Old Navy Trucks: Here is what I've learned

There is currently a total of 8 former Old Navy display trucks for auction on eBay. I called and spoke to a manager of the Old Navy in our local mall to find out what they knew. According to the store manager, all of the trucks are supposed to be removed from all stores by the end of next week. She told me that the truck in our local store is currently in the back, but it is scheduled for pickup on Monday, February 11th.

I asked about purchasing the local truck, and I was told that individual stores can not sell the trucks. Corporate office has hired a company to sell the trucks. She did say that they were instructed to take the names of interested individuals, as they anticipate some trucks being left over. I asked her if all Old Navy stores had the trucks. She told me that the newer stores didn't, but of the some 900 stores, over 600 of them had the trucks. That means there will be 600+ trucks that will be appearing on eBay and at swap meets, etc. in the coming year.

She took my name and phone number and said that she would pass it on to the Corporate Office.

It seems apparent looking at some of the trucks that are currently for auction that guys are buying them up and trying to resell them on eBay. One picture currently on eBay shows another truck in the background. The description below was taken from a current auction in Missouri. Notice the seller says "We have many styles to choose from that are 1/2 and 3/4 ton".
