Unique retail concept where patrons dig through mystery bins announces opening date of first local store

Jack McLaughlin

A unique bin-based retail chain described as a “treasure hunt” is opening its first Columbus-area location next month.

According to a statement posted to the social accounts of Where Ya Bin, the concept will hold the grand opening of its new Dublin storefront on June 2 at 8 a.m.

The store, which is located at 6020 Sawmill Rd., will be the brand’s first in central Ohio.


As its name implies, Where Ya Bin operates by purchasing a variety of boxed goods—ranging from high-end appliances and even brand new bass guitars—to less sought-after items. 

Patrons pay by the item, with a maximum cost of $14 for each one, meaning the possibility of getting a true steal is always present. As the brand never takes stock of the items it purchases, it isn’t even aware of what will be in stock, which changes week to week. This makes the act of shopping at Where Ya Bin, which it describes as a “treasure hunt,” half of the fun.

Items begin at $14 every Friday, when the concept restocks its goods. The price per item drops every day until Thursday, when items cost 25 cents each.
