Essex Bargain Hunt Opens Its 1st Bargain Hunt Superstore Location In Chattanooga

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Essex Bargain Hunt announced that it will be celebrating the grand opening of its first Bargain Hunt Superstore location in Southeast Tennessee. The new store officially opened its doors Wednesday, and is at 1301 Hickory Valley Road, Chattanooga.

Essex Bargain Hunt is a Nashville-based chain of retail stores that acquires electronics, clothing, household goods, HDTVs, toys, and other merchandise through liquidation sales and "asset recovery," then sells the goods at a deep discount in its stores. The company has 21 other locations spread across six states including Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Georgia, Indiana and Alabama.

Officials said this unique “warehouse clearance center” concept store, with its discount program, features name brand manufacturer close-outs, overstock and discontinued items, floor model samples and factory direct volume purchased merchandise. Bargain Hunt sells everything from small appliances, electronics, tools, men’s women’s and children’s apparel, toys, computers, sporting goods and furniture. Bargain Hunt offers a unique retail shopping experience and their automatic markdown system (once a product has been in their store for 30 days it starts marking down 10% every 10 days up to 90% off) keeps their inventory fresh with stores receiving truckloads of merchandise two to three times a week.

“We are very excited to have this opportunity to expand our business down to Chattanooga, bring more jobs into the area and celebrate our Grand Opening with the people of Chattanooga, Cleveland and surrounding cities,” said spokesman Peter Adams. “The shopping experience at Bargain Hunt Superstore is unlike any other and the savings our customers receive are at times unbelievable.  If you like great deals, you will love our store.”

Bargain Hunt Superstores are able to offer the lowest prices and deepest discounts on quality merchandise that can be found anywhere in the Southeast. All purchases are backed by a 30-day return policy so customers are able to shop with confidence knowing that their purchases are backed for 30 days from date of receipt.

Regular store hours will be open from 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 12-6 p.m. on Sunday.

I’ll admit I paid little more than scant attention to the Monday funeral of Michael Brown, the 18-year-old who was shot and killed by police bullets in Ferguson, Mo., after he allegedly was involved in strong-armed robbery. There are too many tawdry details and, in my way of thinking, there is nothing under God’s sun, absolutely nothing, that gives others the right to riot, burn ... (click for more)
