Pick Up 'N' Pay:  You are the high bidder - Now What?

Auction 2015

April 23rd-26th

Rules of AUCTION state that all high bidders must pick up and pay for their merchandise before AUCTION is back on air the next day. * Any unclaimed items will either go to the second highest bidder or be put back up for auction. But how do you know and where do you go?

If you are the high bidder on an item, a volunteer will call you - the same evening you bid - to confirm. (If you don't get called, you didn't get the item so better luck next time.) The confirmation volunteer will give you any specific instructions you need. If you are from the Bloomington or Galesburg areas, be sure to ask about special pick up locations/dates.

Pick Up 'N' Pay in Peoria  [Map & Directions]

The Pick Up 'N' Pay center is at 101 State Street on Peoria's Riverfront. When you come for your items, come to WTVP's  broadcast facility. Follow the Pick Up 'N' Pay signs to  the building. Park your car and come to the door marked "Pick Up 'N' Pay," and our volunteers will help you from there.

Remember that you must pick up your items the next day after you bid. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express cards are all welcome. But don't come down to pick up your items unless a member of our confirmation team called to tell you that you were the high bidder.

Be aware there is a lot of road construction around the warehouse district.

With the flooding of the Illinois River, Water Street in Downtown Peoria has been closed. Use this revised route from I-74: From I-74, take Exit 94 “River Road” and stay to the right following the signs to Downtown Peoria. Cross the Illinois River and turn left onto SW Jefferson Ave. Turn left on Oak St and continue forward thru the gate into the WTVP back parking lot.

Heading north from 474, take Adams to Washington Street and turn right onto State Street.Once you get to WTVP, follow the Pick Up ‘N Pay signs to the rear of the building.

Whether you are coming from the east or west, north or south, just watch for the orange “Water Street Businesses” signs.

2015 Pick up and Pay Hours:  10am - 6pm High Bidders with EXPRESS BID NUMBERS may pick up their items on any day of Pick Up 'N' Pay. Last day for pick up is Monday, April 27th.
