Santa Rosa Junior College is selling off some surplus equipment on Ebay. The sale is being conducted by Interscholastic Trading Company.
Tom Bosma, purchasing director for the JC, said the Ebay auctions have proven a boon for the college to clear out warehouse space and get somewhere between 50-80 percent of the sale price for many items.
“So far, it’s been working pretty well, clearing things out out of the warehouse,” he said.
When the school relied on an auctioneer to come and run a sale, the school had run a deficit many times counting, Bosma said. That doesn’t happen with the online sales, which began this last school year.
Among the items for sale are:
School surplus items
Camera and sound equipment
Descriptions of the items can be found at http://stores.ebay.com/interschola after Friday. The auction ends Aug. 7.
