Inventory Product Destruction News

Burberry had revenue of $3.6 billion in 2017 but it destroyed $36.8 million worth of its own merchandise in the same year. In its annual report released in July 2018, the company admitted that it demolishes goods as a strategy to preserve its reputation of exclusivity.

But due to shoppers’ outrage over the news, Burberry announced in September 2018 that it would immediately stop destroying its excessive products.

Besides Burberry, various other companies from Nike and Richemont to Louis Vuitton employ this practice. The major reason brands destroy their product is to maintain exclusivity through scarcity.  In 2017, a Danish TV station revealed that H&M burnt 60 tons of unsold and new clothes since 2013.

In May 2018, Richemont admitted that it had destroyed $563 million worth of watches over the past two years in order to keep its products away from unauthorized sellers. Furthermore, eagle-eyed shoppers and whistleblowing sales associates also indicate that the practice happened at Walmart, Michael Kors, Urban fitters, J.C. Penny, and Victoria’s Street.
