Riviera liquidation sale kicks off Thursday | News
LAS VEGAS - The Riviera is re-opening its doors to the public Thursday for its liquidation sale. The sale kicks off at 9 a.m.
Former employees received the first chance Wednesday to buy some of the items.
Organizers of the liquidation say everything – from gaming tables to bar stools to marquee signs – has a price tag on it.
Barbara Kindt worked inside the hotel for 21 years. She says she came to the sale, so she owns something from the place she called home for so many years.
“I'm going to look around and see what else there might be. I'm sure there's something here I have to have, because I'm a shopper. That's my deal,” she said.
National Content Liquidators President Don Hayes says people's tastes vary.
“They're looking for anything in general. They're looking for a bargain, and they're going to find it, whether it's a piece of restaurant equipment, or whether it's a dresser for their mountain home or down at the lake, or if they're just looking for a new place setting or dishes, or they need a vacuum cleaner, or they need a portable dance floor,” he said. “Anything that's in the hotel that's still here today is for sale. That means these brass rails, the carpeting, the drapes - everything goes.”
Thousands of people are expected to attend the liquidation sale, even people traveling to the sale from out of state.
If you are planning on coming, professionals say bring a friend; you might need a hand for bigger purchases.
Wear comfortable shoes, and leave the kids at home, because there will be a lot of activity.
For the first four days of the sale, admission is $10. The sale will go for 28 days or until everything is gone.
