The Bin Store has made its way to West Columbia, offering a new way for shoppers to find hidden treasures for cheap. The local family and veteran-owned business held a grand opening Friday morning and welcomed many guests who waited in line to start shopping.

Michael and Jennifer Prendamano first opened The Bin Store in North Augusta, SC, then partnered with Craig and Brad Giles to open a second location in West Columbia.

Truckloads of new, overstock merchandise from major retailers are delivered to the store in pallets. According to The Bin Store, over 20,000 products are received each week, including electronics, home goods, cosmetics, toys, video games, tools and more.

Bins are completely emptied and cleaned out every Thursday and leftover merchandise is donated to local charities. Items are restocked every Friday and Saturday. 

Box opening stations are located around the store for customers to test electronics and make sure all parts are included, with the assistance of an employee.

The Bin Store is located at 2814 Augusta Rd. and is open every day of the week. Visit for more information.
