Press Release – Restaurant Liquidation Auction

July 9, 2010

I had no idea either of these businesses closed.  We ate at the downtown Coffee Bar.  The thing that stood out to me was the amazing building right near downtown.  Not being a hotdog fan, I’ve never eaten at Backyard Big Dog.  Sad to see local businesses close.  From a press release.


On Tuesday July 13th, will be conducting an online auction to liquidate all contents
of the former Village Coffee Bar & Backyard Big Dog Grill both located next to each
other in Kalamazoo on Stadium Drive. On Thursday July 15th, the Downtown Kalamazoo location
of the Village Coffee Bar will be liquidated.

These large auctions will consist of all contents including the seating, décor, all restaurant
equipment plus supplies, some wall hangings, office equipment, and much much more! This an
excellent time for individuals to take advantage of bidding on great items! is the largest on-site public auction house in the Midwest located in Kalamazoo
just off of I-94 occupying the former Double Day Headquarters. The 90,000 square foot building
allows sellers to drop off items and gives buyers the ability to review auction “lots” prior to
the one day on-line and on-site auction. Auctions occur weekly and new products are brought in
daily. Specialty auctions are also scheduled for business liquidations.

Ed Ouellette president of says “We have formed several partnerships with area
businesses and public institutions to provide them with a portal to recap their investment on unused
assets. Our buyers are coming from all over the 50 states and as far as Pakistan. It has
been very exciting to see so many visitors to Kalamazoo driving and even flying in to our facility
each week.”

All auctions can be viewed and bid online at When first opened, Biddergy
made an announcement to provide several jobs. We are happy to say we have a total of 15 employees
at this time with plans to hire more in the future.
