Take a look at what we think you should know about HOBO!
1. it's all in the family
HOBO is a family-owned company that opened its doors in 1996. After fifteen years, every member of the family is still involved and dedicated to getting you that great deal! We want you to walk out of our stores with a satisfied feeling because you know that you saved a lot of money. Our first location was in West Allis, Wisconsin. Gradually, HOBO has expanded to six locations, including Milwaukee, Waukegan, Joliet, Villa Park, and Oak Lawn.
2. HOBO has the best customers
We are grateful for all of the wonderful emails and letters complimenting our teammates for their customer service. We also appreciate the photos you have sent of deals in your home that you found at HOBO. In addition, our favorite photos are from your before and after kitchen or bath renovations. Wow! We really appreciate it every time you spread the word to your friends and family by recommending our store to them.
3. who shops at HOBO?
Well, just about everyone is a “typical” HOBO customer. Many of our shoppers are DIYers looking to save bundles of money on items they use everyday and for remodeling projects they are working on. You also will see many competitors in our aisles scratching their heads wondering how we can offer such great name brand deals at rock bottom prices.
4. we are not pulling your leg
We want to warn you ahead of time. Shopping at HOBO can become addictive! Since many of our deals go fast, we encourage you to buy it when you see it or it may be gone before you come back. Many items are one-time purchases from far-away countries (seriously!). This is why our teammates may encourage you to measure and count correctly so that you have everything you need to complete your project the first time
5. why we don't sell online
At this time, HOBO does not sell products online. Many of our deals sell out so quickly that we don’t have the time to list them online. Right now, we just want to focus on great customer service and offering great buys for our retail locations so that you can shop with confidence.
