An American store in Alabama has specialised in the recovery of unclaimed baggage and selling the contents.  

In Alabama, a shop sells unclaimed baggage

In the USA, the law concerning unclaimed baggage in airports is simple: passengers have 120 days to reclaim their goods, otherwise they no longer belong to them.

In 1970, an American had the original idea of purchasing unclaimed baggage at a low price in airports across the country and then selling them in a shop.

Located in Alabama, in the south of the States, the shop has gradually grown and is now 4,600m2 as of 2016.

Everything is meticulously stocked in the aisles: luggage, underwear, toiletries, headphones, Smartphones and a wide range of other goods. The prices are very reasonable given that they range from a 20% to 80% discount on the initial price.

A sign that business is going well is that the store keeps growing. It has even become a tourist attraction which welcomes more than a million visitors each year. The founder is now helped by a huge number of assistants who scour airports around the country to get a good deal.
