Moving into the fast-paced, high-stakes, buy-and-sell world, The Liquidator produced by the Edmonton and Vancouver based Anaïd Productions, premieres Thursday, July 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Starring Jeff Schwarz — owner of one of the biggest liquidation houses west of the Rockies — the series delves into the high-stakes world of buying and selling and introduces viewers to the unique life of haggler, trader and owner of Vancouver’s largest liquidation store, Jeff Schwarz. When it comes to moving discarded merchandise, Schwarz has done it all. Setting his sights on the big-time deal, he’s trading up to become the “Liquidation King,” living out his mission of buying low, selling high, and keeping the merchandise moving. Each 13-part, 30-minute episode shows a day in the life of Schwarz – from getting the tip and checking out the goods, to making the deal, finding a buyer, and watching the dollar signs soar or sink.
In the series premiere “Bricks and Mortals,” Schwarz finds treasure in a trash heap as he picks through the remains of a heavy duty diesel shop. From power tools to forklifts, Schwarz has hit the motherload and decides the best way to sell and make a big profit is through an auction.
