They did have a bunch of weights. They buy weights at 45 cents/pound and sell at 90 cents per pound. All weights are created equal so CAP metal hexes are 90 cents a pound and Troy Urethane Coated are 90 cents a pound. It was difficult for me to walk away from the Troy 40s. Bumpers and Steel plates are all priced equally so VTX bumpers are 90 cents a pound and CAP steel plates are 90 cents a pound. I really wanted to get the VTX 45s, 25s and 10s, but settled for just the 10s. I could not walk away empty handed.
They also had a few bars including a Gopher Safety Squat Bar which retails for $400 on sale for $80. They had an Archon football bar for $60. They also had a short Olympic Bar and an Olympic Curl Bar.
I could definitely see myself stopping in on a regular basis, but would not want to get into the flipping game. I have certainly sold weights for over $1/pound on Facebook and Craigslist, but it is not worth the pain. It would be unlikely that I sell to PIAS as I can minimally do 50-75 cents/pound on Facebook and Craigslist.
