Who We Are

Our Story

In 1984, Ken and his father, Bill McAllister, set up shop at the corner of Kingsway and Commercial Drive in Vancouver. Over the years, they have found deals varying from yarn, stickers, and toys, to air compressors, wrenches and tarps (and everything in between!). Thirty-plus years later, the Midland legacy has continued to expand to three generations, as now Bill McAllister’s grandsons are helping grow the business.

The family’s business has expanded, not just in our product offerings, but in locations as well. Now there are two locations to serve Lower Mainland customers – location at 1234 Kingsway in Vancouver and at 19335 Langley Bypass in Surrey.

Midland Liquidators guides itself by

these core principles:

  • We care for our customers, each other, and our business.
  • We diligently serve our customers by providing them with quality service and professional product knowledge.
  • We work hard to help, encourage, and challenge each other to become the best we can be.
  • We help those in society who are disadvantaged or less fortunate, both here in our community and around the world.
  • We honour God in all our decisions.

About the Store

For over 30 years, Midland Liquidators has been sourcing, buying, and selling top-quality merchandise and passing on amazing deals and providing great service to our customers.

We started out as small liquidator; while that’s still a big part of what we do, we’ve grown to become one of the Lower Mainland’s top destinations for finding incredible buys on home, industrial, and commercial tools and supplies.

Our History


Ken and father, Bill McAllister, open Midland Liquidators at 1789 Kingsway in Vancouver.



October 23, in the middle of the night, a fire causes Midland Liquidators to burn to the ground.


December 3, Midland Liquidators reopens its doors at 1234 Kingsway, advertising a “fire sale” with all smoke-smelling product.



Midland Liquidators celebrates 30 years in business. Midland opens its second location at 19335 Langley Bypass!
