Well looks like they unpacked more stuff and doing the liquidation again...

Important fact, everything is 50% off this time... unlike the first time(75%)

What do you mean a buyers premium?

EX. Dremel Tool CT Retail: $100
How much would I have to pay for it?

Really? I went to the recent one aka CT Part 1 and it was just 75% off. No premium or anything like that.

If im not mistaken for example something is 100 bucks it would be 50% off so just plainly 50 bucks.

There's no 15% buyers premium when they liquidate stuff, only when it's an auction. (As far as I know) There will, however, most likely be tax.

Yeah there's no BP, there will be a price tag on the item, take 50% off, add tax and that's what you'll pay...

At the last liquidation I bought a pool table with a $399.99 tag got it for $100 plus tax..

This time though, everything is 50% off not 75%...

Not bad if you go right when it opens. Maybe a 3-4 minute line?

Then wait another 30 minutes browsing and its up to a 40 minute line almost.

Best bet if you want to go later is to have one person line up while the others go browse and then alternate. (If you have more than 1 person going with you)

Was there at 12ish, there's like a one or two person lineup for paying. Pretty dead compared to the 75% off days.

Went at 2-ish as well. Very bare minimum things, but a lot of bikes and some Calgary Flames memorabilia. They have hockey sticks for little kids and a hockey net for 100 ($50) I think. Random list: Shovels, yoga mats, bike pumps (handheld 3.99 ones). sandals (wilson) , shoes, some picture frames, magic bowl, first aid kits, small assortment of tools.

Probably see you there tomorrow.

I'm hoping to get some of that instant grass seed stuff at half off. Got some of ones in the shaker bottles last time. It worked well, so hoping for the larger bag types.
