    New Taipei toy retailer offers free clearance giveaway as COVID bites (2021/10/13)

    A retailer of baby products and toys in New Taipei is carrying out a massive clearance giveaway. Families who claim low-income benefits can come to the warehouse and pick out products for free. The business is suffering from falling demand due to the nation's low birth rates, as well as the devastating effects of the pandemic. But for local families and kids, Christmas has come early.

    The warehouse is brimming with boxes full of baby products. These strollers sell for anything from NT$3,000 to NT$30,000. There are toys of all descriptions, some costing just a few hundred dollars, others worth thousands of dollars. But all these products are being given away for free to families with proof of being a low-income household.

    Today my haul is kids' toys, and a chair for the dining room. I think the boss is crazy. It's all to help us more disadvantaged people.

    This mom from Sanchong District brought her child to the warehouse in Taishan District look at the toys. Another recipient drove here from out of New Taipei to pick things up. Some of these strollers are only a few hundred dollars. Customers are flabbergasted at the bargains, wondering if the CEO is enlightened or deranged. Folks told us it's the best thing to happen all pandemic.

    Mr. Liu
    Baby products retailer
    The first reason is the falling birth rate. The second is the pandemic. Stores have been closing one by one, more and more ever since Lunar New Year, about a dozen already. It's untenable. I can't find stores to sell the goods. It's even gotten hard to sell them online.

    This retailer says he saw days go by with zero turnover, thanks to the perfect storm of falling birthrates and then COVID-19. The upsurge in online retail has done little for him and his monthly warehouse outlay is a full NT$60,000. Before he cancels the lease, he wants to do something to recoup losses and help the community. Any products not taken by families will be donated en masse to orphanages. So if you have a friend in New Taipei who needs help with the kids - now's the time to ring them.

    老闆佛心來的! 嬰兒用品清倉送低收入戶

    新北市泰山一名嬰兒用品業者,清倉大贈送,上萬元嬰兒推車,還有玩具,通通送給低收入戶,不是低收入戶來選購,也低於一折售出,所得捐贈給孤兒院。老闆感慨的說,少子化加上疫情衝擊,與其放著賣不出去,還要繳倉儲費,乾脆清倉退租、做愛心。

    倉庫裡面堆滿一箱又一箱的嬰兒用品,嬰兒推車一台從三千元到三萬元都有,還有各種嬰兒玩具用品,市價也要幾百元到數千元,但是眼前看到的,老闆通通大贈送,只要持低收入戶相關證明,現場看到的隨你挑。

    [[民眾]]
    “我今天的收穫就是小朋友的玩具,然後就是餐椅這樣子,我覺得他(老闆)瘋了,就是都在幫助我們這些,比較弱勢的人”

    三重來的一名媽媽,帶著小孩來看玩具,還有人專程從外縣市開車來搬貨,就算不是低收入戶,嬰兒車也只賣個幾百元,有人直呼老闆是不是瘋了,還有人說老闆佛心來的,是疫情爆發以來最大的大確幸。

    [[嬰兒用品業者 柳先生]]
    “第一個少子化的因素,第二個疫情的因素,就是變成店家一間一間收,從過年收到現在,已經大概十幾間了,都已經撐不了,找不到店家賣,連網路也真的很難賣”

    少子化加上疫情攪局,業者說門市曾經好幾天日營業額掛零,就連網路銷售也是慘澹經營,每個月倉儲費用高達六萬,只能趁退租前切割止血,剩下的貨品將通通請卡車載去捐贈給孤兒院。
