In April 2016 Lauren Rogers and Rachel Amis teamed up to create Exclusive Clearing Limited, a service to retailers who wish to sell their excess inventory via a Sample Sale.
With over 20 years experience of inventory management and retail operations, we believed there was gap in the market for helping brands clear their old & excess stock.
Knowing how much time and resource it takes to prepare and manage a sample sale, our services do it all therefore allowing brands to focus on their more important current and future collections.
We pride ourselves in managing all aspects of a sample sale from inception to completion.
Included within our services are advice on the best avenue for clearing excess stock, venue recommendations and negotiations, all marketing and communications, pricing, staffing, logistics and EPOS.
We are proud to say that since starting the business last year, we have worked with well-known Luxury and Premium brands. We have also built great relationships at a number of locations.
We offer a number of Sample Sale options
Dedicated Sample Sales
A Sample Sale solely for your brand, and your brand only.
Depending on the number of units you have to clear, we suggest the best option for your sale including the right venue, and the right marketing for your brand.
Furthermore, we can suggest the best pricing for the sale based on the units you want to clear and your margin requirements.
multi brand sample sale
You can be part of a Sample Sale with other brands who compliment your products.
These sales are organised regularly and we can suggest the best option for your brand depending on the number of units to clear and the pricing.
As always, we organise the whole event for you, including the staffing, marketing and venue.

Working with EC has been a real pleasure. The girls are friendly and efficient and more importantly deliver great results. Clearing old stock can be a real headache and distraction for brands such as ours and EC do a great deal to ease the pain from organising the marketing as well as the event and making sure that we get a great sell through on past season stock.Sophie Worthington
DirectorHaving worked in Merchandising and Stock Management for nearly 20 years, I’ve spent a lot of time working with retailers to help them clear excess stock. So, in 2015 when I left my previous employer as their Merchandise Director, I decided to set up this business to do just that!
DirectorI have extensive experience working as a Retail Operations Manager within luxury retail for over 15 years. This has given me an understanding of the challenges retailers have when dealing with excess stock and the best way to minimise the impact to the business when clearing these items. I successfully managed sample sales as one of the popular and effective means of reducing terminal stock.
