JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – “We’re spending several hours a day on Facebook with an “offer up” event from noon until 7pm with a break in there for everyone,” said Larry Watters of Around the Bin. Around the Bin, usually with elbow-to-elbow crowds digging for bargains and a line outside the door into the parking lot, has had to make a complete about face as to how it conducts business. That’s where the Facebook event comes into play.
Inventory includes electronics, iPads, household items, bar stools and toys as well as Apple ear buds and lots more items. Shoppers can pay with cash or credit card and have 48 hours to claim their items.
The usual hustling and bustling of the bargain room is quiet now except for a handful of employees at Around the Bin.
Watters staff of six answers the phone and personally delivers items purchased to their buyers as they pull through the parking lot to drive off with their bargains. Customers ease through the pick-up lane, call 423.377.1999 and they stay in their car waiting for their purchases to be brought out. Pick-up hours are 11 am until 6 pm.
The hunt for bargains has a new twist in these changing times at Around the Bin.
“It’s gone well. We’re able to pay our employees and our rent until we’re able to fully reopen,” said Watters. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 05/01/2020-6AM)
