Countywide Sales Being Planned For 2010
A series of countywide garage sales are being planned for the summer of 2010 in a joint effort to stir interest in the community.
Organizer Helen Cone is working in conjunction with the Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce to promote the weekend projects planned for May, July and September.
“This is a community effort, with no strings attached,” she said. “Anyone can participate once, twice, all three months, or none at all. But if you do participate hang balloons to let shoppers know that you have bargains.”
The first outing of Ballooning Into the City of Memphis is set for May 14 and 15. Subsequent events are set for the second weekend of July and September.
The series of yard, garage and sidewalk sales will begin at the Iowa State Line and travel south to town and beyond.
There is no cost to participate.
Cone said she hopes MACC members will take advantage of the increased traffic in the region to offer special sales or other promotions.
