About Me

 

RetroSportCloseout.Com is the web name for Red Bin Closeouts, LLC, a California Limited Liability Corporation. 

Welcome to my site! 

What are closeouts? 

Good question.  When a designer or manufacturer goes out of business, or finishes a line, or has too much inventory in stock, or for some other reason just wants to get rid of inventory, they try to find a close out dealer to take it.  A lot of close outs go overseas.  There are also discount stores, discount websites, and many other avenues to sell this stuff.  Mine is a discount website.  My business is finding great inventory from high-end designers and manufacturers and selling it to you for as cheap as I can.  I like to call it affordable luxury.

A small percentage of the inventory is irregular (i.e., stitches out of place, sizes are labeled incorrectly, color variations, etc…) or damaged, but I try to weed that stuff out before I buy it.  If it made it to the site, I’ve looked at it and would wear it myself.  The big Hollywood ending is you get really nice stuff at a really great price.

A couple of important notes:

1)  Because I buy closeouts, I don't manufacture (yet)... when I run out of something, it's gone for good.
 
2)  Because I buy closeouts, I may not have every piece in every size.  Available sizes are shown for each product!!
 
3)  Make sure to check the size chart for each designer to ensure your satisfaction.  The button is at the bottom of every page.
 
Good Causes
 
If you want to donate 10% of your purchase to one of the great causes listed below, please enter the appropriate referral code during checkout into the comments area.  All of these causes involve children I know, but I used to be a teacher soooooooo.... 
 
A Better Chance (Ref Code: ABC) .... I was friends with many kids from the ABC house in my town growing up.  I know the good work they do. [www.abetterchance.org]
 
My Friend's Place (Ref Code: MFP) .... MFP works with homeless youth in Hollywood, California, where I live now.  I volunteer there (mostly) once a week.  They do VERY good and VERY tough work and do it VERY well.  I am really impressed by everyone there.  [www.myfriendsplace.org]
 
Charity: Water (Ref Code: CW) ... Raising money for clean water around the world, it is a very important cause for millions and millions of people around the world right now, and maybe more in the future as the climate continues to change. [www.charitywater.org]
 
One Fund, Boston (Ref Code:  OFB) ... The victims of the Boston Marathon bombings still need a lot of assistance.  I was born in Boston so I have a special place in my heart for my born town, and all of their causes.  [www.onefundboston.org]
 
Jalen Rose Leadership Academy (Ref Code:  JRLA) ... I just like Jalen Rose.  I respect his story.  And when he talks, he makes sense.  So one day I googled him and saw this school with his name on it.  According to the website, it's "a leadership-focussed education" through "project-based experiences" that is designed to drive them through a college education.  Plus I'm rooting for Detroit, not against the Celtics or anything crazy like that but as a city.  Anyhoo, [www.jrladetroit.com]
 
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (Ref Code: SJCR) ... St. Jude's is world famous for their work, another great cause.  [www.stjude.org]
 
Right now, my sales are not a lot.  I had a different URL and google thought I was doing something wrong so they took me off of their search results, and right when I was gonna start turning a profit!  So I changed everything I thought might be wrong (becuase google doesn't actually tell you what you did), and changed my URL, and now I'm here.  That being said, I will send the amount given to each charity at the end of each quarter.  Hopefully, it won't be an embarrasing amount.  Since things are so slow right now (4/21/15), i'm gonna wait until October of this year for the first donation.  Ha!  This last part sounds like a blog.  And speaking of that....
