CINCINNATI — Everything must go!
The total contents of the 32-story former Millennium Hotel, which closed on New Year’s Eve, went on sale to the general public on Friday.
Need a flat-screen TV? Some 800 are available, according to International Content Liquidations, Inc., which is handling the sale.
How about a couch or a clock or a grand piano? You can buy furniture, beds and linens, room furnishings – almost anything – including the kitchen sink.
“We have probably 4,000 pictures,” said Frank Long, ICL president. “They’re $6. They’re all Cincinnati themed.”
Buyers can go into any room and pick what they want, said Long.
"You'll be able to come in, shop, view the goods, go shop it right out of the rooms,” Long said. “You come down and you bring it to the point of sales, pay for it, and take it out to your transport."
Prices on all items are about 10 percent of their original value, Long said.
But buyer beware. Read what the website says:
“All Items are priced, tagged and sold on an 'AS IS, WHERE IS BASIS.' Buyer is responsible for removing their purchase in accordance with ICL’S 'Procedures Terms & Conditions.'"
Among the conditions: You have two days to pick it up after you buy it.
Admission is $2. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
The sale is scheduled to last for two weeks unless items sell out earlier.
Hamilton County is buying the property at Fifth and Elm and plans to demolish the building and replace it with a new hotel or expand the convention center – or both.
