Foremost is a mixed bag. Some items are bargains, some are atrociously overpriced. I recently bought a Meade fully automatic telescope there for about $600. Meade's price is about $1500. On the other hand, when I asked for a special price on four wine glasses - one of which was broken, the help there quoted me a price higher than what four good glasses would have cost. The place is staffed by helpful people, not mathematicians. Cruising the store will disclose other similar pricing anomalies. There is no substitute for knowing what an item should cost before making a purchase.

This is company that I would Not recomend doing bussiness with.
They are known for selling stolen , lost and damanaged goods.I recently purchased an Item from Foremost sales in Richmond VA,after a few days the police tryied to arrest me for having slolen goods.UPS Freight the owner of Foremost Sales Inc, must have taken this material from a bussiness's loading dock, then tried to sale it in their Industrial sales division.After a couple of hours in handcuffs, I was relieced, .This just goes to show you what type of company there running.
All of the OS&D managers and employes at the main office and at Formost sales need to be replaced. Very Unprofessional Group. Glad to say I no longer have Stock in this company.
So Be very carefull with this company,. 10-4.

I have shopped Foremost Sales for years and see changes, some great some not so great. One is the location, 100% better than the old store. The employees are helpful and friendly if you have questions. The prices are great on most things. You need to know prices but generally they are deeply discounted. There ARE bargains to be found. Recently I bought unopened Arches watercolor sheets for $7.00 each, bought over $200 worth of paper for about $28. BUT you have to go many many weeks and months to find something you need and want because the merchandise is odd lots for sure!

Im am in town for the holidays and just head about this store. I checked it out online and this is the first site found by google. I tend to take all online reviews with a grain of salt mostly because people usually only write them as a way to vent because they feel like they got taken or similar. That said here is what i found and my opinion of the other 4 comments.

First, I am unaware of this store prior to its current state in Dec 2010.
Second, I read several places the store was originaly an outlet for 'Overnight Freight' an LTL (less than truck load) carrier. Overnight Freight was purchased by UPS a while back. Why am i telling you this? Well, it explains the 'its gone down hill' comments. Folks who ship LTL dont pay for as much insurance on shiped goods moslty because its coming from the manufacturer who only has to recoupe the cost to make the item, therefore when Overnight ran the store they were not trying to recoupe as much money. WIth UPS at the reins, they are carrying a lot more consumer goods etc and also there customers are more likely to buy the insurance as UPS does alot of logistics for big name retail including an autoparts store for a period (they no longer do).

For the good part, today I got lucky, I aquired three metal storage cabinets, large, that together retail for over a grand, with a special after christmas 70% off furniture and christmas items I paid about $300. The price Foremost was originaly asking would still have been a good deal at less than 50% of the MSRP. I also considered a couple of other items, a nice Armstrong (Made in the US) tool that retails for close to $200 that thery were asking $125 for. WIth the dailey discount of 35% this would not have been a bad buy.

My final thoughts, if your not willing to pay for things then you either dont know what your buying or dont need it. To that end Foremost sells damaged or refused freight either check that all the parts are there or decide if you can ldo wth out those peices. Nothing is free, but your likely to save a considerble amount at Foremost.

Tthe store continues to go downhill. Originally it was a way for Overnite Trucking to get rid of rejected shipments and damaged freight and recoup some of their insurance claims. That's why they called it the Foremost Salvage Barn. Now it seems they are trying to get rich from it and the name was changed to Foremost SALES. They take 30% off the price of an item (where they get the original price I don't know) and then throw in an additional 20 -30% discount. Sounds great right? Let's take for example a gas grill. Maybe it's $500 at WalMart but they look on the Web and find a Outdoor supply store selling it for $699. Now discount it 30% to $489.00. And since they are so benevolent, they are going to take an additional 25% off. So you can buy it for only $367.00. Great deal!!! Now you get it home and it's missing parts, now you have yourself a $367 boat anchor because there are no returns on anything other than electronis and clothes (3 days) and forget any kind of warranty. Customer service is out the window. forget about being greeted with a smile, can I help you with that or even a thank you. A very few may try to offer some assistance but for the most part you are greeted with clerks texting on their phones and I don't knows.
I still shop there because sometimes they use a reasonable price to start with and you can get a decent deal. However, when you see people using cell phones and computers to check the prices, you better know the real cost of what you're buying.

Foremost has moved down the street to the old Burlington Coat and has changed. A lot of the cheap junkie stuff is gone, a lot of the tools and industrial stuff seems to be gone, and there is no food, in its place, a lot of overpriced high end stuff, like North Face goretex coats for $160. Not exactly why I go there. But again, they had a two pack of Calphalon frying pans ($49 @ Amazon) for $29. And a Samsung Blu-ray internal drive for a PC for $48.

So perhaps this is transitional, they may have just flushed their old inventory (I wonder who buys out of dates from a place like Foremost?)

I found out about Foremost Sales when I worked for Overnite Transportation. They sell damaged, and mostly not damaged refused shipments. You can really find some great deals if you have the time to walk the big store. They are located across from Cloverleaf Mall. They have different percentages off, in addition to the already low prices on different days. They have a little bit of everything. Take the time to check it out, you won't be disappointed.

PROS: Prices
CONS: Location
