J&R Is Auctioning Off Its Excess Inventory Today & Tomorrow

Exactly what will become of the J&R megastore which closed for redevelopment earlier this year is yet to be seen. It is promising to reopen next year, but, in the meantime, the store closed so abruptly that it did not give itself a chance to clear out of its vast inventory of computers, electronics, cameras, TVs, housewares and everything else. To alleviate that problem, the store is auctioning off its remaining inventory today and tomorrow. This is not usually the way a retailer who plans to stay in business would operate, which makes us wonder if J&R really will ever reopen when the redevelopment is completed. 

Details and photos can be found HERE.
The auction will be held at the Park Row store, and is CASH or Certified Check ONLY, so come prepared. Brands available include Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Canon, Nikon etc., so basically all of the top brands that J&R sold except for Apple, which is not listed and probably not included.

This kind of thing doesn't happen every day, so if you have any electronics needs, get down there ASAP!.
That is all.

UPDATE: Here's a caveat before you head downtown. It turns out that the auction is geared more toward buyers who plan to resell. Very few items are available in single lots, so you may not be able to buy one laptop, but you will be able to buy a lot of three or four laptops.
