Time winding down to secure Greater Victoria auction bargains

Great deals on the items your family wants, in Black Press auction

Who doesn’t love finding great deals on goods and services around Greater Victoria?

Along that line, there’s something for everyone in the Black Press Auction Advantage, a unique marketplace of items that offer bidders fantastic value for the buck, all offered up by local merchants and professionals in your neighbourhoods.

Hundreds of people have so far bid on an estimated $265,000 worth of local goods and services. While only a handful of days remain to bid, there’s still plenty of opportunity to receive discounts up to 50 per cent on a multitude of auction items.

There’s nine different categories, with deals including furniture from Dodd’s, household items from Canadian Tire locations, golf at Olympic View and paddleboards from Flaman Fitness, as well as food offerings from Sooke Harbour House and Big Wheel Burger, yoga fitness packages from Ajna Yoga and much more.

For potential buyers, all it takes to get involved is to register at bit.ly/2rpnDHO and you’re ready to go. There you’ll find a list of categories from which you can browse the offerings and select the deals that interest you the most.

Have fun browsing through the offers and good luck securing some great value from local businesses. The auction closes this Sunday (June 11) at 8 p.m.
