HRO launches new auction site

I was perusing HRO’s website this morning and noticed that they’ve apparently launched an auction page. It looks like they’ve gone to an auction model to move damaged box and scratch’n’dent merchandise.  You’ll have to watch closely, however, as you can’t see the price that previous items sold for.  It also doesn’t look like it will notify you if someone outbids you.  Will be interesting to see if there are any deals to be had.

    Pretty neat, although I don’t like two things about it:

    1. Not listing the sales price removes one of the primary reasons I go to online auction sites: it works kinda like a blue book of market value
    2. The winning bidder’s full name is listed. Why?! Why not a login, or initals or something like that, but your full name? Just weird.
