SALEM, OR-Anderson’s Sporting Goods, an 80-year-old chain of athletic and outdoor retailing outlets in the Willamette Valley has been put into receivership and will be auctioned off next week. Harvey Fox, the man forcing the action, owned the chain for 45 years before, building it from one to six stores before selling it to his employees on a contract several years ago. Fox forced the chain into receivership after the new owners failed to make several monthly payments.

Salem lawyer Richard Allen was appointed as receiver by a Marion County judge. A sheriff’s sale will be held at Anderson’s downtown Salem store at 10 a.m. Nov. 22 to sell all of the company’s assets as a whole. Fox reportedly hopes to be the highest bidder, and re-enter the sporting goods business. It is unclear what will become of the Salem store, or if Fox would reopen its Albany and Eugene locations which were recently closed.
