Local couple starts up eBay store

There were no funny eBay sales in J and J Enterprise's first week of business.

No one wanted to sell advertising on their forehead or anything like that.

But John Milligan, the owner of Craig's new eBay store, said maybe the store will make some of the obscure sales that have made eBay famous in the future.

"We're hoping to," Milligan said.

Milligan and his wife, Jane, started the eBay store in late February.

J and J sells merchandise on the online auction site for its customers.

Milligan said a lot of his customers have stuff they want to sell but don't want to go through the hassle of putting it up for auction.

When customers call J and J, the Milligans will come to their house and take pictures of the merchandise and put it up for bid on eBay.

The customers agree not to sell the merchandise anywhere else until the auction closes.

J and J takes a commission off the sale once the item sells.

Milligan said the company has sold mostly musical equipment.

The Milligans are running the business out of their home. Customers can visit their Web site, www.jandjenterprise.biz, or call them at 824-5790.

Subway remodel

The remodeling project at Subway restaurant, 1420 W. Victory Way, is 99.9 percent complete.

Owner George Barlow said the only thing left to do in the remodel is install a beverage counter.

The counter was supposed be in already, Barlow said, but shipping is taking longer than expected.

Subway was closed for nine days while Barlow and crews from The Paint Dabbers, Sunset Drywall and Great Divide Cleaning Service remodeled the 10-year-old restaurant. The restaurant opened again last week.

The remodel was the first at the restaurant since the late 1990s, when the TCBY Yogurt counter was installed, Barlow said.
