These Sidewalks Are Made for Shopping

Madison Street turns into a big shopping bazaar later this month.

These Sidewalks Are Made for Shopping

No music, no street closings - just one big street with loads of bargains.

The third Forest Park Sidewalk Sale will be from Sept. 28 to Sept. 30 and feature bargains galore along Madison Street.

The event will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The tables go out and the merchants go to town, putting out any items they want, said Laurie Kokones, the chamber's executive director.

Weather permitting the event will be outside; if  it's raining, well, it'll be inside. Balloons will designate who's in.

This is the last sidewalk sale of the year; it is an event that businesses count on to increase visibility, traffic and sales, Kokones said.

Call the Chamber, which is sponsoring the event, at 708-366-2543 for more information.
