Division of Surplus Bid Sale

It may be another week until Black Friday, but the government is already slashing prices and rolling out the deals. The Division of Surplus Property will have a spot bid sale (similar to a silent auction) for the public Wednesday at its warehouse on Frankfort's Chenault Road. It’s an appendage of the Finance and Administration Cabinet for selling excess federal and state property. The warehouse contains everything from old desks and chairs to toenail clippers and pocketknives – all sold at a fraction of the price new.
