Buy Someone Else’s Lost Ski Gear…Cheap

Scottsboro, AL – Alabama may not be the first state to come to mind for purchasing ski gear and apparel, but Scottsboro is home to a gigantic clearinghouse of lost luggage.

To get the first look at top winter and ski equipment from brands including The North Face, Columbia, REI, Arc’teryx, Marmot, Burton, Nordica, K2 and Rossignol, shoppers will start lining up the night before Unclaimed Baggage Center’s 35th annual Winter and Ski Event. Doors will open on Nov. 5 at 8 a.m. CST for the sale featuring thousands of items that are held specifically for this exclusive event and have not been previously been displayed on the store floor.

“I believe every passenger brings along two jackets and inevitably leaves one behind — and it ends up here! This year’s sale will have the largest selection we have ever had of outerwear,” said Brenda Cantrell, Unclaimed Baggage Center’s brand ambassador. “This is one of the best events of the year at Unclaimed Baggage Center and it draws shoppers from around the country. People passionate about winter sports, winter-wear or just good cold-weather deals will love to take part in this event.”
