Western Cape Auctions has received instruction to auction all the assets of a supermarket, excluding the stock, says auctioneer Chris Baard.

Western Cape Auctions has received instruction to auction all the assets of a supermarket, excluding the stock, says auctioneer Chris Baard.

“The supermarket’s lease agreement has come to an end, and all the equipment has subsequently been moved to our premises to be auctioned.”

The highlight of the event will be the sale of an Alcat 2 conveyor pizza oven in very good condition, which will enable the new owner to start their own pizza outlet, Baard says.

“This unit was fully refurbished a while ago by the agents in Cape Town.”

Baard says other items from the supermarket include an Arcoboa display island freezer; a 3m by 2.4m cold room; more than 50 metres of fairly new supermarket shelving in mint condition, including magazine and fruit shelving, and end shelving.

A point-of-sale system, a popcorn machine, a wrapping machine, a 40-litre dough mixer, a meat slicer, a Kuhn bread slicer, pots, bain marie inserts, an insect killer, bread baskets, a single deep pot sink, stainless steel tables, a microwave, a split-unit air-conditioner, two air curtains, two 6500 kilowatt generators and a turnstile will be among other items on the auction floor.

Also on offer will be items sourced from a restaurant and a cleaning service business.

The restaurant items will include 11 white four-seater restaurant tables for outdoor use; four fold-away four-seater tables; 10 large restaurant umbrellas, without bases; several round table tops; five 2.8m-long upholstered benches with high backs, and two that each measure 1.m; and a 14-tray blast freezer, which is fully functional and has a new compressor.

Goods on offer from the cleaning service business include 22 mop trolleys, two vacuum cleaners, a push sweeper, service trolleys, helmets and other items.

The auction assets may be viewed between 10am and 2pm on Saturday and Sunday, and between 10am and 4pm on Monday.

Baard says all items on offer will be sold “voetstoots” and changes could be made to the list of assets without prior notification.
