Overstock appliances are the extra supply of appliances in excess of demand, commonly sold by Overstock.com. Overstock.com is an online retailer that offers customers high-quality products from the excess inventory of a variety of well-known manufacturers. Overstock appliances are usually cheaper than appliances bought directly from manufacturers or vendors.
In 1999, Dr. Patrick M. Byrne started Overstock.com with the goal of centralizing the excess inventory of respectable manufacturers through the Internet. The company acts as an alternative inventory distribution channel for suppliers looking to sell excess inventory. Overstock.com makes it easier for bargain-seeking customers to purchase reputable products for lower prices by offering discount products online instead of outlet stores.
