Kluckhohn and Strodtbeck’s Culture Value Orientations

Florence Kluckhohn and Fred Strodtbeck were cultural anthropologists who believed that there were a limited number of problems that are common to all societies as well as a limited number of solutions to those problems and that the problems and corresponding solutions could be represented by “value orientations” which could be used to describe the dominant value system of a society and draw distinctions between societies.  They identified five value orientations based on the relationship of individuals and groups with nature, relationships among individuals within the society, orientation regarding preferred form of human activities, relationship with time (i.e., “time orientation”, a common theme among other researchers in this area) and evaluation of human nature.  These value orientations, which are generally represented on a three-point continuum, are described in the attached report, which is the latest in our series of materials on the major models of cultural dimensions.

    Every business has a good time and a bad time. During bad times, the business might not be able to retain its existence and has to close; it will then convert whatever the assets it has into cash to pay off debts. This process of converting assets into cash is called “Liquidation.” In case of clothing stores, when the business has less sales and profits start declining over time, the business might not hold up, especially when the economic climate is not in favor of creditors. The clothing industry does face such problems during the recession, when the customers spend very less. Then clothing liquidation takes place. Clothing liquidation might also be the sales of surplus merchandise or closeout.
    Liquidation requires the business to convert the existing stock of apparel to cash mainly through sales. The sales might be done directly to the public or to companies that handle the liquidation. These companies buy clothes and accessories and sell them to retailers. There are many clothing liquidation companies around selling both in online as well as in physical stores. They buy from retailers, departmental stores, wholesalers and manufacturers. Many companies even provide the actual retail price that the merchandise would have been sold at. All the clothes that are sold here are brand new and are of the existing fashion or of previous seasons. The clothes will vary in pricing based on factors like style, material, designs, and the actual retail price. Most of the liquidation companies buy brand apparel, to ensure good pricing and sales in terms of numbers.
    Liquidating company provides bargains and good discounts, when bought in wholesale. They sell clothes at prices lower than the manufacturer’s wholesale price. The liquidation companies create a whole new world in the field of wholesale marketing. They have enormous buying power. This creates the possibility of reducing prices to the consumers and in turn increases the consumer’s buying capacity. Thus, clothing liquidation industry plays a very critical role in the apparel industry. free adult chat

The retailers and the common man can take advantage of the clothing liquidation sales.
