EAST LANSING, Mich. — Downtown East Lansing's 2017 Sidewalk Sales will be taking place Sept. 14-17.
During the Sidewalk Sales, downtown merchants will be offering sales and specials along sidewalks and in stores. Hours will vary among participating businesses.
The Sidewalk Sales provide community members and visitors alike with a great opportunity to shop local at downtown East Lansing's eclectic mix of shops, art galleries and restaurants, while taking advantage of some great deals. Shoppers will find back-to-school products, art, MSU merchandise, tailgate necessities, gifts, clothing, accessories and everything in between - all at great prices. While out shopping the sales, patrons are encouraged to grab a bite to eat at a participating restaurant.
Previously hosted in July, the Sidewalk Sales dates were moved to September last year to include incoming MSU students.
“We hope to see a great mix of community members out and about in downtown East Lansing during the Sidewalk Sales,” said East Lansing Community Development & Engagement Manager Amy Schlusler-Schmitt.
In addition to the sales, participating businesses will have a limited number of free parking vouchers to hand out to shoppers that make purchases. Community members can find additional information, including a list of participating businesses, at www.cityofeastlansing.com/SidewalkSales.
