After almost 18 years of operation at our location here in Biddeford and over 35 years in the food service equipment and supplies business, Dave and I have decided to retire. We have sold our building and property and feel this is the right time to exit, due to the rising fuel costs, equipment cost and manufacturers delays with product availability.  During the month of April we will start liquidating our inventory by offering 30% off all new small wares in stock and will accept all reasonable offers on all used inventory including used small wares and larger equipment.
We have contacted Keenan Auction Company to conduct an auction in May to liquidate our remaining inventory. This will be an absolute auction with no reserve and will be online through Proxy Bid. Please keep an eye out for auction notices.
Our last day of operation will be May 31st, 2022
We want to sincerely thank all of you that have made Ability Equiment Sales successful and have supported us over the years.
Thank you again,  John Leclerc and David Chretien
