The facility at 4086 Peru Drive targets customers in northwestern Nevada and eastern Nevada, said Tom O’Brien, chief executive officer of the company headquartered at Westchester, Ill.

The Storey County location will run weekly auctions on Tuesdays. The company combines live auctions with Internet bidding.
