Hi George, don't know if you know Rainier's "Tractor Bob"
but his tractor was vandalized and he can't afford to get it up
and going again, so Tim Brogan set up this GoFundMe account.
I thought you might be able to pass it around to help him out.


Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

Deni & Chris Hansen Wedding April 6, 2016

By:  George Johnson

This week a couple of very special people got married. Chris Hansen and Deni Gieger, owners of Storage Auction Liquidators, took their vows at the public gazebo in downtown Rainier. 

Tom Cook lead them with their vows in front of a group of family and friends in a colorfully decorated gazebo. It you missed being a part of the day, do stop in the store and wish them what they truly deserve, nothing but the best.

Deni & Chris have become fixtures in our community, since bringing their store to downtown Rainier. They carry a wide variety of items and their inventory changes daily, which includes hand crafted items created by fourteen local artists.  

If you’ve ever stopped in their store in downtown Rainier, you know what wonderful people they are, not to mention the great deals they offer. They both put you instantly at ease and seem like old friends, when you meet them.


Before the wedding, George & I helped Jem (from Signature Realty), decorate the gazebo in Rainier before the bride & groom arrived.  We decorated in Seahawk colors - in honor of their favorite team.
