|Bargains Make Me Happy|
We all love deals and deep discounts on name brand items. What’s a deep discount? I consider it to be 80%-90% off the original price. I just discovered an outlet store that handles all sorts of items that have been returned to big name online retailers (think of Amazing retailers). When the packaging has been damaged to the point that the item has obviously been returned, the retailer decides it’s not in good enough shape to sell. So they sell it to re-sellers who sell it at a fraction of the original cost. It it’s something you need, you can reap the savings!
Bargain Hunt Superstores (I have no connection with them) is one of these re-sellers in the southeast US with deals like this. Baby items are plentiful, but like most items, it’s hit or miss in what you’ll find at any one time. Since the items are not in perfect packages you probably won’t be able to gift the items. However you might find things that friends and family will be happy to get if they are not put off by the damaged packaging. Or let your them know when you spot something there you think they would like or need. Bring your smart phone to check on item ratings while you’re in the store if you like or buy items that you know are good. A close friend tells me she gets baby items for 80%-90% off at one of these stores.
There are large toys there too & this could come in handy for Christmas and birthday shopping for your own kids. I’m assuming items will not qualify for any warranties that usually come with the item. A way to gift smaller items to others might be to put the unwrapped items in a gift basket and wrap in plastic wrap with a pretty bow.
Here are the locations of the Bargain Hunt stores.
I hope you can find stores like this near you. If you know of other names for these type stores, please share!
