overstockbins

Lexington will soon welcome a new business offering a variety of items at discounted prices.

Overstock Bins will open its doors in Lexington at 754 West Main Street, formerly a Goodwill beside the now vacant Kmart.

Owner Stephen Hennessey said the business began as an "off-shoot" of an existing business of his called Overstock Liquidation. "We were buying truckloads of inventory and selling it by the palette," Hennessey said. "We got the items from business cleanouts, and purchased liquidated assets."

Hennessey said that the new bin store will offer shoppers a chance to find a wide variety of items. "The items will come from Amazon, Stapes, Target, Walmart and other stores," he said. "Shoppers could find anything from a brand new Xbox to phone cases."

The store will open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Items will be restocked for the weekend Thursdays after closing.

Hennessey said whatever items are left from Saturday will be discounted the following week. Merchandise from the previous week will cost $4 on Tuesday, $2 on Wednesday and $1 on Thursday, or shoppers can fill a with as many items as they would like for $25.

"Our footprint is a little different," said Hennessey. "I want to provide a good shopping experience and I don’t want people having to wait outside for three to four hours just to get in."

Overstock Bins will open Friday. Hennessy said he wanted to ensure the store was open before Christmas so shoppers could take advantage of the deals. Hours of operation and store pricing are subject to change depending on community response, according to Hennessey.
