In February, Auction Masters delayed the sale of items remaining after the going-out-of-business sale at the Home Valu Bloomington location. According to Auctionmasters.com, the auction is back, as of this weekend. The site indicates that inspection is from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 1901 W. American Blvd. The online-only auction closes at 5 p.m. Monday and items must be picked up Tuesday. The Home Valu website is inactive and does not provide further information. Neither site offers any information about an auction at the Fridley location.Big discounts at Stephanie's closing sale in Edina
