RICHMOND, Va. — Shoppers will have the chance next week to scoop up furniture, electronics and other odds and ends from a soon-to-be-demolished state office building next to the Virginia Capitol.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2tCg7Le ) surplus items from the General Assembly Building will be available at a moving sale of sorts on July 11.
Doors will open at 9 a.m. for state agencies, local governments and schools districts to browse. The public can shop between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The building is a patchwork of four structures built between 1912 and 1965. Its asbestos problem was a main reason lawmakers decided to demolish it rather than renovate it.
Proceeds from the sale will go toward the preservation of Capitol Square and the buildings that surround it.
