Although Wishard Hospital closed its doors, they opened them back up this morning to sell off the items, appliances and equipment inside. Around 1,500 people lined up outside at the start at 9 a.m. Saturday morning for the sale.
A special business, Centurion Service Group was brought in to handle the sale, which allowed folks to buy things considerably cheaper.
"Everybody's getting good buys, your talking about drawers for $5, and file cabinets. $10 chairs so things like that, things that you would typically pay $200, $300, $400 for, we're selling for $30," Erik Tivin, CEO of Centurion told 24-Hour News 8.
For some, it was hard to say goodbye to Wishard, a hospital that has meant so much to so many, for so long.
"A lot of people have been in this hospital, a lot have been born in this hospital, a lot of people receive services in this hospital. So, I think its a good way to say goodbye to a hospital, " Jeanie Cummings told 24-Hour News 8
The sell off will go from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Sunday. Whatever is left will go to charitable groups. So far more than 70 have registered to be recipients.
