I've gotten some spectacular deals at discount stores that I think would be categorized as "salvage" stores--they obtain their inventory through insurance sales, auctions, etc. Here're some examples of the deals: At Marden's in Bangor, ME I bought a brand new Combi Savvy-Z stroller for $30. At C-Mart in Forest Hills, MD I bought a brand new (still in the box!) Britax Roundabout car seat for $80. It's certainly hard to plan to shop at such places since their inventory is hard to predict, but many know with some advanced notice what they'll be selling in the coming months if you ask. I think folks ought to be aware that such places exist.
