Total Liquidators will open its new location at the old Walmart today (Wednesday) as part of a “soft launch” store officials announced Tuesday.
A statement posted to the big box retail outlets Facebook page reads:
The 118,000 square foot space, located in the Bristol Park Shopping Center was recently occupied by the Bristol Indoor Flea Market which rented the space on a short term lease late last year. The flea market was eventually forced to move outdoors due to COVID-19.
In August the flea market announced it’s lease of the large building would be ending and the flea market would continue outdoors until at least November 1.
Walmart closed the site in November of 2017 and the space remained dormant until the flea market rented the space, quickly becoming a popular go- to shopping spot with about 250 vendors on hand.
Total Liquidators is branded as a discounted retail outlet All items are sold “As is, Where Is”. Our items are a combination of damaged boxes, open box items, and new items, according to its website.
Over the last six weeks or so, customers of the shopping center said they noticed increased activity at the location with tractor trailers unloading merchandise daily.
Sal’s Italian Deli will continue to offer good eats offering sandwiches, hoagies, pizza, snacks, drink, deserts and much more.
Brixmor which operates leasing for the shopping center, recently rented a empty space at 208 Commerce Circle to Family Dollar. A string of thrift shops operated in the space prior but its been empty since 2018. Sources with knowledge of the deal told the publication in recent days the retailer expects to open around November 13.
The discount everything retailer held a round hiring events for the Bristol location late last month. The site is currently under renovations in preparation for its eventual opening.
As of Monday there are currently four spaces available to rent within the confines of the shopping center that Brixmor oversees.
