WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Let the bidding begin! Call it a new trend in grocery shopping. Kurt and Missy Hefner travel the state auctioning off discount products to folks looking for a good deal.

"We’ll be selling, beef, pork, poultry, and seafood. Some are cut fresh, some frozen. We’ll have dried goods, canned goods, some damaged packages, some slightly out of date and it’s a really really fun time. A lot of people are here for the entertainment,” Kurt said.

The trend is so hot it's bagged the attention of a major TV network, which has asked to be unnamed at this point. Cameras were rolling Thursday night as they put together a pilot.

When talking about how the event got discovered by the network, Kurt said, "It was a news feed that someone picked up and by chance called us and we were very fortunate that they did and we hope it will continue.”

While some may have been out looking for their 15 seconds of fame, one faithful shopper says she's only here for the bargains.

"I come every month they have them, every time the doors are open, I’m here. They can look forward to seeing me and it means so much to me. I’ve been in withdrawal because they missed a month," Priscilla Harts said.

TV deal or not, the bargains will go on.

Missy Hefner said, "Everyone needs food and you can save money here for sure.”

“Maybe finally I’ll be discovered!” Harts said.
