Businessman snags multiple appliances at YSU sale, leaving others empty-handed

Staff report


A big used-appliance sale at Youngstown State University drew 200 prospective buyers – and some complaints Thursday on social media.

University Courtyard is housing for YSU students. A sale of its older appliances, open to the public, was slated to start at noon, but many people started lining up at 8 a.m.

There were about 50 refrigerators, stoves and microwaves each available at the beginning of the sale.

One woman took to social media a couple of hours later to complain that a businessman at the front of the line bought the remainder of the stoves and fridges before she and some others had the chance to snag one.
