Residents of Beaufort may have noticed a lot of activity at the former 84 Lumber building on Hwy U.S. 21 and Parker drive, near the drive-in theater.
Beaufort Liquidation’s owners, Jeff and Kathy Lowe, purchased the 12-acre property that will house their new store and wholesale outlet, scheduled to open Memorial weekend.
In addition to the retail outlet, bargain shoppers can also explore the new 200 vendor Lowcountry Flea Market, open Saturdays and Sundays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine.
Jeff Lowe says the interesting twist that makes this Flea Market unique is their gigantic warehouse full of bulk merchandise from America’s largest retailers. If you don’t have anything to sell at a flea market, don’t worry, we can provide you with clean merchandise at huge discounts and deliver it to your vendor table. It doesn’t get much easier to start your own business.
The flea market also features a full menu concession area, and all the vendor tables are under roof, no rain or pounding sun to contend with. As the clientele builds, Lowe said he will start to bring in live music acts, consisting of local and nationally recognized bands.
The Lowe’s are wagering that the filming of their new reality TV show will soon generate enough interest to sell out all the vendor spaces. The show will center on the high stakes risks and rewards of the Lowe’s family business.
With the return of the Hollywood cameras, comes the return of the huge Beaufort Liquidation auctions that ignited the concept of the TV show. Last October as many as 20 truckloads of product were auctioned off in a four hour period as cameras rolled.
