Frequently Asked Questions
Whether you’re consigning or treasure hunting, it’s fun and easy with Shop Around the Corner. Check out our most frequently asked questions below, and be sure to check out our Consign page to learn more about the process and what to expect when you consign with us.
A: We can fit a lot of things in our space, and we do! Our shop is filled to the brim with hundreds of thousands of items, including gently used clothes separated by size, furniture in working order, home decor, household items, and more. At the top of the list for reasons to visit is that there’s something for everyone, no matter your unique sense of style or taste.
Q: Do you have any brand new items?
A: We have new overstock items at deep discounts from big-box retailers. We also offer new mattresses, adjustable beds, and new furniture with warranties. Our new furniture and mattresses are primarily from Best Mfg, a family-owned, American manufacturer that creates durable, high-quality products at an affordable price. We’re also proud to offer Therapedic mattresses, which are at the intersection of comfort and support.
Q: What makes Shop Around the Corner special?
A: So many things! But above all, we pride ourselves on quality and value. They’re cornerstones of our shopping experience, and we don’t offer one without the other.
Q: What is a BAB?
A: Our Big Assorted Boxes (BAB) are like grab bags, but more fun. It’s a box of items that might not sell separately all packaged together and sold at a great price. At least one item in the box is worth the value of the box, so you won’t be disappointed when you choose to grab a BAB.
Q: Is Shop Around the Corner a not-for-profit?
A: No. We pay consignors for their items after they sell. We are proud to support the community with our business, which has been part of the ministry of the Christian owners all along.
A: We love to provide live music, and while we don’t have a fixed schedule, we tend to have musicians perform on Saturdays and/or Sundays from about 11 to 4 PM. Among our regular performers are Mark Nast, who sings and plays folk rock from the ‘60s and ‘70s, including James Taylor, Dan Fogelberg, Jimmy Buffet, Van Morrisson, and others. We also host church groups, karaoke artists, blues musicians, and more.
Q: Washington, MO is kind of a long drive. Is there anything else to do there?
A: We’re glad you asked! Check out our Explore Washington page for just a few of our favorite things, from shopping to dining and recreation. Like our store, Washington has something to offer everyone.
