I was told the same thing and was unable to coordinate transportation.
The deadline was extended and I was able to get everything together
last weekend.

Don't despair too much. The jury is still out on whether this
stuff is salvageable.

Gary's original message wasn't clear how things worked there,
but after a few questions I figured it out. I did spend money inside
the store on old manuals and ICs (74141s and C1702As, which
are on-topic), but the hardware I listed was outside the building,
next to a dumpster. According to the folks behind the counter,
locals come by and drop off their old hardware next to that
dumpster. So, anything out there is free for the taking.
