Lazar has set up InShortSupply, working with retailers and distributors in the UK, Europe and Asia to facilitate trade.
According to Lazar, a former Winning Moves executive, this new venture had been under consideration for some time. He told Toy World: ” I started to think about this idea again as the coronavirus pandemic caused more and more challenges in retail. A lot of retail stores which were not set up to trade online were left with dead stock and further buying commitments which meant they needed liquidity.”
As a result, Lazar has fast-forwarded his idea. His many positive relationships with individuals in the international toy industry has already facilitated several sizeable deals in a short space of time.
Deals have been concluded in the UK with companies from toy specialists to large FMCG retailers. Lazar is able to trade globally , however his speciality is in complex territories such as Russia and Greece.
The business is twofold:
1. Clearance stock: Lazar can help those finding it hard to shift end of range stock due to geographic popularity or overstock.
2. Facilitating new markets: helping customers enter new territories.
If any toy company would like to clear their stock or look at entering a particular new market/territory, Lazar can be contacted on 0759 007 7369 or via email on email@example.com. Or visit his website.
