City Wide Yard Sales taking place this weekend
REED CITY — Steals and deals will be the name of the game this weekend for individuals who love perusing yard sales.
The two-day City Wide Yard Sales are slated for Friday, July 17, and Saturday, July 18, throughout Reed City. The event also coincides with downtown sidewalk sales.
Shoppers can easily locate sales around the city using a map provided by the Reed City Area Chamber of Commerce. Sales found on the map will have a yellow star burst sign in the yard. Other sales not registered on the map also may take place in neighborhoods that weekend as well.
"We have more than 42 people listed on the map, and that includes the sidewalk sales downtown," said Reed City Area Chamber of Commerce Interim Executive Director Juanita Ripley. "There are 10 businesses signed up for sales."
Those who are outside of the city or did not wish to be on the map can set up their sale in the parking lot behind the INC. Spot on Franklin Street.
Ripley hopes people will attend many of the sales to support local people, who in turn will likely keep the money in the community.
"I think everyone is looking for a deal and City Wide Yard Sales gives you a lot of options to find what you are looking for," she added. "Plus, it's fun to find that one-in-a-million treasure."
