Grand reopening means more bargains at bigger, better Last Chance Overstock Last Chance Overstock, a unique retail store in Schererville, offers deep discounts on clothing, furniture, food, seasonal items and more.This popular store will soon be expanding by 10,000 square feet. A grand reopening planned for May is expected to delight customers with a larger variety of brand-name products from the overstock of big box stores and the closeouts of national brands.There’s also a variety of affordable goods from discount wholesalers. “When customers walk into the store, they often expect another off-brand discount store.They’re surprised to see we offer so much more than that. It’s a new shopping adventure every week, since we don’t know what suppliers will send in the next truckload,” says owner Jim Prisby. The store opened in 2014 in a space formerly occupied by Menards. It’s continued to be a big draw. “A common theme from our customers is ‘It’s my favorite store, I love going there.’ Our customers are very loyal and word of mouth draws more people in,” says store manager Kathy Perry, who has 25 years or retail experience. Local resident and CEO Bob Ehler agrees.“The experience is addictive for some.We’ll see customers two or three times a week because they know there’ll always be something new that’s come in.” Another plus: Last Chance Overstock has a 30-day money-back guarantee on most merchandise. It’s not a club store, either.There’s the convenience of a club store – but there’s never a membership fee. In 2016 the store expanded to 20,000 square feet from its original 10,000, increasing sales, warehouse and processing space.“From the very beginning, our strategy has been to differentiate ourselves from most big box stores and discount outlets by keeping our shelves as fully stocked as possible. Combining that with brand-name quality products, we strive to always provide our customers a positive shopping experience,” says Ehler. Family members who are buyers for the store are consulted continually for valuable advice that keeps the shopping experience exciting. The store specializes in overstock, shelf-pulls, open-box and customer returns, and prices are usually well below retail.There is also slightly damaged merchandise that offers additional discounts on brand-name goods.After inspection, certain items are put on clearance with even bigger markdowns on furniture, toys, men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, watches, home goods, bedding, grills, food, seasonal items and more.The grand reopening this month will be a perfect time to browse for spring and summer home and patio décor – everything to make the pleasant months ahead even more enjoyable and easy on the budget. “Being family-owned and operated allows us to concentrate on hiring quality people so we can always provide a prompt, friendly experience that can’t be matched by typical chain store operations.We are also really excited about the opportunities this latest expansion will afford our staff.We truly have some quality people working at LCO,” says Ehler. “From infant to adult, our inventory changes daily. Size, color or style will vary from day to day, but the savings are constant,” says Ehler.
