Name Brand Liquidations will open a third store in the Gateway Mall

EDWARDSVILLE — Name Brand Liquidations, in operation since 2005, will open its third store in mid-November — this one in the Gateway Shopping Center in space formerly occupied by P&R Discounts.

Joe Foley, owner of the business with his wife, son and two others, said Thursday the store will employ 10 to 15 people at the Edwardsville store, which will be the company’s largest at 20,000 square feet. .

Name Brand Liquidations operates two other stores – in Laflin and Berwick – with 25 employees in total.

According to the company’s website, Name Brand Liquidations was launched in 2005 with the goal of saving consumers money. Foley said the company has grown from its online stores to two retail stores, with the third set to open soon.

“We have an ever-changing inventory with new products arriving daily,” the website says. “Shop both stores often for the biggest selection. And don’t forget that on the 25th of every month, our clearance markdowns take effect.

The company’s stated promise is as follows:

“You can shop with confidence from us, as every item purchased from our stores is covered by our 14-day return period. Items must be returned in the condition purchased. Please have your original receipt to expedite processing. .
