Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Center prepares to welcome visitors from far and wide for annual South Whitley Community Garage Sales
The Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Center is once again preparing for the annual South Whitley Community Garage Sales on Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29, 2017. The event is co-sponsored with the Tribune-News.
In addition to supporting the effort to regionally promote the event, the Chamber is offering opportunities to businesses and individuals across Whitley County to participate.
"We look forward to this annual spring event in South Whitley each year," said Whitley County Chamber of Commerce & Visitor's Center executive director Jennifer Romano. "This one weekend event is incredibly important to our community in South Whitley because of the scores of visitors it brings to town -- people who bring dollars that are spent buying meals in local restaurants, with local merchants, at fundraising booths and in the cash they spend with South Whitley area residents. The economic impact of this event is substantial."
"We are excited to partner with the Tribune-News and the community 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 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.
