Briggs Auction, Inc.
Briggs Auction is owned and operated by John H. Turner, William J. Briggs, and Janice Briggs Turner. Robert J. Briggs took over the business from his father in the 1960's. During this time, Mr. Briggs expanded the auction facilities to the size at which they now stand, over 10,000 square feet with unlimited customer parking. OUR MISSION Our mission is to provide our clients and customers with the highest level of professional, courteous, honest, and ethical service and to obtain the highest possible price for the finest quality merchandise, sold at absolute auction without minimums or reserves, in order to ensure the finest auction experience. Briggs Auction is more than the sum total of the merchandise we have sold over the years. At the heart of our operation are our people and the pride that we take in knowing our customers as individuals. This has been our philosophy from the very start. OUR HISTORY Briggs Auction was founded in 1932 behind the Booth's Corner School, the site on where it still stands today. We began with two auctions each week, selling livestock on Tuesdays and other merchandise on Fridays. At the Friday auctions, everything on hand was sold, with nothing carried over. Flea Marketers began to set up their wares on-site on Fridays, and the tradition has continued into the present.
