I have been dying to tell you about one of my favorite finds of all time. Almost 2 years ago, I was opening up my valpak and inside was a coupon that intrigued me.

A place called Plateau Trading Company. They have since become Bimore and boast a "12,000 sq ft warehouse full of new, overstock merchandise from major department stores." There are a total of 5 Bimore stores including Camas, WA - Yakima, WA - Eugene, OR - Redding, CA & Enumclaw, WA.

It had a coupon for 25¢ dish soap and so I made the effort to visit the store in Enumclaw, WA. I have been about 50 times now and have found a bargain every time. It is a treasure hunt of spontaneous sales and dented goods. They have come a long way in two years. I actually liked it better before when they were still new and not as organized but I still make the effort to go down there often. They hold FANTASTIC sidewalk sales---rumor has it, the next one is over memorial day weekend and I, for one, will be there bright and early.

(In the past I have snagged contact solution for 25¢, boxes of kotex pads for 10¢ and adult size clothing for $1 at the sidewalk sale. They also do giveaways where you can buy a banana box full of misc food and goods for $5 and there could be a gift certificate in it. I have never won but always been very excited about what was in the box.)

I asked Candy, my favorite checker if I could take some pictures and feature the store on my website and she graciously complied.

Here is some information you will want to know:

It truly is a warehouse and not what you would expect but the sign is clear out front and their is plenty of parking.


Their clothing and shoes have colored tag sales. 25%-90% off. You can check out their specials every week here. Their clearance sections are in the very back of the store. They put most of the 90% off clothes and 50% merchandise back there.

For example, today I found 4 pair of shorts for baby gifts (carter & osh kosh) for 20¢ a piece. They were pink tags and marked down from $1.99 (which isn't even a bad price.) That's cheaper than yard sales ya'll!

Lots of food and beverages.

Their furniture section is humongous. I am always eyeing their sectionals and leather sets. Their 3-piece leather bomber set was just $799.99 (plus you could use the $50 off $500 coupon in valpak and come in on T-shirt Thursday and get an extra 10% off-read more on this 10% deal below.)

They always have a frenzy of the week. In the past I have seen candy bars for 10¢ and vitamin water cases for $4.99. This week it is:
All spices-85¢ each
Reynolds 'Recycled' Foil-$1.00
Noz Energy Drinks-33¢ each

They used to have this giant turning display of random candy bars all priced at 4/$1 and since they have organized it more like a store. I even saw 6 packs of Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bars for 75¢. You could stock up for s'mores for the summer at that price.

And then there is T-Shirt Thursdays. If you buy one of their shirts and then wear it in on Thursday, you get 10% off your entire bill. I have done this many times in conjunction with my coupon and saved a ton. I believe their shirts are $4 but they could be $3. I can't remember.
I have literally worn mine out.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, bring in your own bags and get 5% off your entire purchase.

Upon leaving the store you can fill out a quick survey for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.

This is another one of the little things I picked up today. These are normally $3 or so and I got 2 boxes for 75¢ each.

If you don't get valpak coupons, you can go onto valpak.com or Bimore.com and print out a coupon for $10/$50 purchase. I promise you won't have any problem finding things to buy but I have oft times had trouble spending that much just because everything is so cheap.
(FYI-They do not take manufacturers coupons but they do accept EBT-food stamps.)

Do yourself a favor, GO! Or don't...that just means more for me!

They have household, toys, clothes, shoes, food, linens, gardening supplies, camping/fishing gear, holiday decorations, automotive, electronics, personal hygiene, medicines, kitchen gear, fresh produce and milk, baby gear, diapers and so much more.

I love that place! And I didn't know there was one in Eugene... that gives me something to look forward to if we ever make it out there.
