The auction began at 9:00 a.m. Wednesday, and will go until there is no more product left. The store opened up more than 50 years ago at 114 W Sunshine Street. Ownership cited the constantly changing retail environment being unaffordable to stay in business. They claim online shoppingis to blame for the loss of business, as well as other establishments with a business model similiar to theirs. John Appleby is one of the co-owners, along with his brothers, and they have put in a lot of time. "We have worked in it since we were kids, and we are all in our mid 60's now. We have put in about 50 years at this location, so that's a long time. Dad started the store back in the 60's, and he has been out of the business for a couple of years now. So I guess we have come to the end of a generation, I guess here." Pitbull Motorsports will be moving into the Sunshine location, as it will become their primary store.
