QuikDrop International announced today that Audrey and Geoff Groves
have been granted area development rights to open 29 QuikDrop eBay
drop-off stores in the State of North Carolina. QuikDrop franchise
opportunities are available in all areas of North Carolina immediately.
The first North Carolina based QuikDrop retail store will open in
Cary this January.
QuikDrop eBay drop-off stores provide an easy way for anyone to
sell their items on eBay simply and conveniently. New or used items
with a value of $50 or more can be dropped off at any QuikDrop location,
where they are photographed and placed on eBay. Once sold, QuikDrop
handles the payment and shipping details with the winning bidder.
The customer receives a check in the mail for the full amount of
the sale, less a commission to QuikDrop.
"I've been in the Internet business for a long time and I've
never seen anything as exciting as eBay," says Mr. Groves.
"QuikDrop's franchise model of locally owned eBay drop-off
stores in every community brings the eBay experience to the masses."
"The Groves have the right combination of sales and customer
service experience along with excellent eBay experience," says
Murray Mead, President of QuikDrop International. "They have
the resources and leadership skills to develop our brand in North
QuikDrop pioneered the eBay drop-off store franchise business model
and was the first company to obtain state approval to operate eBay

that time, eighteen QuikDrop locations have opened in nine states.
Franchise contracts are currently in place to open over 500 stores
in the United States and 100 stores internationally.
