JWU’s First Ever Surplus Store Sale, April 12

Throughout the last year, JWU’s Energy Conservation Office (ECO) and Facilities Management have been working to identify storage locations on campus where items were forgotten or abandoned and to clean out those areas to better utilize campus space. Many of the items are no longer of use on campus, but still hold value.

For the first time, JWU Providence is hosting a Surplus Store Sale on Friday, April 12, from noon-4pm, in the archives warehouse on the second floor of The Friedman Center, Harborside Campus. Items for sale include computer monitors, electronics, small kitchen wares, industrial kitchen equipment, office furniture, desk chairs, etc. This is a first come, first serve sale. Items will not be held in advance of the sale. Credit cards will be the only form of payment accepted. More items being added each day!
