How to Find a Target Liquidation Store + A List of Locations by State

A Target salvage store near me, in Milford, CT

As a Target super fan, one of the best discoveries I’ve made in the last few years is the almighty Target liquidation store, also known as a Target salvage store.

These wonderful warehouses of other people’s Target returns and unsold items are like a dreamland for Target afficionados.

So what are Target salvage stores (sometimes known as bin stores) and how do you find them? I’ve had luck finding Target salvage stores near me in a few different ways, and I’ve also uncovered a few online Target liquidators, too. Here, I’ll hare my secrets, as well as a running list of all of the Target salvage store locations I’ve found around the county so far.

How to find a Target liquidation store

Not sure if you have a Target salvage store near you? There are a few ways to find them.

1. Try your local Goodwill

I first realized that Target was getting rid of its overstock items when I was shopping at the Goodwill. Yes! If you didn’t know this secret, The Goodwill is one of the best Target salvage stores around.

I kept seeing items from Target, new in the box, with green “salvage” stickers on them. So I asked a Goodwill employee about the Target inventory, and she told me that they got regular shipments of Target salvage items. Most Goodwills I’ve been to sell Target liquidations.

2. Check Facebook Marketplace

One of the most consistent ways that I’ve found Target salvage stores is through Facebook marketplace. This is how I found the Connecticut Target salvage warehouses, Kathalow Warehouse Treasures and GNC Liquidation.

Oftentimes, owners of these liquidation warehouses will list their items online as a secondary sales strategy and to get people into their stores. So, open up Facebook marketplace and start searching things like “Target lamp” or “Threshold rugs” or whatever else you want to find – but try to include Target or a Target brand name (like Threshold, Project 62, Studio McGee, etc) in your keyword to narrow down your searches more easily.

If you find a seller with many listings, like over 30, check out their profile. There’s a chance they run a Target salvage store or operation. Look at their items and profile to see if they list an address for a warehouse or retail store.

3. Get Ye to TikTok

TikTok-ers love to share their Target Salvage Finds. Just open up the app and type in “Target salvage store” or “Target liquidations,” or “Target salvage” and your location, and you’ll find all sorts of videos from various influencers on location at their favorite Target liquidator.

4. Ask a Target employee

Another great way to find a Target liquidation store is to just ask a Target employee. Try someone who works in inventory (the people you see stocking shelves), or someone at the customer service desk. You may have to try a few different people to get an answer – my local Target suggested visiting the Goodwill, but it’s worth a shot to ask in case your local store donates to additional locales.

5. Head to Google

You can also do some Googling. Besides just searching “Target salvage store near me,” you can also look for things like:

  • Bin store near me”
  • “Liquidation Warehouse near me”
  • “Clearance center near me”
  • “Target liquidator near me”
  • “Target warehouse”
  • “Amazon liquidator”

I suggest trying some of these other terms, and searching for Amazon liquidators as well, since many of these salvage stores sell items from other retailers, too. “Bin stores” is probably your best bet, since that’s what many of these types of retailers call themselves.

List of Target Salvage Stores By State

If you’ve been endlessly searching “target salvage stores near me” and coming up empty, I’ve compiled a list of salvage store locations I know about. These stores typically sell Target salvage, as well as items from other big box retailers like Amazon, Home Depot, Walmart, etc., so it’s a good idea to call and ask when their last Target shipment was.

Can you find a Target liquidation store online?

If you can’t find a Target salvage store near you, the awesome news is that you can shop Target salvage online, too.

Some Target re-sellers have opted to sell their items online instead of in a physical store. The most popular spot to find Target salvage online is eBay.

The biggest seller I’ve personally come across is called Bullseye Deals. They’ve done over 1.1 million sales, and have all kinds of Target things listed at all times. I’ve pretty much seen every piece of Studio McGee for Target decor go through their inventory, so if you’re looking for something specific, I’d suggest checking their stock often.

You can also simply do an eBay search for a Target item you’re looking for, and see what sellers come up.

What is a Target Salvage Store?

Target salvage stores are retail stores and warehouses that buy pallets of Target returns and items that Target doesn’t sell, and then they offer those items at a discount. These stores used to be few and far between, but are becoming more and more popular across the U.S.

There are two Target salvage stores near me, one called Kathalow Warehouse Treasures, in Bethel, CT, and another called GNC Liquidations in Milford, CT And there are literally thousands of them around the U.S., with more cropped up constantly.

What do Target Salvage Stores Sell?

Target salvage stores sell all kinds of items from Target. I’m talking:

  • Home decor
  • Furniture
  • Items from the Bullseye playground
  • Seasonal decor and holiday items
  • Clothing
  • Bedding and textiles
  • Small appliances
  • Housewares
  • Kitchen tools
  • Electronics
  • Kids toys
  • Health and beauty items

And lots more.

Many of the itesm you’ll find are discontinued Target items, but many of them are also things you’ll still find in the store. I love seeing items that I almost bought full price, for about half off in a Target salvage store.

How cheap are Target salvage stores?

Another shot from GNC Liquidations

Target salvage store generally sell items anywhere from 40-60% off. I asked one of the employees at Kathalow Warehouse Treasures, the Target salvage store near me, about the pricing, and she says their employees look up an item online and then mark it down to 40-50% off depending on what the item is.

I’ve bought a chair that was originally $200 for $120, and a set of dishware that was originally $40 for about $20.

Where do Target liquidations come from?

Essentially, Target sells its salvage inventory to clear out items they can no longer sell for some reason, and make room for new merchandise.

Items are deemed “salvage” for a few reasons, including:

  • It’s a seasonal item that’s now out-of-season
  • It’s a return item or open-box
  • It’s an item with minor defects that can’t be sold at full price
  • It’s an overstock item and there’s simply too much of it

Whatever the reason, I’m just happy they’re not throwing it in a landfill and giving people a chance to purchase it at a lower price!

How do you buy wholesale Target salvage?

Another interesting thing I’ve found out on my quest to discover all of the Target salvage stores around me, is that there are also lots of ways to buy wholesale Target salvage, or in other words, to purchase entire pallets of Target salvage. If you’re interested in this, you can bid in online auctions, or visit a local wholesale liquidator near you.

There’s one in Connecticut called American Liquidations, for example. An interesting idea if you’re looking for a way to make some extra money!
