Buck’s Dairy Quik to auction equipment, land

Published 11:43am Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Buck’s Dairy Quik has been an Alexander City institution since 1961.

But March 27 the Buck’s era will draw to a close as the land and equipment will all be sold at public auction.

John Granger, auctioneer with Granger Thagard and Associates, Inc., said that his company will be handling the sale.

“Buck’s has been a longstanding tradition in Alexander City, but at this point the ownership desires to close this chapter of their life and move on,” Granger said. “When a business ceases (its operations), the assets of that business need to be sold.”

An equipment inspection will be held prior to the auction beginning at noon.

Granger said this will be an absolute auction, meaning that everything must be sold during the event to the highest bidder.

“We will start at 1 p.m. with the real estate auction,” Granger said. “The personal property will be offered piece by piece, and we will start selling those items following the real estate auction.”

The auction is open to the public, but all bidders will need to bring a photo ID and register on-site by 12:50 p.m.

All of the items inside the restaurant must be sold. The following is a partial list of equipment to be sold: 10 booths, 12 tables, 55 chairs, Wyott gas hot plate, Pitco Frialator, icemaker, Sterling milkshake Multimixer, TEC electronic cash registers, MasterB Hatco heat lamps.

Bidders should bring a truck and trailer so they can leave the auction with any goods they may purchase.

“Paul (Daniels) is looking forward to moving on,” Granger said. “I hope that people will go out and visit with him one last time between now and when he closes up.”
