Surplus Sale Updates:
* We had a small herd of volunteers Saturday, with the WSU Delta Tau Delta’s prepping the exterior of the store for paint and students from Pullman High School in the Key Club working in the hardware aisle and doing some solid work there! We’re slowly getting things better organized, and these two groups sure give the effort a boost!
* The Surplus Sale had a “staff meeting” on Friday to check in with all the volunteers and the store manager, Eldon, would like to “Thank you all for attending and offering ideas and opinions.”
Special request for volunteers – Thursdays and Saturdays we are short on staff. If you can help, let the store know or fill out a volunteer form at
* We are still looking to hire Truck Crew members to support those sales – please spread the word.
