unhappy closing down a shop

    Hi,
    I am closing down a stationery shop in Johannesburg. Is there any type of buyer who is specialized in taking over all the stock I have with specially discounted price? Even I don't know the term to google.
    When closing down, how the owners make a clearance their unsold goods usually?

    No Gumtree in Korea although there are world biggest (even bigger than ebay) online shopping mall in Korea. But I am finding something like a 'Cash&Convert' company concerning shop business. If in korea, just one call is enough to make clearance unsold goods, furniture, fixture and any type of equipment because there are many specialist who help opening and closing businesses.
    Anyway do you think the Gumtree is the only solution?

    My thought was to find a similar stationery shop to take the stock. At the right price, they should be tempted.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Thank you Dave. I have been trying to find a shop in the field. Nevertheless this is very good chance to buy stock with very good price, i cannot find one who has R150K to buy the stock although they know it's half price. ...

    If you can wait, sell it to them on consignment.
