Pop Up Shopping Tips


Visa or MasterCard with Photo ID ($10 minimum) or Cash!

Be Green!

We no longer supply plastic bags at check-out. Bring your own recyclable or buy a 3BF Green bag & join the "Be Green" Shopper Club, which comes with early entry! $5 per bag and they're HUGE!


Flexible List

Think ahead 6 months. What gifts, clothes, toys, gear will you need? Plan ahead to SAVE

Timing Trick

For BEST selection & one-of-a-kind deals, use EARLY ACCESS! When you shop determines what you find! BEST OPTION: consign!


Pen Trick

DON'T MISS OUT bc you don't have a pen! Some deals GO FAST. You'll need a pen to fill out Claim Ticket info on those large, in-demand items that are too big to carry.

String Trick

Bring a piece of string (one set of colors for each kid) that are the length of their inseam, and the circumference of their waist. Helps you know if it’ll fit!


Tracing Trick

Trace your child’s foot on a piece of cardboard. If it fits in the shoe, it’ll fit your kid!

Phone Trick

Do a quick pricing or product search to know what you're saving!

Adult Time?

Thurs-Sat kids are welcome! But, you'll enjoy shopping more when you're kid free!

Bring a Friend!

Grab a shopping buddy and have a fun night out!
