There’s a 40,000 square-foot thrift store located in Alabama because so many people leave their luggage behind at the airport.
The ‘Unclaimed Baggage Center’ is a collection of luggage from every state including over 40 foreign countries. People from all over travel to Alabama just for the famous thrift store with over one million people visiting each year.
After 90 days most airports donate the contents to charity sell it at auction or sell it to the Unclaimed Baggage Center.
They receive more than 7,000 new items a day.
