I'm making a webshop and I can't find a good name for a special category.

Is there any name for a category that holds products which will be no longer sold after the stock has been run out? In hungarian there is a name "Kifutó" for it, which means that these products are the last ones. But these are not "last" pieces, there could be a lot of them (maybe more than 1000), the name should means that we stop selling these goods after all of them has been bought. Or should I just call it "LAST PRODUCTS"? But I wouldn't like to suggest that there are only a few pieces left.

    "closeouts" is a common term for items where inventory will be sold until gone - it doesn't necessarily imply that there will only be a few left of something recently put on closeout but it might imply that there could be fewer choices of sizes and colors for closeout items that had been there for a while - "Ending soon" ?

In certain business sectors products have a "life-cycle". For example electronic components you might have a product that goes from first New, then transition to a Last-time-buy, then End-of-life, and finally Discontinued. The reason being that those components may need to still be supported because they are a part for other products that are still being made. Using this example, even if your products don't undergo any sort of life-cycle, you could use the term "Last Time Buy" to indicate that once the stock is sold you won't have any more.


Whenever I hear ads from sellers getting rid of old stock they say "stocktake sale."

A stock-take sale is a sale with reduced prices in a shop designed to sell off stock from previous seasons. Stock-taking

It think it implies that someone is getting rid of old inventory. I don't know if this applies to your case.
