The Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort has confirmed that their public sale which earlier was scheduled to open for the general public has been canceled.
The casino operator said in an announcement that its furniture sale has seen an “overwhelming response” and therefore they have decided to call it off for the public in general.
Soaring Eagle hosted a furniture sale starting Jan. 6. The sale was only for the members of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe which owns and operates the gambling venue.
According to the pre-scheduled scheme, after the members of the tribe got early access, the sale would go live for the general public starting Jan 8.
However, it turns out that the casino had a lot more people than expected following which it has decided to say no to the sale that was scheduled to open for everyone today.
In an announcement, the casino operator confirmed that the sale has been canceled until further notice.
“The Soaring Eagle team has been working diligently, moving furniture from the hotel rooms to the ballroom for the past three days,” the casino explained in a press release. “The tribal community began lining up an hour prior to the doors opening for the sale.”
According to Soaring Eagle, the casino saw a queue of about 500 people waiting to wager on a furniture deal at the gambling facility. Amongst furniture available for sale were King-size mattresses, televisions, desks, mirrors, dining sets and more. For small budget customers, the casino was also offering luggage racks and trash cans.
For the casino, this was the first time it saw visitors coming in overwhelming numbers to purchase furniture.
No, the casino gambling facility is not venturing into the furniture business. It is going for a massive renovation that will take place in phases. The casino renovation plan involves renovating all 213 rooms of its resort attached to the gambling facility.
The furniture sale is a part of the casino’s renovation plans and while it helps them to raise some funds, it will also help them get rid of unwanted and old furniture without creating waste.
