The line was out the door at Jillian's Wednesday morning, even though the entertainment complex closed for business last weekend. Hundreds lined up to bid on everything from industrial sized kitchen equipment to arcade games.
Bidders took time to play the games and peruse the nearly 3,000 items earlier Wednesday morning.
"Oh we've been playing the games, and really having a good time," said Mark Stephens with Indy South Sports Academy.
The local gym was looking for game machines to add a twist to their fitness facility.
Other business owners were looking for deals on things like cash registers and televisions.
One local man said he was at the auction for a more sentimental reason.
"This is where my me and my wife had our first date at, we went to the hockey game and came over here and played a couple of games.
"I'm trying to find something to surprise her and say I got it here so we can remember our first date," said Jeff Embry.
Jillian's opened in Indianapolis in 1998 and declared bankruptcy earlier this year. The space won't be empty long, it will be used for events during the upcoming Super Bowl. The Scottish pub "The Tilted Kilt" will eventually move into the ground floor.
