An Update on Cincinnati’s Bargains & Buyouts

By | Cincinnati Finds | 31 Comments

Today’s post is for my local Cincinnati/Tri-State people! Or maybe you get so excited about this place, you’ll decide it’s worth the drive. 🙂

It’s been over a year since I shared the Cincinnati bargain furniture warehouse—Bargains & Buyouts—as the ultimate deal source for everything home. A lot has happened since that post. So many of you have gone there and scored major deals. Word has spread (of which I was only a minor contributor) and it’s become an attraction for people traveling to the area. The place itself has gone through major changes. It went from 1 location, to 2 locations back to 1 location, but in a different place. The owners have not been great about communicating its new whereabouts and location changes, but I’ve figured it all out and I have an unofficial update for you.

Welcome to the new Bargains & Buyouts.

Bargains & Buyouts

And it’s HUGE (this shot is only half of the store).
Bargains & Buyouts

The ONE and only address is:
5150 Glencrossing Way
Cincinnati, Ohio 45238

Hours of operation:
Monday – Saturday 10 am – 8 pm EST
Sunday 12 pm – 6 pm EST

Credit cards and cash are welcome forms of payment

Bargaining is also welcome, but I didn’t perceive it to be as good as before. You’ll have much better luck on getting a negotiated price if you bundle multiple items together.

The store now is much more shoppable—they are aisles for walking, most everything is priced and there are somewhat clear “departments.” You can expect to find here your basic home furnishing needs: bedframes, headboards, bedroom sets, sofas, lighting, accent chairs, ottomans, coffee tables, rugs, outdoor furniture and more.

Now, I will say (as far as I can tell) that the prices are a little higher. I’m guessing their overhead as increased significantly (nicer store, lots more employees) but yes, you will still get amazing deals on quality pieces here. I went about a week ago and thought I would share some of the highlights.

These campaign-ish x-side tables were $50 each at the time. These also came in other colors.

Tabouret-style dining stools and chairs were just $15 a piece.

This bentwood chair was $99. If there was a pair, they would have come home with me.

So, SO many round tufted ottomans. Like this one for $149…

Bargains & Buyouts

And this one for $250 (although I would have pointed out that the same model in the darker gray was just $150, in hopes for a bargain).

Bargains & Buyouts

There are no words for this wood/brass coffee table. NO WORDS. $150.

Bargains & Buyouts

Accent chairs as far as the eye can see. These ranged from $150 – $300.

Bargains & Buyouts

I was crushing on the color of this settee for $278. I’m convinced camel/cognac tones are the new gray.

Bargains & Buyouts

This cage light caught my eye too. I think it was $100.

Bargains & Buyouts

Lots and lots of ottomans. I liked this black and white one a lot. A price wasn’t marked but I’m guessing somewhere in the $150 range.

I loved the shape of these counter stools at $75 each.

And of course they taunt you with this as soon as you arrive. This is an actual Jonathan Adler sofa (NOT the JCPenney Happy Chic line). Price was $1499, which isn’t too shabby considering the retail price is nearly $5,000. I’m guessing it’s an older version of the Lampert sofa.

So that’s the new Bargains & Buyouts. With a new house to furnish, you can expect to find me here every weekend. 🙂

Let me know if you go!
