With a wide variety of merchandise, an enormous antique warehouse has been operating for three years on XY Avenue two miles south of Schoolcraft east of US-131.
“New estates are brought in weekly and there are always new things coming into this store,” said Lexi Gunderson. She manages the warehouse store of Your Estate Outlet for Jason Hadley, who owns and operates the warehouse and a full-service estate sale business. It’s a family run business, with almost everyone working in the business somehow related to Hadley. Gunderson is his niece.
Hadley also offers “move out” services, where he will help clear an estate out of a person’s home. He purchases the entire estate from the owner looking to liquidate their items. He moves everything into his warehouse and offers the items for sale to the public. He manages approximately two estates weekly, providing new merchandise in the antique warehouse every week.
There are eleven different rooms in the warehouse, each with a theme: Vintage Toy Room, Electronics/Media, Paper Memorabilia, Kitchen, Apparel, Children’s (including toys, clothing and games), Linens, Antiques, Crafts, Home Decor and Tools. Each week, a special deal is offered in one of the rooms; one week might provide 30 percent off the Vintage Toy Room. A larger warehouse area has kitchen appliances, a holiday loft, sports gear, and lighting.
Anyone looking to liquidate an estate can contact Jason Hadley at 269-207-5827. The Antique warehouse is open Thursday through Sunday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. It is located at 15401 Industrial Drive off XY east of US-131.
