Auction Success

Our Ding & Dent Auction and Sale went extremely well today. We had many volunteers along with staff working the auction. The surprise for us was the huge amount of customer auctions this time around. There were hundreds of items from customers, enough to make the sales for this auction around the same as the last auction, and with only half as much ding & dent materials provided by the store! Even better, only a handful of customer items didn't sell. Some of those will definitely go next time with a few tweaks.

May is a rough retail month, especially coming off the slow first four months of the year. I want to thank everyone who helped make this possible and the customers who bought these great bargains. It's events like these that get us through the hard times.
