"The real difference is that other retailer only has, let's say, five televisions on sale," Carpenter said. "We have every single one of the televisions on sale in the store."
All sales are final at the liquidation, and Carpenter's firm and others have until March 31 to sell all of the inventory -- so prices should start to drop significantly in coming days.
During liquidation sales, employees gradually start to take other jobs as the close date approaches, said Carpenter, noting that he didn't expect to lay anyone off before the end of March.
"In fact, we'll probably need to hire a few additional people," he said.
