In preparation for construction and demolition to begin next month, the Lexington Center and Rupp Arena will hold a surplus materials and salvage auction at 10 a.m. Friday.
Items for sale include remaining pieces of the original Rupp Arena court, Rupp Arena concession signage, light fixtures, desks and cabinets, office chairs, display cases, large rolling carts, concession equipment, various hardware, machinery and equipment, snow salt dispenser and a 20-foot Christmas tree.
According to Lexington Center Corporation President and CEO Bill Owen, “As the saying goes, ‘one man’s trash is another man’s treasure’. Many of these items still have value and are just in need of a new owner. Our goal is to recycle and keep as much as possible out of the landfill.”
The auction, to be conducted by Bluegrass Auction, will be held in back of Rupp Arena, underneath the Jefferson Street viaduct, in the Manchester Street lot. All items are sold as-is with no warranty implied.
