A couple of years after opening DTY Direct, brothers Mark and Mike Marney are liquidating the business.
When Have You Heard? first called the company a few months ago, a representative said the online site was not closing but the retail shop at 9629 E. Kellogg was closed for the winter.
Mark Marney didn’t return calls today to discuss the liquidation. A woman who answered the phone at DTY said, “I’m sorry, we have no comment,” and hung up.
But Tom Rine of Omaha-based Rine Auctioneers confirms there will be a liquidation of more than $2 million in high-end merchandise, such as gas grills, saunas, patio furniture, kitchen appliances, cutlery and pots and pans starting March 31 and April 1.
“One like this doesn’t come along very often,” he says. “This is phenomenal.”
Prices will be slashed by up to 70 percent.
“We’re going to move the merchandise,” Rine says.
He predicts it will take a while to do it, though, given that there’s 40,000 square feet of products.
“The showroom is absolutely packed full of stuff.”
