State surplus store no longer open on weekdays
The state of Michigan says its surplus store no longer will be open on weekdays and instead will open only on the third Saturday of each month.
The change takes effect Tuesday. MiStore, as it's known, will hold its first Saturday opening Nov. 19 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The state store has a vast inventory of surplus items. Some are property seized by police, while others were voluntarily surrendered at airports.
The store also has property no longer needed by government agencies, such as desks and computers. Among the items for sale are police cars, flat screen TVs, jewelry, cameras, paddle boats, pocket knives and lawn maintenance equipment.
The surplus store is located at 3201 W. St. Joseph St., Lansing, MI, 48917.
