Homewood shops are getting ready for a giant Sidewalk Sale on Saturday, July 26. More than 30 stores in downtown Homewood and Edgewood are participating.
The sidewalks will be lined with merchandise, most of which will come with price reductions from 20 to 70 percent off.
“We want to make it a street market type atmosphere,” said Steve Thomas, head of the Homewood Chamber of Commerce Business Association.
Thomas said that some Homewood merchants organized a similar sale last summer but this year the Chamber is spearheading it.
Four Seasons marketing director Liz Lane said the “mega sidewalk sale” will feel like a party, with many retailers serving food and drinks or hosting other festivities.
“Last year it was a really good turnout,” Lane said. “We got a lot of business and are excited about doing it this year.”
Lane noted that many stores are receiving new merchandise in late July, and the sale allows them to make room for the new items.
