To protect the health and safety of the public and our employees, DCP has limited on-site staffing at 450 Columbus Blvd. While mail and phone calls will be processed as quickly as possible, we recommend using our online services, or sending an email to the appropriate division/person instead. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Close-Out Sales

A close-out sale or going out of business sale includes all sales advertised, represented or held as selling out, liquidating or liquidation, lost our lease, forced to vacate, moving to new location, or any other similar description. It is not the same as a bankruptcy sale.
Both the business owner and the promoter of a closing out sale must obtain a Closing Out Sale License from the Department of Consumer Protection.
The business must also file with the Department of Consumer Protection an inventory of all goods on hand.A business may request a license for up to 90 days. (No extensions.) A local license or permit from the municipality may also be required.
