The surplus business is interesting in that there is a constantly rotating stock. It is tricky to manage and hard to grow when our customers get interested in a product, we sell out, and then can't find anymore. We also are struggling to correctly provide size and condition information because every item is different.

The past few weeks we have been busy working on our next business move: offering a line of current retail products. We looked for something that would cross over with our current military audience but move towards a retail niche that interests us more. We thought of outdoor/hiking gear and then started looking for a small manufacturer. Talks with customers and consultants in the military led us to Maxpedition Hard-Use Gear. They authorized us as a dealer earlier this week. Soon we will place our first order. Do you want us to carry a Maxpedition product you love? Comment or send an email.
