Sale of Entire Hotel Inventory Will Be Open to the Public
Owensboro, KY (June 17, 2009) – Fans and friends of the former Executive Inn Hotel will have their chance to take home a piece of the “Big E” when the hotel’s doors open to the public one last time during a Public Liquidation Sale set to begin Thursday, June 18, 2009 at 10:00 am.
The City of Owensboro has contracted with National Content Liquidators, Inc. (NCL) of Springboro, OH, leading experts in hotel liquidation management, to divest the property of all saleable assets to make way for demolition of the property for future redevelopment.
The sale will continue for the next 45 days. Early arrival is encouraged as hundreds of people are expected to walk through the doors in the first few days and the sale is first come, first serve. Admission is free. Hours of operation are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 am – 7:00 pm; and Sunday, Noon – 5:00 pm.
“There are many items that are sure to be of sentimental interest to past guests that spent a lot of enjoyable times at the Executive Inn,” says Don Hayes, President of NCL. “But there are also plenty of items for those just looking for a great deal on household and/or restaurant furnishings and fixtures.”

“It may sound a little cliché, but ‘everything must go,’’ continues Hayes. “We are working to empty the property as quickly as possible, so that the building can be readied for demolition later this year.”
