Bargain Finds


Open Box Stores

By Suzanne O'Connor

With online shopping becoming the norm, internet stores are now taking even more customer returns. These open box items are then sold to liquidators like Open Box Stores that sell them to the public at 25%-65% below retail everyday.

Tucked into a corner of a mini mall, this good sized outlet is packed with just about everything. A true treasure hunt, you’ll find toys, tools, sporting goods, furniture, small appliances, linens and bedding, apparel, office, kitchenware, gift, beauty and jewelry items that were returns, shelf pulls, overstock as well as brand new items.

Most items are customer returns and liquidated product from Kohls, ShopCo, Sam’s Club and Walmart. Though not top of the line items, there are plenty of great deals on good quality goods once you start hunting.

Highlights included a 4900 Series Food Saver for $60 instead of $149.  An Oster Countertop oven with Convention is $72 instead of $120.  A Sharper Image Charge Tower that was $39.99 is here at $16. A North Crest French Tile Queen Quilt Set that was $160 is $75. A North Crest 300tc, 100% Pima Cotton Full sheet set is $39 instead of $79.  A 10” Miter Saw with Lazar guide is $126 instead of $179. A Hoover Floor Mate Hard wood floor system was $75 instead of $100, some clear acrylic ball lamp bases were $15 instead of $25 and a modern upholstered accent chair in a nice blue linen with nail head trim was $149 instead of $230.

Everything here is sold as is, without warranty. So do examine everything carefully. Returns are accepted up to 7 days for store credit.

Reasonably well organized, it’s still a hunt at this cool outlet. The deals here warrant a little bit of effort. Those that take a little more time, will walk away with the best deals.

A fun new haunt for Inland empire shoppers.
