Nancy Dillman, owner of T.C. and More, says she loves the annual sidewalk sales because it helps her showcase the store offerings to their faithful regulars and new customers alike. She says for her, it also allows her to move a lot of old seasonal inventory.
“For the downtown businesses, it’s a good way to get rid of your old merchandise and make way for the new merchandise, explains Dillman, “So the customers can take advantage of that.”
The sidewalk sales will continue through Saturday, and people are encouraged to head on downtown to patronize your locally owned businesses.
