Upscale home goods and gifts from deep-discount superstores. – In Short
In the hundreds of stores nationwide, treasure-hunting customers dig through troves of discounted designer home accents--slashed 50 to 80 percent off retail price. Stocked with department store-quality closeouts, the warehouses display upscale, brand-name merchandise like Lego toys, Samsonite luggage, and famous-maker rugs, linens, glassware, china and lawn and garden supplies. Gifts and seasonal holiday items are also sold. Regulars keep track of the changing merchandise and specials through direct mail catalogues and email newsletters.
