About Us

Dream Homes for All

Who We Are

Nice to meet you! We are a tech-driven online retailer located near Salt Lake City in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains. Since our beginnings in 1999. Overstock has evolved from a fledging startup to a billion-dollar online retailer as a result of a hard-working and creative team.

What We Value

We are passionate about doing our part to make life better. We provide high-quality merchandise, great value, and exceptional customer service. We connect people with products and services in new and unexpected ways. We do our part to create dream homes for all.

Connections

Connecting the world – it's why we support pet adoptions, local farmers, international artisans, and have the best customer care in the industry.

Entrepreneurship

From opening our website to artists and small businesses to our full embrace of a blockchain future, we're always looking for what's next.

Social Responsibility

Overstock actively supports several local and national charities, offers carbon-neutral shipping, and is a fur- and ivory-free retailer.
