Anyone who's ever shopped at a Marshalls knows half the fun is never knowing what you might find. A designer shirt 80 percent off retail price? Maybe. The cutest shoes you didn't know you needed for just $20? Today just might be the day. That's the thrill of it.

The retailer is taking that idea a step further this week by hiding Marshalls Surprise Boxes filled with free on-trend products in all of its stores around the country. On Friday, August 16, the company is hiding one Surprise Box in all stores nationwide. The first shopper to find the box gets to keep all the products inside—free of charge!

"At Marshalls, we believe life is just better with surprises—it's what makes our stores so exciting to shop," said Victoria Shonkoff, vice president and marketing director for Marshalls, in a press release. "Our stores deliver surprise every day through our ever-changing selection of the brands you love, and we're excited to take surprise to the next level for shoppers across the country with the Marshalls Surprise Box."

Marshalls teamed up with actress Kaley Cuoco for the giveaway when, on August 13, she surprised shoppers in New York's Tribeca Marshalls store. The unsuspecting shoppers got to hang with the actress and take home a box of their own.

"As an actress and producer, I love that that each day can bring something new," said Cuoco in a press release. "I enjoy the element of surprise, and I look for that in my shopping experience as well. The excitement of discovering something special and unexpected is what makes shopping fun and I'm thrilled to share that feeling with shoppers through the Marshalls Surprise Box."

So what can you expect to find inside these limited-quantity surprise boxes? It'll vary by box, but contents range from fashion and accessories to tech and beauty products. Leather clutches, home accents, makeup, wireless headphones, and other on-trend goods await.

This one-day giveaway begins at 2 p.m. on August 16 and ends when all boxes have been found—no later than 9 p.m. Full rules can be found here.
