At Bargain Bill’s, we never forget that our customers
are the reason we are here!
Bargain Bill opened the doors of a small store in downtown Rice Lake, Wisconsin, stocked with an array of closeouts and liquidations. We struggled through the first years becoming a popular place to browse and save on ‘just about everything’. Most folks stopped in out of curiosity, liked what they found, and then told their friends.
We were bursting at our seams! In a daring venture, Bargain Bill built a 20,000 square foot Main Store on the North West edge of Rice Lake. With only a handful of employees, the expanded enterprise worked hard to make things go. Truckloads of just about everything arrived at our doors, including wedding dresses and authentic Mexican pottery!
Our customers began to ask for craft items, so we added a Art, Craft and Decor Store to our mix. This store carried just about everything from rubber stamps and paper punches to artist canvas and collectible figurines, not to mention the most beautiful silk floral around!
When summer visitors arrived, they wanted flowers, so the greenhouse came to be. Our Greenhouse continues to be open late April until Mid June, and has the reputation of having the best quality plants and most knowledgable sales staff around.
This same year, Bargain Bill met up with a representative from a major carpet mill, who suggested putting some carpet rems in the store, just to see how they’d sell. Always ready for a new adventure, Bargain Bill gave it a try.
The remnants sold well enough for Bargain Bill to open a 7,800 square foot store next to the Main Store to sell floor coverings – the creation of the the original Floor Store.
The original Floor Store had outgrown it’s building, so they expanded into a bigger and better building of their own. Not only carpet and vinyl was sold, but also tile, wood, laminate and area rugs! This store grew to become this area’s largest in-stock selection of everything flooring!
Bargain Bill was ready to try something new. He traveled and talked, debated and wondered, and finally decided to try selling furniture. By the following spring, Yabba Furniture was born. They took a seat right next to the Floor Store! And if you’re wondering what the heck “Yabba” means, you are not alone! It means quite simply ‘Yet Another Bargain Bill Adventure!”
We feel truly blessed to have grown to such extent over our past 30 years of being in business, and have only you, our wonderful customer, to thank! We continue to travel the country to find good deals and unique items to bring back to you. Please stop in and say hello when you are near. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
