ORANGE, Calif. – Auctioneer Don Presley reports city officials have approved his Orange, Calif., gallery is fit to hold online auctions, reversing a call to relocate or close his business altogether.
“We will continue with the auctions but because of the new city regulations the auctions will be online only,” Presley said. “[Bidders may] come to the store and inspect the items and leave an absentee bid or make arrangements for a phone bid during the auction or you can bid on bargains from the comfort of your computer anywhere in the world.”
Both fire and zoning officials ordered Presley to relocate his business, located at 1319 W. Katella Ave., or pay roughly $60,000 on improvements because they claim his building does not meet fire and and occupancy regulations. Presley moved his auction company to the West Katella Boulevard complex in earlier this year.
Presley announced his staff will be opening a small consignment store in the location as well as develop a growing estate sale division. Presley has quickly built a name for himself in Southern California and the world. His sales and staff landed “The Real Deal,” a 10-part HISTORY series on and reoccurring appearances on A&E’s “Storage Wars!”
