SOUTH WHITLEY — The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor’s Center is once again preparing for the annual South Whitley Community Garage Sales Friday, April 27 and Saturday, April 28, 2017.
In addition to supporting the effort to regionally promote the event, the Chamber is offering opportunities to businesses and individuals across Whitley County to get involved.
“Each spring, we look forward to the South Whitley Garage Sales,” said Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor’s Center Executive Director Jennifer Romano. “This two-day event is incredibly important to South Whitley because of how many people and dollars it brings to town. Those dollars, in the hands of local residents, are spent buying meals in local restaurants, with local merchants, at fundraising booths and in support of South Whitley area residents. The economic impact of this event is significant.”
“We are excited to partner with the community and with the Tribune-News each year to promote and support this event,” Romano added. “The more people we can draw to South Whitley through this event means a bigger financial win for businesses, non-profits and residents.”
A limited number of prime booth rental spaces along Mulberry Street will be available on a first come, first served basis for $20 for one day or $25 for both days. The spaces are 10×10 foot and can be used for fundraisers, food vendors, craft vendors, personal garage sales and more. Located in a desirable, high traffic area, the booths are ideal for anyone wanting to participate in the annual South Whitley Community Garage sales. To reserve a booth space or request a booth form, contact the Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor’s Center at 248-8131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces sell out quickly.
