Grocery Auction

November 1, 2014

HVFDEMS - 15245 Prince Frederick Road, Hughesville, MD

5:00 PM

Grocery auctions have been gaining popularity all over the country and are one of the most exciting and well-attended types of auctions.

We never know ahead of time what we are getting, but expect anything that could be found in a grocery store such as candies, snacks, sodas, frozen meats, frozen vegetables, frozen pizza, canned goods, dry goods, cleaning supplies, dairy products, or just about anything else in between.

Auctions of this type will have a lot of "pass outs". This means that the larger the crowd the better because the distributor can move more products at a better price. So pass the word to your neighbors and friends. Again, the more people in attendance, the better it is for everyone—the bigger the crowd, the better the deals!

Items will be offered and available in small lots and/or large lots—buy as little or as much as you like. There will be some great deals!

For more information please visit the web page www.farrellauctionservice.com or contact:

Teresa Cook (HVFDEMS) - 240-434-6733, 301-274-4488

Brian Russell (Russell Brothers Farm) - 301-475-1633
