Bring a Trailer - Auctions closing now on weekends.....

So - what do you think about that?

Email I just received:
BaT Auctions Expanding to 7-Day Schedule

We began launching weekend auctions on Saturday, March 13th and that first batch of listings closes this Saturday, March 20th! BaT will now have auctions that open and close 7 days a week.

We are very pleased to have added substantial capacity to our team and are confident that we will provide a great customer and auction experience on any day.

We started off with only Wednesday auctions in 2014. In 2015, we added Tuesdays and Thursdays. In 2016, we launched Mondays and Fridays. We have now eclipsed 400 listings per week on the M-F schedule and are ready for the next frontier that the 7-day experience will provide.
From my standpoint - I'm not so sure I'd want my auction to end on a weekend... Time will tell though. IF they need more 'space' - Just add more to each weekday... I'd say.
But.. oh well... I will say, for the cars I have actually bid on - it was nice to not have a weekend day to be involved... But that is just me...

When I used to sell my cars on eBay my goal was to have the auction end on a Sunday night, the reason being people are usually home on Sunday night ending their weekend and getting ready for work on Monday.
