Idaho Press-Tribune has served the residents of Canyon County since the 1880s. Over the years, the company has been forced to evolve to better serve the local community. On June the 24th, they announced a new addition to their portfolio, an online auction website. The online auction website, bStockBuys.com, will give consumers the opportunity to buy online at huge discounts. It is the company’s first experiment with e-commerce and one they hope will be equally beneficial for everyone involved.
To help stock the site with items consumers need and want, Idaho Press-Tribune has invested in a massive inventory of seasonable inventory, customer returns, and overstocked items. These items were made available on the auction website yesterday. The auction is scheduled to remain live for a period of seven days in total. The items displayed on the auction website are classified as “bStock”.
This term is primarily used to identify items that have been returned, overstocked or damaged. Since there is some degree of risk involved, the items have been marked down to the lowest cost possible. While some of the items may be in perfect condition, others could have minor cosmetic damage or signs of wear and tear. The Idaho Press-Tribune strongly encourages customers to read the description thoroughly, so they can know what they’re bidding on.
The newspaper’s staff has visually inspected the items as thoroughly as possible. Nevertheless, the items on bStockBuys.com come with no warranty or guarantee. Items on the site are sold “as-is” and returns are not accepted. At this point in time, the site features a handful of items, including a Cub Cadet snow thrower, a three-piece pruning set, outdoor solar spotlights, and shop blowers.
Customers can also bid on LED lights, shop vacuums, and jump cables. Additional details can be found by visiting the Idaho Press-Tribune’s official website here.
