Big and large event likes a wedding, birthday, social gathering or anniversary requires many resources. Purchasing and investing dinnerware, kitchenware, and glassware in bulk can save our time and money.
However, when purchasing the items in bulk we need to consider some factors such as: the style, cost per piece, quantity that we will be needed, and the available space at home to keep the stocks.
Large and wholesale stores like Carrefour, Hypermart, and Makro can be a good option if you need to buy wine glasses in bulk. If necessary, you can ask some local stores to supply wine glasses in bulk for you.
Read some tips below:
Determine what the kind of wine glasses you want to use. Should it be for red wine or white wine. Usually, red wine glasses having larger diameter than the white as the wine aroma can be more appreciated.
Determine how many glasses will be needed? Plan to supply 10% more glasses than guests. This will give spares in case of breakage, chipping or guest complaint.
Check local and wholesale stores that sell glassware. Also consider any applicable delivery charges. You may also consider restaurant, local discount, overstock, or closeout stores.
Get a bargain from your local retail store. Often, purchasing glassware at a local supply store not only gives a better price, but also allows us to inspect each case for broken or cracked glasses.
Check on line stores, if there is no local supply. However, you should consider for the additional shipping charges and the inability to inspect breakage.
Importantly, to maintain you glassware, ensure to wash each glass before use. Glasses sold in packs come directly from the manufacture and can have oil, grease or dirt left over from the manufacturing process. Also, inspect every glass for cracks before placing them on the table. Otherwise it may injure your guests.
