What Does COVID-19 Mean for the 2020 Sale???
We are committed to having as "normal" of a day as possible while keeping you safe! We know we're ALL tired of dealing with COVID-19 and we'd like to go back to where we were before we even knew what this disease was. We also know most of us have been touched by this disease and if you're older or have health conditions, this is nothing to take lightly. That's why Sale Day 2020 is going to see us take a few extra precautions to keep everyone safe and healthy.
We'll have masks available, hand-washing stations, and will work to keep you as safe as possible. We encourage you to remember that folks have situations that make exposure extra risky and to give everyone extra consideration. If you can't be there in person for whatever reason, we've got several options that let you bid without being on-site. Keep reading for more information.
