TidBids Inc. opened an eBay drop-off store in Indiana, and QuikDrop International announced that AuctionStop Inc. has entered into a contract to open 24 QuikDrop stores in Southern California.

AuctionStop is owned by Alan Weinstein and two business partners. They opened their first QuikDrop franchise location in Simi Valley, California, on Monday and will hold the store's grand opening on Saturday. They plan to open 23 more stores in the next 24-36 months.

Next week QuikDrop will announce another franchise contract agreement for additional stores. It had franchise locations in 5 states as of last fall. QuikDrop said it will hold a franchise seminar in Los Angeles on February 21 for those interested in learning more about the QuikDrop franchise operations.
