Looking for some great gifts or want to treat yourself? This weekend is your chance. A majority stores located in downtown Sayville will be participating in the annual sidewalk sale, which is sponsored by the Sayville Chamber of Commerce.
Come walk down Main Street all daytoday, Saturday and Sunday, when temperatures should be more comfortable in the 80's. Make sure to shop inside the stores too as the sidewalk sale is located both inside and outside of the stores.
"The sidewalk sales event is one of many events put together by the Chamber of Commerce that gives the merchants an opportunity to meet new customers and maintain an ongoing relationship with existing ones," said Chamber president Richard Trpicovsky. "The events bring new and old customers into town to enjoy the event and discover the pleasure of shopping here."
Don't let the temperatures fool you – store owners are trying to clear out some merchandise to get ready for the holiday season.
"We all want to bring in new inventory and need the space to do so," said Jennifer Gross, owner of Flourish, who will be offering 'Christmas in July' sales. "I hope people will come into town for some great bargains. It's an excellent way for shops to be able to give tremendous discounts."
After you are done shopping this afternoon, stop down to The Common Ground for Family Fridays at 6:30 p.m. to hear Darlene Graham perform. On Saturday, watch the Pet Parade trot down Main Street at 10 a.m. while you shop. The pets will offer some great entertainment. On Sunday, head over to the art exhibit at Meadow Croft after you shop. Artists will be there from 1 – 4 p.m.
