Princeville empties house with liquidation sale
by Blake Jones – The Garden Island
Preparing your home for major renovations is a lot of work — from cleaning, to sorting through cabinets and drawers, to moving furniture out of the way.
But if you’re the 252-room Princeville Resort and planning a seven-month-long, top-to-bottom overhaul, emptying house goes beyond chore to major endeavor.
In fact, the resort has called in Ohio-based National Content Liquidators Inc. to accomplish the job.
Beginning Thursday, the public is invited to peruse the goods up for grabs, including thousands of items of furniture, fixtures, equipment, decor, lobby antiques and accessories. An invitation-only sale for commercial customers began earlier this month.
National Content Liquidators Manager Patrick Folk said customers can buy one lamp or 100.
“When we leave here, this place will be empty,” Folk told The Garden Island in an interview last week.
The sale will continue for 30 days, with hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
Early arrival is encouraged as hundreds of people are expected to walk through the doors in the first few days. Admission is free.
Some of the items on sale include the contents of 202 oceanfront parlor guestrooms, 41 prince junior suites, seven executive suites, two presidential suites along with commercial equipment ranging from room furniture, 25-inch color TVs, marble-top writing desks, armoires, loveseats, chandeliers, sconces, bathroom fixtures, curio cabinets, oil paintings, a marble front desk, carpeting, drapes, banquet and catering items, tables and chairs, cutlery and china.
Prices range from $1 to a $6,000 chandelier located in the hotel lobby.
