Now open: King County surplus ‘pop-up’ shop

Always wanted to call dibs on King County surplus items but couldn’t find an hour or two out of the office to do so?

Don’t fret. This week, the King County Surplus Program opened a new “Pop-Up” shop intended to help County employees who work in and around the Seattle Core claim surplus items.

The shop is located at on the second floor of the 420 4th Ave. building, across from the Administration Building. The entrance is located off Jefferson Street. 

This week, the shop will be open from 10 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Aug. 24.  

This shop is intended to eliminate the inconvenience of traveling to and from the Surplus Program’s warehouse at 717 S Orcas Street. It will be stocked with office supplies and equipment, available for King County employees to have for work use within King County or to improve their work spaces. All items are free of charge.

It will help reduce the amount of surplus material going unused in King County and make disposing of items in the landfill a last resort.
