Shopping locally takes on a new meaning at iDealz, where items from popular stores are offered at lower prices. Similar in concept to Marshalls, the store provides anything from home dcor items and groceries to vintage items and jewelry.

The items obtained by iDealz are not consignment items, but rather items that have been returned or contain slight imperfections and cannot be sold by the big name stores. Comforter sets, clocks, purses and more line the walls and shelves of iDealz offering the latest styles. Carrying a various assortment of everything, iDealz is able to shorten any Christmas list without breaking the bank.

The store has become well known for their clock wall due to the high volume and range of styles they are able to offer. Ranging in size, style, and shape there is sure to be something to fit the dcor of any home.

Beyond the clock wall, there are various wall hanging items that will spice up any room in your home. Chalk boards of different styles and shapes are sprinkled throughout the establishment. Other more unique items can be found sprinkled throughout the store. One particular piece contains enlarged numbers and letters in a square formation and is reminiscent of a drawer in a letterpress printing shop.

Buying jewelry can often be frustrating and expensive, but at iDealz, the prices are reasonable and the products are made of good quality materials. Button earrings are predominately displayed on a swivel stand and in a decorative bowl. Available in various colors and patterns the earrings are a perfect gift for any fun loving, earring wearing person on your list.

Created due to popular demand a vintage line of home dcor takes up the full length of the building. Sometimes the latest trends do not complement the theme of a home or the liking of its owner. Other times the vintage items offered by mainstream stores look brand new. The vintage items found at iDealz express the vintage feel through their distressed surfaces or overall design.

Within the vintage section of iDealz customers are sure to find common items as well as a bit of the unusual. Various tables and chairs delight the eye with possibilities for home makeovers. Accents such as candle sticks or decorative boxes are interspersed throughout the room inviting a method of personalization that may not have been initially apparent.

Repeat, local customers keep iDealz in business and spur the addition or subtraction of items from the inventory. When a bent and dent store down the road went out of business patrons couldn't purchase discounted groceries anymore and asked iDealz if they would stock grocery items. Always trying to cater to their customers, iDealz values their opinions and modifies their inventory to echo the needs of the community.

Rising in popularity all throughout the country is the sale of grocery items past their marked expiration date. Whole shops are rising up that strictly carry items the grocery stores are no longer able to sell, because of the government regulated expiration date. Many of these items are still safe for consumption, but the grocery stores are not allowed to sell the items directly to consumers so they are being sold to retailers similar to iDealz. Completely legal and safe to consume, the items can then be sold at a lower price.

When iDealz first began carrying groceries, it only took up the back corner of the store. The section has since grown to encompass roughly a third of the room. New groceries are brought in bi-weekly or when particular items are running low.

Idealz offers home dcor, vintage, grocery, jewelry and so much more. A single visit will not satisfy the curiosity, with new items being brought in regularly there is always something new to be discovered.

Idealz is located across from the cuckoo clock at 100 W. Main Street, Sugarcreek, Ohio 44681. For more information call 330-852-6111.
