Imperial Auction Market owners Lloyd and Sandy Wilson announced this week they have sold the sale barn, effective Sept. 1, 2014.
The barn has been purchased by Preston Smith and his wife, Marissa. Smith is a native of Imperial and he and his family will be relocating here.
Friday will mark the final sale for the Wilsons.
In June, Smith was named reserve world champion at the 51st annual World Champion Livestock Auctioneering Championship in Knoxville, Iowa.
A more complete story on the transition will follow in the coming weeks.
