The name "The Dump" is a pun that references the store's inventory of overstock and resale items, the client base purportedly dumping the competitors, and the store's status as a low-cost bargain outlet with a first-come, first-serve approach. The store is marketed as a no-frills warehouse that offers low prices by cutting out extra services. The company specializes in selling brand name and high-end furnishings at a 40 to 80 percent discount. Generally, the stores are only open three days a week, and featured promotions are usually held on Friday mornings when new stock is available. In addition to overstock items, the store's inventory generally consists of showroom models, factory sellouts, unsold custom items and design prototypes.
