About Us

We are Twin City Surplus. Thanks for stopping by our online store!

We opened our doors in 1963 with a mission to provide our customers a wide selection of goods and surplus items to fit their varied needs. 

We are located in the "biggest little city in the world", Reno, Nevada! Reno lies in the Truckee Meadows, less than an hour's drive east from the idyllic shores of Lake Tahoe. Reno developed a reputation as a gambling haven in the 1950's and the town still boasts many world renowned casino-resorts such as the Atlantis, the Peppermill, and the Grand Sierra Resort. Since then, Reno has grown and diversified. We are lucky to have so many wonderful attractions in our mid-sized city... we are home to the University of Nevada at Reno, a full sized research university. In just the last few years, Reno has welcomed several multinational corporations, most notably the auto manufacturer Tesla, who have decided to build their factories here. As we receive influxes of new people who are involved in these companies, Reno is quickly growing into a bustling city with a cosmopolitan vibe! We host several very fun and interesting events during the year, such as Hot August Nights, a convention celebrating vintage vehicles as well as the Reno Air Races in September, a great and exciting sight to see! And when it comes to natural beauty, we are truly blessed. Lake Tahoe to the east, Pyramid Lake to the north, and plenty of camping and hiking are also available in the East and South as you head into the desert known as the Great Basin. Whether you are just passing through or spending some time here in Reno, there is plenty to enjoy... 

Our store is located on a three and a half acre lot. We have a huge selection of items! We sell brand new products as well as used, vintage, and antique items. If you come by our property, you can enjoy perusing our lot and you bet you'll find something unique! 

Here are some of the things we can help you shop for:

  • Gifts
  • Clothing --- We carry everything from heavy duty work wear to fashionable new items to military clothing!
  • Gear --- Whether for work, camping, hunting, sports, or home improvement, we have a plethora of standard items you expect to find at any hardware store as well as unique items that you won't find anywhere else.

We are pleased to now offer a small selection of our items here on our online store. If you have any questions about an item, please don't hesitate to contact us! We would be happy to help you. If there is something that you do not see but would like, please give us a call and we would be happy to ship it to you...
