A visit to Jarrod and Brandi’s thrift store will reveal that this place is committed to displaying a wide variety of goods. There you will most likely find lots of knickknacks as well as TVs, sofas and other furniture, and small and large appliances. There is a little bit of everything to be found in their store. The idea of opening this store came about as a result of the storage unit items that Jarrod bought home, overrunning their house that both him and Brandi share. And this was after a number of other business ventures operated by Jarrod.
A good thing that has happened since Storage Wars first aired is the fact that business has improved for them. It also has made more people show up for their storage auctions, from what typically used to be somewhere around 30 people showing up in the past, to approximately 100 people or more, currently. Storage Wars has been renewed for another season (its second actually) after the first season drew more than 2 million viewers in its premiere episode. This was A&E Network’s most highest rated non-fiction show for the year 2010, and it had an average of 2.4 million viewers per episode.
Jarrod and Brandi Passante have come a long ways since the first few episodes, and they seem to be doing much better this season as the new episodes are broadcast. They are bidding more money on storage units, and they seem to be making more money as well. We wish them both success, on and off of the show.
Watch Storage Wars each Wednesday on A&E. Check your local listings for airtimes.
