Bids and Dibs Moves, Will Reopen This Month

Bids and Dibs consignment store has outgrown its current space and has moved to 108 Scott Avenue.

Last week the staff shut down the store at 19 S. National Avenue, and put excess merchandise out on the sidewalk to give away.

Bids and Dibs consignment store, 19 S. National Avenue is moving locations.

Bids and Dibs consignment store has been in its present location for six years and has outgrown the facility.

The store will have a larger area at the new address, 108  Scott Avenue, Suite C.

The new location of Bids and Dibs is 108 S. State, Suite C. The main door (white, at left in photo) faces the parking lot south of the facility.

Store owner Angie Simon said the employees have been working to get the shop reopened at its new site.

“We will make the main shop entrance face Second Street across from City State Bank”, Simon said. “Wise Tax and Accounting will remain in Suite A on Scott Ave. Suite B (previously The Bunker) will be available for rent or turned into something fabulous soon. We will gain a wonderful amount of square footage that will allow us to serve you better. We are incredibly excited about 2019!”

“Our hope is that the additional square footage will allow our customers a more satisfying shopping experience by offering a greater variety of merchandise,” she said. “Along with increasing the categories in which we carry resale items we are excited to announce we will be adding to our new boutique lines”.

Bids and Dibs owner, Angie Simon,  purchased the southern part of the building in October from Wise Tax and Accounting, 108 S. Scott Avenue.
A peek inside the new facility from the Scott Avenue door on Jan. 6 shows the cavernous building that Bids and Dibs will be filling with merchandise.

“Construction started on the facility last week. We are hoping to re-open sometime this month,” Simon said.

“We will be prepared to start accepting consignments within the next two weeks. We will post details about our new consignment drop off procedures and opening dates on our Facebook page as soon as they are available”.

“The new store will have a much bigger sales floor allowing us to accept larger furniture pieces and household appliances, there will be a sizable room solely dedicated to online sales and our private consignor intake area will allow consignors to drop off items quickly and easily. The larger building will also give us the freedom to host more after-hours events like private parties and fundraisers.”
