First opening its doors in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Treasure Hunt has since grown into a local favorite throughout Mississippi. Over the past 25 years our business has expanded, growing to be the largest buyer of insurance claims in the United States, while also adding other distressed situations such as manufacturer and retailer buybacks, closeouts, bankruptcies, overstocks, liquidations, customer returns and out of season goods.
In October 1997, we realized our Treasure Hunt warehouse shelves had become quite full of excess inventory. In order to clean out our warehouse and make room for new merchandise, we decided to set up a sale in our Lumberton, Mississippi warehouse. At the sale, all merchandise was sold at "dirt cheap" prices until gone, and the Dirt Cheap concept was born. As business progressed, the amount of inventory only grew, establishing a need for more than just a warehouse sale. The first Dirt Cheap store opened in 1998, in Petal, Mississippi, and has since grown into 85 stores and counting. Today, Dirt Cheap is a standalone company purchasing its own merchandise and exhibiting its own unique selling strategies.

Why are our prices so low?
We're called an extreme value retailer because we offer our products cheaper than any competitor.
Here's how we do it:
- We purchase liquidations, customer returns, overstocks, out of season goods, bankruptcies and closeouts from manufacturers, distributors and other retailers.
- We help these suppliers turn their inventories into cash.
- We purchase in volume to get even greater discounts.
- This allows us to pass the savings on to you.

Because our inventory changes weekly, there's always a great variety of merchandise to choose from. Whatever is in stock, you can be certain that it will always be at an extreme value. It's safe to say you'll find leading private label and brand name clothing, housewares and other general merchandise.
