local outlet for cookware

Recently I had noticed a place in Oakland/Emeryville called the Insiders' Outlet. It is on 40th St., across from the Home Depot complex, at the corner of Watt, I believe. I finally stopped in after having ads left on my windshield for several weeks naming brands that they carried.
They had alot of cookware still in the boxes, brands such as All-Clad, Calphalon, Emerilware, etc. Appliances such as Kitchenaid standing mixers, blenders, small microwaves, George Foreman grills, juicers, etc., all name brands at discounted prices.
I bought 2 pieces of All-Clad, for about 55% of the regular price, which I was happy with. They are probably seconds, but I could not detect any problems other than a minor scuff mark (maybe a sixteenth of an inch long) on the inside of the saucepan lid.
They had name brand china, crystal, etc., Wedgewood, Royal Doulton, Noritake and more.
They had clothes and shoes and other things which I ignored.
It's worth a stop if you are in the area. Beats driving to Vacaville.
