At RockAuto.com, "Wholesaler Closeout parts" means inventory purchased from competing stores, car manufacturers, etc. Maybe the competing store is going out of business or maybe they decided there is no longer a big market for those parts in their geographic region.
Prices for Wholesaler Closeout parts are usually at least 30% less than RockAuto's regular, low priced inventory. Rare or hard to find closeout parts also have low prices. Closeout parts did not come directly from the part manufacturer and so are covered by a 30 day warranty rather than regular manufacturer warranties.
Closeout parts are available in limited quantities.
