We have many topics to cover in the upcoming weeks, but today we want to address next week, Thanksgiving. If you are on or follow social media you’ll no doubt have seen many posts and comments about stores open and having workers working on Thanksgiving pros and mostly cons. Having been an estate sale liquidator for 25 plus years your editor never worked the Thanksgiving holiday. It was important time for my staff and I to spend with our families and recharge our batteries so to speak. This was a personal decision. Each estate sale company decides their own policy. Sellers, however, should have input about whether they want a sale conducted during this time period.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our audience who follows us, comments to us, and inspires us to continue to provide the most up to date estate liquidation information possible on estate sales, business and estate sale trends. “You are why this website exists”.
This year I will again join my family to celebrate Thanksgiving so no article next Thursday, November 28th. I give thanks this year to you, the EstateSalesNews.com audience. You have made this journey since March 6th, 2013, our launch date the best possible experience and we will continue. This truly is a labor of love for the profession.
It’s been a fascinating week in Los Angeles. Meeting Eric from TMZ was a wonderful experience and as always we keep learning too.
