Who We Are

First opening its doors in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, Treasure Hunt has since grown into 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. News on great deals spreads far - and we've just opened our first Canadian store in Brampton, Ontario!

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 54 stores and counting.  Today, Dirt Cheap is a standalone company purchasing its own merchandise and exhibiting its own unique selling strategies.

In late 2009, Treasure Hunt and Dirt Cheap buyers were approached by a ceramic tile manufacturer filing for bankruptcy.  After purchasing 50 truckloads of ceramic tile and with nowhere to put it, Dirt Cheap Building Supplies opened its doors for the first time on January 1, 2010.  Met by great response, our buyers began purchasing an assortment of building supplies from other distressed situations.  Ranging anywhere from flooring to moulding to light fixtures,  you'll find Dirt Cheap Building Supplies in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Pensacola, Florida.
