On Sunday, August 27th, the downtown merchants had a sidewalk sale to coincide with Arts on the Avenue.
“The Sidewalk Sale was a success! I walked around on Sunday and visited all the stores that decided to be open that day.
“I saw lots of folks shopping, talked to store owners who were thrilled with the number of people in their stores and they were buying!
“I spoke to people on the streets and ran into locals who were enjoyed walking First Avenue and seeing the stores open.
“I would like to thank all who participated in the Sidewalk Sale – your efforts in helping to create a shopping event downtown is appreciated.
“I would like to thank the marketing committee: Kathy Holmes, Paul Joy, and Frieda Douglas, for the signage, the buskers, and all the marketing you did to make this event successful.
“Thanks again for everyone’s effort. It was great fun strolling the Avenue on Sunday and seeing so much activity.”
Andrea Rosato-Taylor, President LDBA
