YPSILANTI, MI – For years, Walter Blake Knoblock purchased pallets of returned items and thrift store gems on YouTube to resell for profit.
Now this endeavor has brought him to network television.
On Aug. 4, “Extreme Unboxing” will debut on A&E, featuring people who make money from what Knoblock calls “reverse logistics.” The Ypsilanti native will appear on about % of the episodes of the season.
People on the show buy pallets of unsold retail stock, inventory lost by third-party fulfillment centers and returned items, Knoblock said. Buyers then try and flip what they find for profit.
Knoblock said he was discovered by the show’s creators through his YouTube channel, where he regularly uploads videos of himself reselling items he finds through thrift stores, return pallets and other sources.
Items he resells range from books to auto parts and thrift store treasures. His first dive into the reverse logistics world came about four years ago when he bought a box of “salvaged video games,” meaning they had scratches on them. Luckily for Knoblock, he had a machine that fix scratched discs, so he was able to make $6, from a $ box.
“It wasn’t that who I bought from was a really great supplier,” Knoblock said. “It just happened to be that way and that’s what kind of lured me in.”
While sometimes these pallets have manifests -- general descriptions that describes what is in the pallet -- Knoblock said these can be blind buys. The show’s trailer said people can end up buying items that are in poor or broken condition. This is something Knoblock tries to avoid by purchasing pallets of items in relatively new condition.
Once he has items, Knoblock resells them online or in local auctions.
The show was filmed between September and December of , before the novel coronavirus hit the United States, Knoblock said. Episodes will air back-to-back every week, with Knoblock’s first appearance in the second episode.
“I guess there’s a little bit of notoriety with being on a network television show, but I think I’m going to enjoy just seeing what everyone is doing and how the show is like a final product looks,” Knoblock said.

Greece couple cast in A&E reality show
Greece resident Bobby Follett doesn’t remember exactly when he first heard you could buy merchandise returned to online retailers and resell it at a discount for a profit. He thinks some friends may have mentioned it to him.
But he very clearly recalls a time several years ago when his partner, Salena Ozzimo, had a rough day waiting tables.
“She said she was sick of it,” said year-old Follett, longtime owner of landscaping business Ground FX.
They needed her income, but she wanted to spend more time with their children, Sloan, 3, and Bryce, 6.
Being an entrepreneur, Follett got on the internet, started casting around for possibilities and said he sort of stumbled onto a website auctioning returned merchandise — boxes of stuff, packaged as pallets, that people had bought and changed their minds about or couldn't be delivered.
After successfully bidding on some auctions, he and Ozzimo, 37 (who once sold LuLaRoe women’s apparel), started reselling items out their home. Sometimes they'd meet up with buyers at other locations, like in parking lots. Doing that repeatedly for transactions totaling $15 got to be a bit much, so they made a leap by opening a store. Called Goods Galore, it now operates out of Spencerport Road in Gates.
Flash forward two years, and not only has the pallet-liquidation business become a full-time job for Ozzimo and a part-time occupation for Follett, it has led to reality-TV stardom: The high-energy pair will make their debut on the new A&E series Extreme Unboxing, premiering at 10 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4.
The show, which is reminiscent of A&E’s Storage Wars, "follows a group of larger-than-life personalities from across the country as they buy liquidated merchandise for pennies on the dollar and unbox it with hopes for big profits,” the network says. “Risking their own money to bid on and win the best boxes at the best prices, pallets are delivered to their homes for the big reveal.” Each pair “digs through hundreds, sometimes thousands, of items on the hunt for retail gold.”
Sound good? Follett wasn’t so sure at first.
Or at least he was skeptical when producers reached out to him, at which time he was only about two weeks into buying liquidated goods online.
“I guess they saw me bidding against other people on live feeds, and somehow I stuck out to them,” he said.
“It’s because Bobby is crazy,” Ozzimo said. “He just has this buying obsession," and on one particular night he won 20 auctions — possibly giving the Extreme Unboxing people the idea that Follett really knew what he was doing. “Little did they know he had no freaking clue,” Ozzimo said with a laugh.
“When I first started, I just sort of went for it,” is how Follett described his less-than-strategic approach early on.
Producers sent him three or four emails, all seeking personal information, “and I deleted them because I thought they were fake. And when I told her about it,” he said, referring to Ozzimo, “she pretty much jumped down my throat.”
After doing some research and consulting with his lawyer brother, Follett realized the pitch wasn’t a scam and got onboard.
The audition process, which involved multiple FaceTime interviews, wound up stretching out nearly nine months, Ozzimo said.
“There was a lot of lag time. A lot of waiting. A lot of waiting and not knowing,” she said.
Eventually, though, they got word they’d been chosen to star on Season 1 of Extreme Unboxing, and footage for a dozen episodes was shot here last September, October and November.
As with Storage Wars, about professional buyers of abandoned storage spaces, Extreme Unboxing draws most of its appeal from a cast of colorful characters.
The series does show how liquidation-pallet sales work, and that can provide drama: Pallets that seem promising turn out to be duds. Items show up broken. Inventory manifests prove faulty. So a buyer expecting a pallet including a box containing a swimming pool may wind up with a box of Depends adult diapers instead.
“You never really know until you open it,” Follett said. "You do get surprised."
But it’s the personalities that give the show life, and Follett and Ozzimo's impressed the program's creators.
"We had a few video conferences with Bobby and Salena, and we thought they were fun, funny and jumped out of the screen," said executive producer Greg Johnson. "They’re also young parents, which is very relatable, and they have a physical brick-and-mortar store that they sell out of, which was something none of the other teams we spoke with had, and we wanted to represent the wide variety of resellers out there."
Although the two had never been on television before and didn’t go looking for fame, they are already hoping for a Season 2.
A network spokesperson said A&E usually airs a full season of a series before making any decisions about ordering another one.
“We’ve got our fingers crossed,” Follett said.
Meanwhile, he still has his landscaping business and continues working with Ozzimo on Goods Galore, where merchandise in brand-new condition is sold for 30 percent off retail, and other items, depending on condition, are discounted as much as 80 percent. (The store does a lot of its business on Facebook and because of the coronavirus pandemic, offers curbside pickup.)
But even if Season 2 doesn't happen, Follett and Ozzimo's engaging ways should continue to serve them well in real life.
To be successful in retail, "You’ve got to be a people person," Follett said. "You've got to put yourself out there and be willing to have a little fun and get along with every type of person who walks through that door."
And as with any business, from running a shop to hosting a garage sale, "You’ve got to be ready for a risk," he said.

Now viewers can see how they do it and the first two episodes of this series will premiere back-to-back on August 4 at 10pm, following What’s it Worth? with Jeff Foxworthy.
Who are Extreme Boxing stars Bobby and Salena?
Hailing from Rochester, New York, parents Bobby and Salena are resellers who also have a bricks and mortar storefront to sell their items.
Their business is Goods Galore and they sell a ton of family centric items.
Bobby and Salena focus on selling merchandise they can move easily in their shopmostly home goodsbut that doesn’t stop them from taking chances on huge shipments of bicycles, food items or fashion clothing.
Bobby and Salena have two young children and live for the chaos that comes with running their own business while providing their community with a good deal and making money doing it.
Although they’ve only been in the reselling game for a short time, Bobby and Salena are raking it in.
About Extreme Unboxing
The new series airs with two back-to-back episodes tonight, this Tuesday, August 4 at 10pm ET/PT.
A&E’s Extreme Unboxing follows a group of big personalities from across the country as they buy liquidated merchandise for a fraction of its original retail cost, and then unbox it with hopes for good things to resell and make a buck.
There is risk.
They spend their own money to bid on and win the best boxes at the best prices, but these are unseen pallets which are delivered to their homes for the big reveal. Not every reveal is a homerun. Liquidation.com, DirectLiquidation and Bulq.com are some of the bigger resellers.
Each group digs through hundreds, sometimes thousands, of items on the hunt for retail gems to resell.
Whether it is one box or an entire truckload, these savvy super-flippers scour the Internet searching for their next big score. With items ranging from everyday store stock to the odd finds and wacky items, this modern-day treasure hunt is filled with surprises as no one, including the buyers themselves, have any idea what will be inside.
TV Shows Ace spoke to Bobby and Salena ahead of tonights premiere:
How did the producers find you?
Bobby: They stalked me on Facebook!
Salena: Two weeks after we started this business. They found Bobby on Facebook bidding on merchandise, and he was saying so much, they probably thought he had some idea or thought he knew what he was doing. Come to find out. He had no clue what he was doing.
Bobby: Ive bet I got like three or four emails from them. I thought they were fakebut they kept emailing me. So after a while, I was like, alright fine.
I didnt even tell Salena that I was getting them. Then I finally told her, and when I told her she literally jumped inside my throat and out my toes. Thats where we are now.
Your store, you have a bricks and mortar business called Goods Galore in Rochester, New York. How long have you had it?
Bobby: Two years. We started our first store. And now were in our third location. About two years. We just went and looked at some retail spaces and every space weve been in weve outgrown within months.
What do you avoid and what do you love to stock in your store?
Salena: We avoid clothes and food. We dont do that. We go after for everything else. We were kind of like a general merchandise. We have almost everything, all the major retailers have. So we have our bedding, our kitchen furniture, furniture toys, and some miscellaneous small core things like that.
Do you ever go to thrift stores or consignment places?
Salena: No, we get a lot more money for items that are brand new and box or anything in a box.
Bobby: We dont really know the thrift store game. We dont really venture into it. So we dont wouldnt know what to look for. Its not our thing.
What are your best sellers currently in the last year, especially with COVID, what are you selling the most of, and that youve looked for mostly?
Salena: Since COVID it has been a lot of workout equipment, outdoor pools and grills and furniture, anything for outdoors. Things we know that have been pretty much sold out in stores since COVID hit, like trampolines. Anything kid-friendly and also for outside which has also has been sold out in stores. So when we get that, its huge for us.
Bobby: Yes. Ive noticed in our store we sold out really fast of all of our puzzles, its the weirdest thing in the world, but COVID is keeping people together, their families, and theyre trying to find ways to occupy their minds and their families and the puzzles flew. I cant keep puzzles and things for in the backyard.
This is sort of like a big picture question. Ive noticed how retail has the nature of retail stores and how we grew up with malls and stores and retail places to go buy things, but theyre shrinking because of Amazon. Have you felt this shift?
Salena: Absolutely more online now. Everything is coming definitely an online business, right? We have a huge online following as well as our stores, but we have picked up tremendously and online sales were big.
Bobby: COVID opened our eyes to see what type of presence we actually had online with our store. We have a group on Facebook, specifically designed for our store and we post on that all day long. And our group just, it blew up during COVID and we noticed how fast and active our group is.
Interesting. Now, shipping is tough, especially for the big items, do you set it up? How do you have to ship things or do people come to pick things up from you?
Salena: We dont typically ship. The beauty of having a store is our customers are local. So when they claim something online, they have a 24 hour timeframe to 48 hours to come and pick up the items. The only time we ship is when we turn to eBay, but were not really big on those sites
Bobby: And were working our way. There, thats another avenue were going to open up to after we seen the presence we had on the Facebook group that we have. So were going to look more into shipping. and when it comes to shipping, it is what it is. Its something I got to look into and the cost is definitely going to be more
Whats the production like? Because of COVID, you guys are pretty much filming yourself, but is there any support you have anyone from the production company that sort of sets you up?
Bobby: We, we filmed all of this before COVID actually hit.
Salena: Yes we filmed in September, October and November of last year. So we were completely done before it all hit.
Bobby: Yeah. Weve been doing a few a self shots here and there with the producers Facetiming us and directing us what they were looking for during COVID, but for the majority of the filming, everything was done before COVID even hit. Im very lucky.
How do you know where to buy? Where do you guys go to buy these huge pallets of things?
Bobby: Basically the show is going to outline a lot of that for us. Theres a bunch of websites out there that give you options for bidding on pallets. If you want to buy just one pallet a couple of sites, break it down to what the pallet is, what category say, kitchen, bedding, toys, things like that. Um, they all break it down and you can bid online through this stuff.
Who are these people theyre selling these pallets? Is it overseas retail?
Bobby: No, Its all local. Its all your local, big retailers. So all returns that either somebody didnt like it, they used it, it broke, it couldnt get delivered to their house. The box was damaged. What happens? Theres a number of reasons why people return
Salena: There are companies out there that are spending billions of dollars, buying all these overstocks departments from all these big retailers, and then they put it up on their websites,
So you kind of squeeze in there between the Big Lots and Overstock.com. Is that correct?
Bobby: Yes, thats correct me It took me probably over a year to really get my connections and refine how to buy and where to buy from. So that way I know what Im getting. I still dont know the condition of these itemsbut I just have a better relationship that I can get a little bit better product then going in blind.
Why do you avoid the food sector?
Salena: Expired! A lot of the time food is expired and its not been profitable. Yes.
Bobby: Its not what we do. Its not what we go after. It never really appealed to us. We didnt want to be more like a Dollar General-type store we wanted to be in between like the Big Lots and Target. We wanted to sell the stuff that we know people really look for.
Do you employ people or are you guys running the show?
Bobby: Its us, were running it! Lot of my family comes and helps as well.
Salena: We have some friends that come in on the weekends and help us price and organize.
Can people come off the street and come into your store?
Bobby: Oh yeah, absolutely.
Do you recommend this for people who are maybe caught in the short hair is from this COVID and are out of a job or, or their, their career has been basically COVID canceled out?
Bobby: If they have the disposable income and willpower and grit to do it, then by all means, go for it. The best thing about this business is theres really not a lot of competition because we all get different items.
Salena: Anybody can do it. It doesnt take a lot of money to buy it, to start small. And then you can just sell out of your house. if thats your thing, you can take your local garage sale sites, Facebook marketplace. Theres so many avenues you can sell,
Extreme Unboxing airs Tuesdays with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, August 4 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E.

A&E's 'Extreme Unboxing' Will Make You Want to Become an Online Reseller
Do you miss the intrigue and excitement of Storage Wars? Well, A&Es new reality series, Extreme Unboxing, may finally fill that void in your TV schedule.
The show follows a group of people who buy pallets full of returned items from retailers such as Walmart, Target, and Macys to then resell the products for a profit. In a recent video on their YouTube channel, cast members Paul and Heather revealed how they got started in the unboxing business and shared a few tools of the trade.

'Extreme Unboxing': how to buy return pallets.
The husband and wife team get their goods from liquidators who have contracts with big-box stores. "You basically build relationships with liquidators and learn their system," Heather explained.
"Each liquidator has their own way of reselling the product to you, so [with] some you have to work with an actual sales manager, some you can go straight onto their website, look at the products, look at a manifest, buy that way. Others you have to bid auction-style on it," she noted.

"A quick Google search and youll find them," Paul added. "We find new ones at least every month Its like Christmas morning every time we open a box."
The owners of Hooked on Pickin initially got into the resale game to supplement Pauls income. "We realized we were broke," the pastor admitted. "Gods people try hard, but we dont normally make a whole lot of money, nor do you go into ministry to make a whole lot of money."

The pair has been unboxing for six or seven years now and feel like theyve seen everything. "We have gotten used dental guards," Heather recalled, assuring prospective customers that she immediately threw them away. Theyve also received shipments of gas masks, which might just see a surge in popularity this year.
COVID has changed the resale industry… maybe for good.
When asked how the coronavirus pandemic has impacted their business, Heather stated that online resellers who find items through thrifting instead of liquidator unboxing have been affected the most. Still, the couple has noticed a shift in what theyre able to get rid of easily.

"Anything that you can find that occupies people inside their home sells really well," Heather said in her YouTube video. "So things that people use when theyre going on vacation, such as suitcases we cannot sell a suitcase to save our life right now because nobodys going anywhere."
Theyve also received an abundance of seasonal items that were "shelf-pulls," meaning the product is no longer being sold in stores. "COVID hit around the time Easter happened, so Easter returns are really, really big," Heather revealed.
"We had a liquidator contact us and [say], 'Listen, if youll just pay for the shipping, I will ship you an entire truckload of Easter eggs and Easter candy,'" Paul fondly recalled. Heather noted, "If you buy in bulk, youre gonna get the best price."
New episodes of Extreme Unboxing air Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
Unboxing real extreme is
Extreme Unboxing joins the list of unscripted shows coming to the AE to the network on Tuesday, August 4, , and will be airing at p.m..
The series covers the act of purchasing large bulk returns, normally viewed as Palette Unboxing, and the benefits of doing it as well as the risks. Because we love treasure hunts, we wanted to share this with our audience, and showcase the series.
With that in mind, we decided to reach out to executive producers with the show, Greg Johnson and Jenny Daly, to get our readers a bit more information, and what to expect.
Eric Seuthe II: Shows like Storage Wars, seemed to fill a dual niche audience, of those that like to find out the value of the items in their home, but also those looking to chase the high of prize box style entertainment. What was the deciding factor in creating a show like this that focuses on pallet unboxing?
- Greg Johnson: I think the combination of those who like the chase of the unknown in the boxes and the reveal of the value of the items are both interesting and equal draws. There’s also an accessibility to the show and this world for the viewers. They can go online and get into the action of purchasing boxes from their own homes without having to invest a lot of money and turn a profit themselves.
Jenny Daly: The fact that this world exists and people are making money in an alternative way that basically anyone can do if they chose to invest the time and money made us interested. People are always looking for ways to reimagine how they can make money and especially during this pandemic so the show could not be more timely! You can make money and never have to leave your home!
Eric: The topic of Extreme Unboxing is a topic covered by parties on Youtube. What can fans of the YouTubers look forward to, or expect to find in your show, that they would not acquire from your series?
- Greg: We’ve amped up the presentation focusing on the fun and action of unboxing and showcase a wide variety of items. The series moves fast and has a fun play along with graphics and also gives tips for home viewers who might be interested in reselling. There’s no lag time with our unboxings, we get to the fun and keep things moving and our teams of re-sellers are fun and energetic regardless of whether the items have high ticket values or might be a total disappointment.
Eric: There are many companies that sell returns by the palette, and many companies that benefit from the act, is there a specific venue, I.E. Amazon, that you get your palettes from?
- Greg: We utilized a cross-section of companies and websites that represent the world of buying and reselling. These were based on who the cast was actually buying from and we tried to let them lead and go with who they were using.
Eric: Will the show simply be covering the discovery of the items in the unboxing, or will it display the journey from purchasing lots, and reselling the items within?
- Greg: We follow the journey from the purchase of the pallets to the unboxing and reveal the resell values along the way.
Eric: In the youtube videos, there have been questions about the honesty of palette unboxing, what promises does this show make to its audience about the authenticity of its unboxings?
- Greg: What we see on the show is what the cast actually purchased. When the boxes came in, we’d shoot whatever was in that pallet or boxes. There were no manipulations.
Jenny Daly: The cast had no idea what they would get out of these palettes but had high hopes based on how the business of purchasing pallets works. The auction process gives anyone the ability to see some of the items and comes with a list of items that are hopefully in the pallet and in good condition. But they never truly know until they are opening the boxes and pulling out the content to see if it matches their expectations.
Eric: Whats the most expensive prize ever found over the course of the series?
- Greg: I think the most expensive item was an espresso machine worth over $ Others high ticket items include a portable refrigerator/freezer worth over $, a 4K HD rifle scope valued at $, and a high-end Batman costume valued at over $
Eric: Is the network simply covering the unboxings, or are they purchasing them, for the talent in the series?
- Greg: The teams purchase the pallets and we cover the arrival and the unboxings. Our teams are purchasing multiple pallets a week for their businesses (regardless of the TV show), and since it is a minute show, we cannot show every pallet they buy. We discuss with each team what purchases might be most interesting to unbox for our viewers in order to showcase the diverse and varied unboxings to best represent this world.
Eric: Is the purpose of this show to entice audiences to join in the act of palette unboxing, or does the show form more of a warning for those thinking about getting into the process?
- Greg: For the most part the show is fun and will naturally entice folks to join in on the action. Our cast are pros at this and they really enjoy it and this comes through their enthusiasm. But we are authentic to the world and show both the good and the bad purchases as that’s the rollercoaster ride of buying and reselling liquidated merchandise. There are real risks and rewards.
Jenny Daly: There is a ton of fun watching the reveals of these cast members opening up their purchased pallets. The thrill of seeing if they made a good investment or if they made a poor one. Some of the viewers will be knowledgeable in the products they are revealing and can have fun playing along and others will be watching because they are invested in the teams’ journeys.
Eric: On average, what has been the outcome in this show, over the course of the palettes, and if they end producing a profit?
- Greg: I would say most of the pallets produced a profit for our teams, however, there were a few exceptions where items were damaged or broken, but those are the real risks and we wanted to be true to this world and illustrate that when it naturally occurred.
Again, the show starts on Tuesday, August 4, at p.m. EST/PST on AE!

Grocery stores can legally donate food that is past its expiration date according to the USDA. That being said, in our litigious society, many large corporations are hesitant to donate some items that could be deemed questionable in terms of food safety out of fear of getting sued.
What is Targets exchange policy?
Targets Return Policy Most unopened items sold by Target in new condition and returned within 90 days will receive a refund or exchange. Some items sold by Target have a modified return policy noted on the receipt, packing slip, Target policy board (refund exceptions), Target.com or in the item description.

How do the pallets of returns work?
Big companies like Walmart, Target, Macy’s and Amazon all receive millions of returns every year. Wonder what happens to those returns? They are packaged up into boxes and sold off at a much cheaper price to people like those featured on Extreme Unboxing.
These companies have contracts with liquidators, who then sell off the returned pallets of products to individuals at a low cost.
Some products are just as new and can be sold as such, others are not worth a resell, so it’s a lucky dip with the pallets.

Extreme Unboxing: How to buy
Extreme Unboxing’s married team Paul and Heather explained how they got into the unboxing ‘biz on YouTube.
Heather explains: “Each liquidator has their own way of reselling the product to you, so [with] some you have to work with an actual sales manager, some you can go straight onto their website, look at the products, look at a manifest, buy that way. Others you have to bid auction-style on it.”
Paul claims: “A quick Google search and you’ll find them.”
Thrifting is also a key way to get into the unboxing business, so also be on the look out for bundle deals. You can find this stuff by searching for pallet boxes online. You are then sent the pallet box, and when you unbox it, there could be treasures waiting on a resell inside. Also remember, if you buy in bulk, you’ll be getting the best price!
