The business of NOZ is to revalue theunsold stocks of suppliers, industrialists, manufacturers and wholesalersin France and worldwide. The expertise of purchasing center lies largely in the relationship of trust they develop upstream with companies needing to clear stock.

A major and historic player

in the circular economy

The NOZ Universe offers a range of anti-waste » and local products that can be reused..

by buying batches of products from bankruptcies or overstocks from manufacturers and distributors, to resell in its Laval store.

Since then , the brand has always remained true to its DNA as a clearance company unlike discounters, it does not manufacture any products.It only buys and resells items from overstock, end-of-series, end-of-collection, cancelled orders, damaged or changed packaging or auctions. NOZ gives a second life to products that can no longer be sold in their usual distribution channels.
