Focused On Wholesale Closeouts; Dedicated To You
Founder, Sam Craven
Craven Closeouts—originally founded as L. Craven & Sons in 1950 by Sam Craven and his brother Ben—has become one of the nation's preeminent wholesale closeouts companies. Still family owned and operated, we take great pride in our reputable and distinguished 60-year history in the secondary marketplace.
When Sam's children entered the business nearly 20 years ago, they vowed to uphold the high ethical standards instilled by their father. Today, these values of hard work, honesty, integrity, and compassion continue to guide us. Staying true to our roots and hands-on involvement have helped earn us a top D&B rating for our personal service and commitment to complete satisfaction. Nothing is more important to us than earning and keeping the trust of our customers and partners.
Evolving to offer more value for our customers.
The last decade has brought exciting growth and change for Craven Closeouts. Once solely focused on candy and snack closeouts, we have now expanded to offer nearly every product category. Whether buying closeout merchandise wholesale from the top global brands or selling wholesale closeout deals to major retailers across the county, we have an intimate understanding of selecting items and categories that excite the end user in a highly competitive retail landscape.
Large buying power and outstanding industry reach.
Through the years, we have built strong relationships with many top globally recognized brand names. Our suppliers know that we value their business and understand their desire and need for discretion when handling excess inventories.
This reputation for dealing with large manufacturers enables us to secure the best, new liquidation merchandise, overruns, discontinued items, and surplus lots. We continue to offer big discounts for buyers; significant advantages to sellers; and a fast-moving inventory of the latest closeout products.
Expansive storage facilities and state-of-the-art showroom.
