Annual community event will be May 4
The 4th Annual Chewelah City-Wide Yard Sale will be Saturday, May 4, 2013. This year The Independent is sponsoring the community event previously hosted by the Chewelah Chamber of Commerce.
All sales will be listed in The Independent and on its Web site, www.chewelahindependent.com, on May 2 prior to the event. It has featured over 40 sales in previous years.
To sign up your yard sale, contact The Independent office at 935- 8422. The cost is $6, which includes your name on the map and, to highlight your location and participation, a coupon for a free balloon from Akers United Drug and a coupon for a free sign (plus 10 percent off all other yard sale supplies) from Sety’s Ace Hardware.
Anyone outside of Chewelah is welcome to participate as well and will be listed with the other yard sales, but are not a guaranteed a mark on the map.
All sales will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. unless special hours are requested during registration.
The Independent will be advertising to surrounding and regional communities to bring people to the area for this annual event. In the past, there have been visitors from as far as Yakima making the trip.
Businesses are also encouraged to help sponsor the event. Advertise on the map page on May 2 to help offset advertising costs and bring shoppers to your business as well.
For more information contact The Independent at 935-8422.
“The City-Wide Yard Sale is a worthwhile event that we wanted to see continue because it draws a lot of traffic to Chewelah,” said Publisher Jared Arnold. “We hope that as many people as possible can participate and make this the best year yet.”
