Owner Bridgette More said a new online auction platform, created in response to the pandemic restrictions, was ‘‘fantastic’’ and would stay.
‘‘It is something that we had been thinking about for some time and we thought the lockdown was an opportunity to embrace that and make the business more adaptable and sustainable long-term ... This is a way forward.’’
It would also continue an online timed auction and live auction webcasts.
But Mrs More was still expecting a good in-person turnout from buyers.
‘‘We do have a really loyal client base for our general auction ... people come along because they love the experience.’’
Those buyers would be able to get their hands on everything from Dunedin’s old Fortune Theatre seats to china and glassware.
She said lockdown was a chance to re-evaluate business sustainability and, being in the second-hand and auction industry, the future looked ‘‘really bright’’.
