From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — A popular unclaimed freight store has moved from Springville to Argo.
Shop Bob’s Unclaimed Freight was previously located on Marietta Road, in Springville. It is now at 1947 Gadsden Highway. The business has a Trussville address but is in the city limits of Argo.
Shop Bob’s is a family-owned and operated variety store that carries a unique collection of items that were lost in shipping. Those items include home goods, electronics, small kitchen appliances, collectibles, antiques, fragrances and jewelry. With the larger space, the owner said they will now be able to offer more, such as clothing, shoes, outdoor living items.
Bob Ping, his son, Christopher Spivey, and Bob’s son-in-law, Alan Callahan, opened the store two years ago after selling similar items online.
“We outgrew that other location almost the day we opened, so we’re really excited about the new location,” Ping said.
Shop Bob’s will also now have shopping carts.
The store’s stock changes frequently and daily deals are offered. The store is bringing back the $5 bag deal, where you fill a bag with items from a certain group and only pay $5 for everything in it.
Ping is now preparing to open the new location and hopes to open his doors by Sept. 3.
The store will be open Tuesday – Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
