Only In America - Unclaimed Baggage Centre
Calling all bargain hunters!!
You'll simply back flip with excitement at the thought of this store in northern Alabama.
All unclaimed baggage from around the USA is shipped to this centre in Scottsboro, Alabama and sorted into easy-to-prowl departments. You name it and it's there: jewellery, designer clothes, sporting equipment, cameras etc..
Founded in 1970 by Doyle and Sue Owens as a part-time business, it soon became a
full-time venture. In 1978, the Owens' incorporated the company and watched it
prosper into one of the great 'hidden' bargain centres for savvy shoppers. Over one million articles pass through the centre annually..
Strange but true, just a few of the interesting items recovered:
A Barbie Doll with $500 packed inside
A guidance system for F16 jet fighter
A suit of armour
A diamond ring set in platinum
A rattle snake
A stop here is a must on your next Deep South itinerary!
