Plan to spend time to look through the inventory. There are some treasures if you have the time to find them.

I clicked on this survey and it only had a NO option. So, I don't know what happened but my recommendation is YES, I would recommend to friends. A great store....just remember to go with a friend so you can laugh together!

Be ready for an experience and probably do not go with anything in particular that you want to find. Don't wear your Sunday-go-to-meeting duds!

It's fun to find odds and ends and even gems! My kids love it and they can each walk out with a treasure for under $1!

They didn't want to honor my expired Groupon for the amount that I paid for it. With persistence, they finally acquiesced.

Only go to Ax-Man if you need a cleansing experience for your soul. It's like a visit to everyone's weird uncle's house, complete with grenades and Patrick Duffy references.

This store has a vast inventory of strange odds and ends as well as some base inventory that remains fairly constant. If you haven't been before, it helps if you're the type that can look at an item and figure if you may have a use for it. Lots of electrical components, hardware bits and pieces, etc. I enjoy shopping there because it really gets the creative juices flowing.

From Our Editors

Googly eyes. Gas masks. Mannequin arms. Blowguns. Ax-Man Surplus Stores dares crafters, DIY enthusiasts, and tinkerers of all stripes to dream bigger, better, and weirder with an enormous stock of new surplus items. Each shop's collection of oddities and odds-and-ends resides in open-air barrels and on easily browseable shelves. Bins entice shoppers to rummage through metal bits in search of the next piece to a welded sculpture, and other aisles hold several decades? worth of electronic wiring, fans, speakers, and fuses, perfect for building a robot that every generation can relate to. Frequent shoppers are rewarded with a new truckload of treasures every week, along with an ever-changing collection of signs that artistically warn of the hazards of shoplifting and suggest off-label uses for the merchandise.
