✈Worldwide Wednesdays: The Unclaimed Baggage Center
Over one million items pass through the store annually. About 60% of the merchandise is clothing with the balance of the store dedicated to cameras, electronics, sporting goods, jewelry, designer optical, books and of course, luggage. The vast majority of items are from unclaimed baggage which, after at least 90 days of intensive tracking by the airlines, are declared unclaimed. However, unclaimed cargo is also available throughout the store.
"Many of our guests come again and again," according to Bryan Owens. "But whether people are visiting for the first time or are among the 'regulars' who drop by frequently, everyone enjoys the sense of adventure in seeing what treasures they can find among the lost items on display in the store."
