Big Jim’s House

Weekdays 6:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

Joe Louis Arena has been closed for over a year now. Ahead of the demolition, many parts of the arena are up for auction.
The auction will include the mammoth outdoor sign that says  “Joe Louis Arena” above both of the entrances.

Bidding for the sign, which has approximately 5-feet tall lettering, starts at $5 on, which allows prospective buyers to pre-bid before the official auction date.

It’s part of phase one of the Joe Louis Arena sellable assets auction which also begins on June 5. Pre-bidding is now open for those lots as well.

Other items up for bid include signs, railings, ramps, scaffolding and more.
