I brought four teen girls and an 11 year old boy; I could not get them to leave. Brenda met us at the door, Chris and Sarah guided us through electronics. Is everybody in Alabama this nice?! Everyone found a "gem" to take home, and you cannot be unhappy with the prices. We ate at the cafe, my son said... More

We have been shoppers of Unclaimed Baggage Center for many years. Each time we go, we are always met by such a friendly and helpful staff throughout the entire store. We enjoy the treasure hunt and all of the wonderful goodies we find. There are times, we do not find anything. However, that's all part of the treasure hunt "mission".... More

I can't ever find things in my size at stores, but when I go here I get a larger selection at cheap name brand things! I have to say the staff is very polite!! Great greetings on entry. Nice atmosphere. This one short dark haired girl...I think her name was Devin?? checked me out and was very polite and helpful... More

Last weekend, I met my mother in Birmingham for a girls' weekend. Because we're both bargain hunters, we made the two hour drive to Scottsboro to check out the Unclaimed Baggage Center. Before I arrived in Birmingham, I called the Center to ask about the "Unprocessed Bag Experience," a demonstration in which a guest at the store gets to open... More

A very intriguing store, the variety of merchandise is unbelievable. I didn't know what to expect when we decided to visit the Unclaimed Baggage Store. I found it almost hard to believe some of the items available for sale. I expected to see clothing and wasn't disappointed, but it didn't stop there as they have electronics, sporting goods, cameras, etc.... More

I was en route from Chattanooga to Huntsville so went right through Scottsboro. Very attractive store, many helpful clerks. I found some nice clothes for men, but most were Medium or Large and I need XL. But then stock is always being added. Great place to shop.

This is a scam. The place is essentially a large outlet store. Sure, some of the items may have been unclaimed, but many are clearly large lots of items that are the same as you would find at an outlet mall or Big Lots. The electronics area seemed to be the most legit. Cameras, I-pads etc were good prices. The... More

Martin- yes, we are the only store in America that buys and sells unclaimed and lost baggage from the airlines- that represents about 75% of our store. The remaining items in our store, as indicated by our signs throughout the store in plain site, are unclaimed cargo and opportunity buys. So, no we are not a scam. As for luggage-... More

Unclaimed Baggage is a place where there is something for everyone. There is merchandise for the Men, Ladies, boys and girls. A nice area is available for a drink and some food. The TV's had the sports channels on. The winter ski clothes sale was going on the day we visited. That is an active attraction to witness! We had... More
