702 Auctions was founded in July 2020 by co-owners Ron Williams and Charles Kennett. Ron and Charles met in 8th grade in Las Vegas,NV and have been best friends since. Over the last 30 years, they have worked together, apart, managed, and started multiple successful businesses.
July 2020 was the beginning of the pandemic and Ron and Charles saw the writing on the wall. People were getting laid off, brick and mortar businesses were closing, and people were buying almost everything online. This situation created a surplus of overstock and returned merchandise and buyers were looking for more ways to save money. This is what sparked the idea for 702 Auctions and they ran with it.
Our first location was a small 2,000 sqft warehouse, about the size of a 3-4 bedroom house. In February 2021, we relocated into a 9,000 sqft warehouse and in July 2022, we expanded again growing into 15,000 sqft. We hope to continue this growth by expanding into multiple locations to make it more convenient for our customers all over the valley to pick up their items. We also plan on expanding into other cities and states, offering the 702 experience to more and more people every year.
Our amazing team is one of the main reasons for the success we have had. When you arrive at 702 Auctions, you will always be greeted immediately with a friendly smile. Once you are checked in, we will quickly pull your items from our warehouse, bring them out to your car, and load them up for you.
Behind the scenes, the warehouse team works hard to make every effort to accurately describe, photo, and organize each and every product that comes in. Our IT team is always working to improve the website experience by adding new features to help you to find the products you are most interested in, and make sure you don't accidentally miss that next great deal.
Our mission statement is “To help retailers liquidate name brand returns and discontinued items and reduce the number of products sent to landfills by offering them for sale daily at a fraction of the retail price.” Keeping with that mission, we currently offer hundreds of unique products 7 days a week from all of the major retailers like Amazon, Kohls, Target, Best Buy, Home Depot and many more.
As of August 2022, we have saved almost 100,000 items and over 1 million pounds of waste from going to a landfill. At the same time, we have saved our customers over $4 million dollars off of retail prices!! We hope to continue offering this superior customer service and amazing savings on great products for many years to come.
