Inside the City of Calgary's Surplus Store

The Homestretch

The City of Calgary Surplus store is basically a warehouse full of surplus equipment, recoveries by police, lost and found items from city facilities and transit busses. Every Tuesday, they open up the shop so that interested citizens can go in and buy whatever is on offer. But earlier this year, the city added an online auction component to the store. Homestretch traffic guru Jenny Howe met up with Rob Eccleston, the manager of warehouse and inventory for the city, to see what exactly happens inside the surplus store.
