Grocery Auctions in Haywood County NC

We had eaten lunch today at River Rock Grill in Waynesville NC & happened to pick up the Mountaineer while waiting for our food.. One of the lead stories caught our eye.. It said that an auction for food was held in Hazelwood close to the Super Wal-Mart. Isn't that ironic.. just down the street you can find items cheaper than Wal Mart.. about 100 people showed up to find a bargain.. It spread via word of mouth.. If we would've heard about it, we would've gone too...

We had heard a similar story happening in Michigan.. basically what's happening is grocers are eager to hand over their goods to auctioneers if they're not able to sell them in their stores. The grocers rake in the proceeds while paying the auctioneer a commission fee.

It's a very clever & a fun way to find a bargain. Some of the items that were auctioned off this past Friday were potatoes, cases of soda, bottled water, watermelons, candy and other items... This is too interesting not to go find out for yourself.. so don't be surprised if we have a follow up blog to share our experience at the Grocery Auction...

If you're interested, call (828) 593-9649 for more's happening every Friday night at Edward Johnson Auctioneers- 61 Eagles Nest Road, Waynesville. Close to the Waynesville Super Walmart...
