SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Yahoo Inc. will close its online auction service for North America next month, according to the Madison Daily Leader. The Sunnyvale-based company’s auctions in the United States and Canada will end June 16, although some tools will remain accessible until Oct. 29. The closure won’t affect Yahoo’s auction services in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.

Yahoo is leaving North America’s auction market nearly nine years after launching the service.
