What is the benefit of shopping at Dirt Cheap Building Supplies?

Whether you are building or remodeling, Dirt Cheap Building Supplies is sure to have something for you.  Dirt Cheap Building Supplies offers new, high-quality building supplies 40% to 90% off the regular retail price.  Looking for great tile, crown moulding or light fixtures?  But on a budget?  Dirt Cheap Building Supplies allows you to purchase the same items you see in typical building supply stores, but for a fraction of the regular price.

What is the difference between Dirt Cheap Building Supplies and other home building supply retailers?

Most retailers have an established set of vendors and distributors who they purchase goods from at a wholesale price.   Dirt Cheap is a retailer in the secondary market, which means that we purchase goods from traditional retailers who have had a hard time selling those items through normal channels of distribution due to errors in purchasing, increased competition or down economies.  Our merchandise changes weekly, and sometimes daily, so it's always a unique shopping experience.

How can you sell your merchandise so cheaply?

Our business model allows us to not only form relationships with major retailers, but also provide a valuable service by removing their problem inventories.  By providing this service to them we are able to obtain merchandise for much less than the original retail cost, which in turn allows us to pass the savings on to you. 

How do Dirt Cheap Building Supplies buyers find merchandise for the stores to sell?

Our buyers travel the country purchasing large amounts of building supplies from bankruptcies, overstocks, unpaid orders, cancelled housing/business developments where supplies were already purchased, salvage claims, seconds or "B" grade material generated during normal manufacturing processes, and closeouts.

Is all of the merchandise you sell damaged?

No. Some items may have slight damage, but the vast majority or our inventory is in perfect condition.

Do all locations have the same merchandise?

Our merchandise supply is somewhat unpredictable; therefore all locations will not receive the same assortment of merchandise.  For this reason, it pays to check out as many of our *locations* as possible.

How often do your stores receive new merchandise?

Each store's inventory changes on a daily basis, with new merchandise arriving weekly.

Does Dirt Cheap Building Supplies sell merchandise online?

Unfortunately we are not able to sell merchandise online because of the unpredictable supply of our merchandise.  Our inventory changes rapidly, therefore it is not practical for us to sell merchandise online.

What is the Dirt Cheap Building Supplies return policy?

We will be happy to refund your money or exchange an item if you are unhappy with your purchase. All you have to do is return the item with receipt  to the Dirt Cheap Building Supplies store where the item was purchased within 30 days of the purchase date (for building supplies) or within seven days of the purchase date (for all other merchandise).

Can I buy a Dirt Cheap Building Supplies franchise?

Can I buy stock in Dirt Cheap Building Supplies? 

Dirt Cheap Building Supplies is not a publicly traded company.

What is salvage?

Salvage merchandise mostly consists of retail merchandise that has been claimed by an insurance company due to some form of natural disaster, whether it be fire, flood, or another form of damage to the store.  We then buy the merchandise and resell it in our stores.  Salvaged goods can also be considered liquidations, closeouts, business closings or overstocks. 

Doesn't salvage mean that it's just junk?

In the retail industry salvage can have various definitions, but most of the time it is defined by anything that has value left in a secondary market. Originating with the term salvage value - an accounting term - "salvage" can mean brand new, still in the box and surplus stocks or it can be an insurance claim. 

If it's unsellable in the beginning we simply dispose of it and move on.  Our creed governs our decisions and we are committed to selling desirable merchandise at an honest and extremely discounted price.  

Why would you carry smoky merchandise?

Our business model is built upon finding value where others cannot.  We pride ourselves in our resourceful and inventive strategies to create opportunities where others see none. In doing so, we are able to offer our customers valuable products at an incredible price.  We have a sales system in place to eliminate problem inventory as we quickly liquidate our merchandise to make room for new shipments.

Who We Are

First opening its doors in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Treasure Hunt has since grown into a local favorite throughout Mississippi.  Over the past 25 years our business has expanded, growing to be the largest buyer of insurance claims in the United States, while also adding other distressed situations such as manufacturer and retailer buybacks, closeouts, bankruptcies, overstocks, liquidations, customer returns and out of season goods.

In October 1997, we realized our Treasure Hunt warehouse shelves had become quite full of excess inventory.  In order to clean out our warehouse and make room for new merchandise, we decided to set up a sale in our Lumberton, Mississippi warehouse.  At the sale, all merchandise was sold at "dirt cheap" prices until gone, and the Dirt Cheap concept was born.  As business progressed, the amount of inventory only grew, establishing a need for more than just a warehouse sale.

The first Dirt Cheap store opened in 1998, in Petal, Mississippi, and has since grown into 54 stores and counting.  Today, Dirt Cheap is a standalone company purchasing its own merchandise and exhibiting its own unique selling strategies.

More stores, more inventory, and still not enough space!  In 2006, we created a Wholesale Division, selling the excess inventory our stores simply cannot handle.  The majority of our wholesale goods are clothing, footwear and accessories.  These items are sold and shipped to more than a dozen countries, including Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean Islands.

In late 2009, Treasure Hunt and Dirt Cheap buyers were approached by a ceramic tile manufacturer filing for bankruptcy.  After purchasing 50 truckloads of ceramic tile and with nowhere to put it, Dirt Cheap Building Supplies opened its doors for the first time on January 1, 2010.  Met by great response, our buyers began purchasing an assortment of building supplies from other distressed situations.  Ranging anywhere from flooring to moulding to light fixtures,  you'll find Dirt Cheap Building Supplies in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Pensacola, Florida.

What's next you ask?  Well, who knows?  But one thing is for sure... Whatever we do, we will always offer extreme savings to you, our valued customers.
