You can soon buy part of the Toronto Star printing plant

The Toronto Star shut down its Vaughan-area printing plant on July 2 as it began outsourcing to Transcontinental Printing. Now, much of the equipment inside the plant is up for auction.

On Tuesday, September 20, there will be a live auction at the site of the now-shuttered Woodbridge plant, which will be followed by an online version on Wednesday, September 21.

This massive sale is being facilitated by TCL Asset Group Inc., along with Maynards, and BidItUp, and it includes a slew of printing presses and other related equipment as well as office furniture and pieces from the facility's fitness centre.

According to promotional material, the entire auction will be conducted using US funds.
