A growing auction business plans to breathe new life into a historic Derry Township trolley barn.

Auctioneer Ryan Groff of Lane Ryan Auctions LLC is planning a June 13 grand opening and auction in the former Hershey trolley barn at 515 W. Chocolate Ave.

The auction house will lease about 7,300 square feet of space in the 20,000-square-foot building.

“Hershey is just a great town,” said Groff, 36, formerly of Classic Edge Auctions. “Financially it is a strong area and the downtown development just keeps making it a better area. It is also centrally located around our general operating area.”

The Harrisburg and Lebanon areas are a strong focus, but Groff, who partners with Kerry Pae Auctioneers in Middle Paxton Township on public auctions, travels across the commonwealth for business.

Groff, who has been a licensed auctioneer since 2000, has managed the day-to-day operations for Kerry Pae, a major player in the auction business with more than 40 years of experience.

“It’s a good partnership,” Groff said.

Groff said the plan is to hold monthly auctions, which could become weekly if demand is strong. He also is planning seasonal auctions.

The full-service auction house handles everything from start to finish and offers estate purchasing, clean-out services and hauling. It also specializes in on-site real estate and commercial liquidation auctions.

The Derry Township facility will feature live, cataloged and internet auctions. Groff is in the process of upgrading lighting and adding large-screen televisions to better display merchandise during auctions, as well as making the building accessible to people with disabilities.

“Everything is coming together,” Groff said.
