What is a Dutch Auction?
A Dutch Auction is the opposite of the type of auction we are accustomed to.  We set the bid, on an item,  at just below its valued a price.  We then lower the bid until you feel the price is right and bid on it.......AND IT IS YOURS!!  You are the winning bidder!
The PRESSURE is ON!.....Are You Feeling Lucky?  Don’t miss out on your chance to buy the item you want.

How Does Radio Shop Work?

You’ll receive a red Radio Shop certificate for most items you buy from us.  You’ll then take these Certificates to the specific business and redeem them for the items or amounts listed on the Certificate.  Most items on Radio Shop have a set price which is lower than the item’s retail price.  You pay the Radio Shop price, but receive the retail value of the item.
FOR EXAMPLE:  Store X has a Certificate on Radio Shop  
Radio Shop Price:  Six Dollars (The Price you pay for Store X’s certificate on Radio Shop)
Face Value:  Ten Dollars (The Amount your Radio Shop certificate is worth upon redemption at Store X)
You Save:  Four Dollars!
Once you have an item or items you would like to purchase, call the Radio Shop program when it is on the air and tell us what items you want to purchase.  We’ll then ask you for your phone number.  We use that phone number only to identify you as the purchaser of that item.  We ask if you are buying multiple items on Radio Shop to please give your phone number after each item.  This makes bookkeeping  much easier for us and assures you get the items you want.  PLEASE! ONLY ONE PHONE NUMBER PER CALL!

What About Auction Items?

Some items on Radio Shop are auction items.  These are items on which we take bids during the Radio Shop program, above a minimum bid which is announced during the program.  Auction items are specified by the Radio Shop announcer and can often be inspected at the participating business before the date of the auction.
