On September 4, Cheri Mortenson and Jordan Torrence opened the doors to Treasure’s Discount Market for the first time.
“With the economy being the way it is, Jordan and I thought it would be a great idea to open a place like this.” Cheri said. “We both think it’s a necessary thing.”
Their new business rotates through a broad range of products at discounted prices, allowing customers to find things that aren’t normally available in Aberdeen. While they primarily focus on food and beverage, customers can also find paper towels, cleaners, detergents, and other kitchen supplies.
“We have no idea what’s on the truck before we get it,” Cheri said. “That’s part of what makes it unique. Something we have today might not show up again later.”
Everything in Treasure’s Discount Market is priced well under retail, sometimes as much as 60% off. A majority of their products are well within their shelf dates and are always of good quality. Each month, they will receive about three major shipments.
“Some people have told us we have products they haven’t seen in years,” Cheri said. “We’ve even had some customers buy our entire stock of a product they really like.”
Treasure’s Discount Market is located at 311 South Roosevelt St. Their hours are 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM Monday through Friday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday, and 11:00 AM to 4:00 on Sunday. //—Annie Scott
