Retail Revolt, a local liquidator based in Spruce Grove, is disrupting the retail market by offering consumers a unique opportunity to purchase returned items from big box online and brick-and-mortar stores at significantly discounted prices. They are a one-stop shop for retail returns, overstock, and wholesale products, with their inventory spanning many categories from bedding, home furnishings, light fixtures to apparel, and more.
In a bid to help consumers cope with the rising cost of living, especially during the holiday season, Retail Revolt is currently offering a massive 55% off merchandise until the end of the year. This offer presents an incredible opportunity for shoppers to buy gifts for their loved ones without breaking the bank.
The company has recently moved into a larger location, signaling a major step forward in its expansion strategy. The owner, Michael Curle, has ambitious plans for 2024.
He shared, "We are operating out of a larger space and have expansion plans for 2024 that will focus on bringing liquidation options to smaller centres away from the cities. Additionally, we have expanded our inventory to include more major Canadian retailers and also smaller liquidation items like food, furnishings, and mattresses.”

One of the remarkable aspects of Retail Revolt's business model is their commitment to sustainability. By selling returned and surplus merchandise, they are helping keep useable goods out of landfills. This is not just an eco-friendly practice, but it also allows consumers to save a significant amount of money.
Inflation across Canada has led to rising costs in other areas like groceries, fuel, and energy bills in Alberta. Consumers remain resilient, but the increasing strain on their finances makes major holidays like Christmas, and things like buying gifts for birthdays, an increasing demand. There are also times when something is simply needed – new dishes, a good winter coat, items for a new baby, a security system, reading glasses – with the cost of goods at an all time high, why pay full price for these items? You can get them at a discount at Retail Revolt.
Resellers and liquidators also contribute to sustainability. Instead of new products being produced, reselling allows for the circulation and use of already manufactured goods, reducing waste and the need for new production, which in turn reduces the carbon footprint associated with manufacturing.
Canada has a significant waste problem, with large amounts of goods ending up in landfills. According to Oceana Canada, about 2.8 million tonnes of plastic waste ends up in Canadian landfills every year, which is equivalent to the weight of 24 CN Towers. Textile waste is another significant contributor to landfill waste in Canada. The University of Waterloo reported that Canadians discard close to 500 million kilograms of fabric items annually. Moreover, new research suggests that Canadians trash about a billion pounds—nearly 500 million kilograms—of clothes and other fabric items. Furniture waste is another considerable issue. Over 10 million tons of furniture waste ends up in landfills annually in Canada and the United States.
As the cost of living continues to rise, and as consumers push to do better on aspects of sustainability, it's clear that alternative shopping methods such as using resellers and liquidators offer significant benefits to consumers. Retail Revolt is proving to be a game-changer in the retail industry. Their innovative approach to liquidation, commitment to sustainability, and continuous efforts to provide affordable shopping options make them a company to watch out for in the coming years.
