    This might sound dumb to some but what are "department store codes".

    From what I gather online wholesale/liquidation places are not allowed to mention actual name of the store eg Target, Macy's etc but rather use "codes" to Identify them.

    In most cases the websites will provide the information to you if requested but I have been reluctant to inquire as to avoid being spammed and called every hour.

    Are the department store code numbers same for all online wholesale/liquidation websites ( eg is Macy's always code #24 ) or does each website assign different # ? If the first is the case how could we find out what stores are labeled what # wihtout asking the websites directly?
    If anyone is using any of reputable online liquidation websites and is allowed to share their info I would greatly appreciate it.
