Chamber to have 35th online auction

| March 9, 2017

COSHOCTON – The 35th annual Coshocton Chamber of Commerce auction will be live beginning Friday, March 10 at 9 a.m. and bidders can place their bids through Saturday, March 18 at noon. Bidders will have the chance to bid on about 175 to 200 items, all donated by local businesses and chamber members.

“We have such a broad scope of items,” said Chamber Executive Director Amy Stockdale. “Everything from gift cards, Kids America passes, Lake Park passes, hotel overnight stays, and Annin Flag is very generous with the donation of a bigger flag. We just have a huge plethora of local donations.”

The chamber of commerce constantly supports buying local, and the chamber auction is a great way to support the local economy and the members of the chamber of commerce. All money raised will go toward their marketing campaign which is used to market their members. This includes all online marketing and local advertising. A list of the chamber members can be found on their website:

When the auction goes live, bidders have the option to submit their maximum bid on items they wish to bid on. Each time a bid is outbid, the bidder will receive an alert. Each item in the auction starts at $0. Peddicord Rice Auction Realty is hosting and managing the online auction.

“We couldn’t do this without Peddicord Rice because they are letting us use their online auction service,” said Stockdale.

After the auction closes, bidders can pick up and pay for their items at the chamber office, located at 200 N. Whitewoman St. beginning Monday, March 20. All items must be picked up by March 31.

“Our community is so generous,” said Stockdale. “I’m very thankful for our members and all those who participate in our auction.”

Peddicord Rice is also a platinum sponsor of the auction, along with AEP Conesville Plant. Gold sponsor is MDHC. Silver sponsors are McWane Ductile, COTC, and Jones Metal.
