Citywide Garage Sale deadline soon

Those wishing to participate in the annual Alpena Citywide Garage Sale should sign up soon, as the deadline to return forms is 2 p.m. Monday, June 24.

The garage sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 28 and 29.

The cost to participate in one day is $15, or $20 for both days.

To sign up, fill out an application and bring your fee to Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce, 235 W. Chisholm St. in Alpena. Checks will not be accepted. This is not a Chamber-sponsored event, but the Chamber is a drop-off site for applications and to pick up and drop off garage sale signs.

Maps will be printed in the Alpena News on June 27 and available at the News office or on the Alpena Citywide Garage Sale Facebook page.

Those living outside the city limits are encouraged to participate, and will be listed, but not included on the map. Businesses may also participate.

The money collected will cover the cost of the event and a portion saved for seed money for next year. Proceeds will be split between The Huron Humane Society and Friends Together.

Printed “Garage Sale” signs will be provided so shoppers can easily identify participants. Signs should be returned to the Chamber office after the sale on Saturday, June 29, from 5 to 7 p.m. If unable to return signs that day, please do so during regular business hours.

When dropping off your paid application, you will receive a 50% off coupon from the Alpena News for a classified ad. This is only redeemable during the Citywide Garage Sales for that participating address.
