Sunny's Surplus (formerly known as Sunny's Great Outdoors and Sunny's: The Affordable Outdoor Store) was, at its peak, a chain of 29 surplus stores in Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. The chain was founded in 1948 by Sidney Weinman to sell World War II surplus. The name Sunny's is from the first store manager. The first store was located at East Baltimore and Frederick Streets in Baltimore, Maryland. It later added camping gear and in 1990 renamed itself Sunny's The Affordable Outdoor Store.
In 2000, Sunny's filed for Chapter 11 protection in U.S. Bankruptcy Court and emerged 13 months later.
In early January 2007, Sunny's began liquidation sales as it prepared to close down all of its locations after the Elkridge-based company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the second time in a decade. March 16, 2007, marked the final day in which the company's remaining stores (a handful of stores up until this point had closed) were open for business.
