Review - Charity Fashion Flash on April 14, 2018 in Falkensee F&P Stock Solution GmbH has been based in Falkensee since 2013. As one of the world's leading wholesalers in overstock, overhang and liquidation goods, we buy and sell shoes and textiles worldwide. In addition to the wholesale business, the second pillar of F&P Stock Solution is the "Fashion Flash". For two days, trendy locations throughout Germany are transformed into a shopping paradise for women. Thousands of top quality shoes from over 500 top brands at incredibly low prices, welcome sparkling wine, snacks in between, laid-back music and partners from the beauty and lifestyle sectors make shopping a real experience with "Fashion Flash". In April 2018 we finally made the ladies in our hometown Falkensee happy with our outlet event and could do something good by the way.   In January 2018, F&P came up with the idea of introducing the company in Falkensee and the surrounding area. With almost 50 employees, F&P Stock Solution is already one of the larger employers in the region. The Fashion Flash Event series quickly found a way to make people in Falkensee aware of us. As one of the big employers in Falkensee, we didn’t just want to present ourselves as a company, we wanted to use the event to help others who needed help. So we organized a Charity Fashion Flash together with the ASB Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, the TSV Falkensee and many others in the Stadthalle Falkensee. The goal was to financially support the children's shelter and the social-pedagogical family assistance in Falkensee (First Charity Fashion Flash in Falkensee).   The Charity Fashion Flash was a great success and F&P was glad to handed over a donation of 2,926 Euros to the ASB on May 16, 2018. (Donation for Children's Shelter)   With the donation from F&P, the children were able to realize many projects! A weekend at the Baltic Sea, a day trip to the "Tropical Island" or even a whole weekend escape from daily routine and experience canoeing or other adventures together. For recreational activities such as travel or educational trips the public funds are barely sufficient. These are usually used for livelihood or general educational work. We are all the more pleased that F&P Stock Solution has been able to do so much. In addition to the travels, the children were able to enhance the garden in the children's shelter. For example, wooden walls were erected and painted creatively, hedges were planted and the "self-construction space" project started, a kind of "do it yourself" corner for the children.   "Such activities strengthen the sense of community and home-based feeling. Only where children feel comfortable they can develop well. " (Thomas Girnth, Director of Children’s shelter)   Some of the children from the children’s shelter actively supported us at the event. It was great to see what this triggered in the teens. "They also experienced self-efficacy here in a large public setting. For the participating children, it was an event that had a very lasting memory. "(Thomas Girnth, Director of Children’s shelter)   Every single person who bought some shoes or textiles at the Charity Fashion Flash has contributed to the realization of the children’s great projects and to their success.   Once again, F&P would like to thank everyone involved: ASB, the logistics company RTC Spedition und Logistik, the city of Falkensee, the sports club TSV Falkensee, the local media and last but not least our F&P team.   We will probably make another Charity Fashion Flash in Falkensee in the spring of 2019 and are looking forward to it! ...

Our Fashion Flash Social Media Activities have been published as a sucess story on Instagram Business! Instagram is, without doubt, one of the largest social media sharing platforms for photos and videos with over a billion active users. Stars such as Selena Gomez or Christiano Ronaldo use the online platform extensively for their presentation in public. Meanwhile, the social media appearance is also a big part of the corporate marketing mix like its own website or a spot on television. F&P is one of the world's leading wholesalers in overstock shoes and overstock textiles, taking professionally and reliably care for customer returns, overhangs, overstocks, B-Stock and liquidation goods. But F&P has not only been successful since 2013 in the B2B business. We furthermore created an unique Pop-Up Outlet Event called "Fashion Flash", like there is no other in Germany, wich serves as the second pillar of the company. Within a few hours, we transform well-known event locations throughout Germany into a fashion shopping paradise for women. As a special pop-up outlet, we bring an unique shopping flair to previously empty halls for two days. Thousands of shoes from over 500 top brands at incredibly low prices in a top quality, champagne at the reception, candy and sweets, music in the background and partners from beauty and lifestyle brands make shopping at the "Fashion Flash" event series an unique experience.   The realisation and the success of such a complex event format relies on a strong team with a wide range of interdisciplinary expertise. The success story about our Social Media marketing activities is the result of the outstanding work by our marketing department, which gives us a clear signal that we are on the right track with our work. How do we become an Instagram Success Story? In the beginning there is an idea and the question of how to put it into reality? Even F&P's Fashion Flash pop up event series was "just" an idea in the beginning: How can we sell overstock items (shoes and textiles) without staining brands images and retailers? With the first pop up sale in Chemnitz in April 2013, F&P launched its success story "Fashion Flash". The idea was to reach as many potential customers as possible interested in overstock fashion (shoes and textiles), top brands, quality and different purchasing experience? After gaining first experiences with Facebook and other social media channels as marketing platforms, the question came up: Why arn't we using Instagram? So we start researching what other companies did well and what not regarding their Instagram marketing activities, compared best practices and spent many hours creating creative and relevant content for our profile. We started our intense focus on Instagram as an additional marketing channel about half a year ago. In order to understand the campaign formats, their impact on potential customers and the best strategy for our clients and target group, we went through the natural principle of trial and error. In this period our marketing department developed a variety of strategies, campaigns, designs and new ideas and event formats, such as our "Fashion Flash - Summer Vibes" event in Düsseldorf, to boost our relevance and to offer our clients over time something special and  We are proud to be an Instagram Success Story! “We are very proud to announce that our "Fashion Flash" social media marketing activities have been published at the global Instagram Business site as a "Success Story" and serve now as a best practice for other companies and advertisers regarding the use of Instagram Story multi-phase campaign strategies and video ads. A big thank you goes out to our online marketing team around Eugen for the great work!” (Jorgo, Head of Event) If you are interested in learning more about our social media practices have a look at the published case study at Instagram Business!     ...

What does it means to be Head of Sales at F&P Stock Solution? F&P is one of the world's leading companies in the overstock wholesale business. We value professional work, fast implementation of all daily tasks, sustainable customer relationships and high-quality products. Bringing this mixture into perfect harmony every day is a challenge of all our employees and works only through teamwork. The sales team plays a big part in this. Every day we take care of the sale of cheap overstock brands, cheap stocklots, liquidation overstocks or B-Stock in the textiles, shoes and accessories sectors. Ahead of everyone, our Head of Sales, Konstantine Papageorgiou - Kosta - , who is currently looking after a team of around 13 employees - and counting! The sales team (link on the website) of F&P not only includes the "Sales Agents", but also our Merchandisers and Content Managers. The international team around Kosta takes care of the demanding F&P customers all over the world, like Russia, Poland, Ukraine, France, Spain or here in Germany. And the most diverse stocks from brand manufacturers, such as overstocks, slow sellers, liquidation stocks, B-Stocks (2nd choice stocks), overstock from business resolutions or overproductions in various quality levels. Today we would like to give you a little look behind the scenes into the challenges that a Head of Sales at F&P has to master in this way. Kosta reports on his daily routine and the daily "madness" in the company headquarters in Falkensee. Have a look behind the scenes of F&P Stock Solution - Head of Sales! “With the risk of sounding repetitive, I will also begin with the fact that not one day at F&P is the same. The introduction of new products and offers on a weekly basis requires numerous meetings with different departments: buying, logistics and of course the sales team. Should we buy this overstock? How will we price these stocklots? How will we sell these overstocks? What do our B2B costumers expect from our overstock items? Which brands are remaining in demand? These, and many more, are questions my team and I face very often. When you think you have answered these questions however, that’s when the real fun begins, negotiations with customers! Frustration - disappointment - excitement - complaints - offers - counter offers - closing a deal, a successful sales person goes through a lot of emotional ups and downs every day. Nothing a round of table tennis can’t fix though :) My daily routine also involves optimising processes and structures in order to ensure we can deliver what we promise, setting goals and monitoring performance of the sales team and of course training. As I am in charge of the F&P Academy it is always a challenge to integrate young talent in the team and try to keep up with their energy, creativity and aspirations and make sure they get the most out of what is usually their first job. The sales department is a very energetic department, with requests and questions coming in at a constant, sometimes machine gun rate. One has to be quick on his feet in order to provide solutions and make the right decisions that ensure client satisfaction and secure business deals, whilst of course protecting company interests. Keeping this balance and creating win-win situations for everyone is the most important aspect of my job." Every day is a new challenge!   ...

We welcome our new team member in Content Management at F&P Stock Solution GmbH! The tasks of a Content Manager are quite diverse. It ranges from the creation of new online content and its implementation, to the support of existing platforms and finally their constant optimization. She, or rather in the case of F&P, "Joy" takes care of the creation of content, but above all plans and manages the image, text and multimedia content that should appeare on the website and keeps it up to date. In case of F&P Stock Solution, this means dealing with topics such as wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes, wholesale overstock, overstock clearance, fashion outlet events (designer outlet, Fashion Flash) and everything that has to do with fashion. The main focus is on brand name wholesale. F&P is one of the world's leading suppliers (wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes) in the topics of overstocks and leftover sale. Due to our wide network of suppliers and customers, we can rely on a large number of brand manufacturers, retailers and online platforms in the B2B leftover market . The domestic and foreign customers of F&P appreciate the discretion, reliability and professionalism with which we work. Some traits which are sometimes hard to find in the overstock market, as our two CEO’s Julius Göllner and Ole Schneikart learned in their past professional history.   F&P offers individual solutions for both, buyers and vendors of overstocks, such as clarifying questions such as: Where can I buy returned goods and overstocks? How do I get to brand name returns and overstocks? What do I do with my liquidations, overstock shoes and/or overstock clothing? How can I protect my brand, despite the sale of my overstocks and returns? How can I quickly get rid of my customer returns, liquidation goods or overstocks? For all questions F&P Stock Solution is finding fast answers. In the password protected online B2B-Shop of F&P, overstock buyers can find a good overview of our currently available goods. Of course with all the resprective restictions. Again, the Content Managers of F&P, such as Joy, are busy maintaining the page. They create product descriptions for the goods in the warehouse, maintain photos of textile (remnants: women's clothing, designer clothing, children's clothing and many more), shoes (remnants: cheap name brand shoes, women's shoes, sneakers, etc.) and pay attention to up-to-dateness and quality.   A few facts about Joy!   Joy, our new back up in Content Management, is 22 years old, a "real Berlin ladie" and has been working at F&P since the beginning of August.   "I'm Joy, 22, born in Berlin and recently finished my apprenticeship as an Industrial Clerk this summer. I had the dream of becoming a Fashion Designer when I was young, but after having graduated from high school, I discarded it. But fashion, beauty and social media have always been a huge passion of mine, so I am super happy to be able to turn my hobby into a career. At F&P Stock Solution I have the ideal conditions for this, I am encouraged individually and from the start I was able to contribute a lot myself. Working as a Content Manager is never boring here. Every day there are new tasks and challenges to master. The mix at F&P from wholesale and overstock for textiles and shoes of great designer brands is perfect for fashionistas like me. I have daily contact with well-known brands, write detailed product descriptions and can directly look in the warehouse at the brands goods that I want to visualize potential customers in the online shop for remaining stock directly. This way, I not only get to know our brand clearance items in detail, but also the quality behind the products.   The team at F&P supported and welcomed me from the beginning. I am looking forward to the upcoming time!"   The entire F&P team, especially Julius and Ole, wish Joy an exciting and happy time with a lot of great experiences. ...

Project Management at F&P Stock Solution - Have a look behind the scenes at Fashion Flash (Designer Outlet) by F&P! F&P Stock Solution GmbH is one of the world's leading suppliers (wholesale clothing, wholesale shoes) for overstock and remaining stock sales. We take care of overstock clearance, liquidation, customer returns and remaining inventory from top level brands. We work fast, professional, sustainable, holistic and silent. We sell our products via two sales channels: B2B (wholesale pallets) and B2C (end customers) via our event series "Fashion Flash". Our Fashion Flash is a big popup outlet event (Designer Outlet), where we turn top level locations all over Germany into an extraordinary fashion outlet (cheap name brand shoes, textiles and accessories) for women in just two days. Champagne at the reception, something sweet for in between, partners for beauty and lifestyle, in the background some music, all of this makes shopping at Fashion Flash an experience for the ladies. We combine the advantages of Outlet Online Shopping with those of "real" shopping, making the event unique. It’s not only a closeout, it’s a Designer Outlet Store for fashionistas. We need a lot of know-how as well as motivated and dedicated project managers to implement all the Fashion Flash events that F&P Stock Solution holds out each year. Viktoria, a project manager at F&P Stock Solution and responsible for Fashion Flash (Designer Outlet), tells us exclusively something about her job. Learn something about Viktoria, Project Manager at our Outlet Event: "I am Viktoria and since February 2017 I am the project manager at F&P Stock Solution for the event series "Fashion Flash" (Designer Outlet). I was born in Russia and came to Germany with my parents when I was a teen. Before I started at F&P Stock Solution and Fashion Flash, I worked as a project manager in Berlin." What does a Project Manager for Fashion Flash at F&P Stock Solution do? "I take care of the entire planning and implementation of the outlet events at Fashion Flash. For this I search for suitable and interesting locations, which fits to the unique brand outlet event of F&P. Once the right location has been found, room planning continues, because Fashion Flash isn’t just a "closeout market", but lives on the atmosphere and the huge selection of brands, models and styles. This makes the Fashion Flash from F&P Stock Solution a special brand outlet. In order to draw as many potential customers as possible to the outlet event, we need as many marketing channels as possible. This means that I contact the local media, such as daily newspapers, radio stations and/or special websites for events throughout Germany (websites for brand outlet, fashion outlet, designer outlet, trade fairs, etc.) or fashion blogs for introducing our fashion flash personally. In most cases, the people are thrilled by the concept of fashion flash. Of course, official permits, planning of personnel deployment and the entire logistics are also part of the implementation of fashion flash (Designer Outlets). The team of F&P Stock Solution, which made out the event on the day of the event, is local staff and takes care of a thousand TODo’s, such as the constant filling of cheap name brand shoes, textiles and accessories; the pouring of the champagne and the well-being of the customers. On the day of the Fashion Flash itself, I coordinate the team and even introduce myself to the cashier or the reception. At the end of an exhausting, but usually also successful Fashion Flash weekend, everything has to be "rebuild", which means that I keep everything in mind, so that we not only leave the customers of our Outlet Event satisfied, but also the manager from the locations. Back at the headquarters of F&P Stock Solution in Falkensee, the remaining shoes and textiles have to be unloaded, checked and repackaged. Once again, I contact the press to encourage coverage of the Fashion Flash that has taken place. We want to stay in mind! The organization and implementation of such an outlet event, like our Fashion Flash, requires a lot of structured work, good planning and a good team behind it. There are always a lot of challenges to master. F&P Stock Solution runs more than 40 fashion flashes every year, and every outlet event is different." Working at F&P Stock Solution is ...: "I love the overall package that Fashion Flash brings with it: the paperwork, traveling around, the team spirit and the little adrenalin rush before a Fashion Flash starts - when the gates are opened and the ladies swarm into our halls. I like to come to the office and enjoy the casual, but also professional working atmosphere. Everyone at F&P Stock Solution helps everyone and has fun at work. Fashion Flash is not just a closeout market, but a special outlet event that makes women happy. The concept of F&P Stock Solution is unique and leading this project is a lot of fun. The short and uncomplicated communication channels at F&P allow us to master almost all challenges."   (written by Viktoria Eder, Project Manager) ...
