Greetings and thanks for taking the time to check out my website. The website is work in progress. It is always fun finding new and exciting products to sell so it will never be finished. I continue to add new items weekly.
I grew up in Southern California. I managed a large surplus store in San Pedro called Union War Surplus for almost 20 years. The owner decided to close the store after being open for 65 years. Once you work at a surplus store it’s in your blood it’s hard to do anything else. After the store closed I decided to open my own store and create the website to continue with what I know best and love doing.
Being in the business for so long I have developed relationships with many different companies and people in the business. What’s great about the surplus store business is one moment I can be seeing the latest work boots coming for next season, then see the latest Knives, then help a customer build his military ribbon and medal display. It’s different everyday.
Having connections with different companies made it easy to get started. I opened accounts that had the best products and I had great relationships with in the past. These included Dickies, Wolverine Footwear, Ben Davis, Carhartt, Benchmade knife Company and many smaller companies that carry interesting items. If someone is looking for an item I usually know where to find it. If I can’t get it, I can probably tell the customer where to find it.
The website and store have been open about 4 years. I am always expanding and adding new items. It’s never a dull moment around here. The best part of having my own store is that I can bring my dog Hank to work with me. Hank loves greeting the customers and the customers love him.
My goal is to give the best service possible and carry items at the best possible prices. I am a small company that is growing but I will never stop giving the personal service that each customer deserves.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my website.
