Day 1 of Greenwich’s annual sidewalk sales 4-day event got off to a sweltering start. Hats off to all the patient store staff up and down Greenwich Ave, where the stream of cars looking for parking was bumper to bumper.

Greenwich Free Press picks for great deals included YOGASMOGA  which is offering shoppers 60% off all merchandise outside and 30% off all merchandise in-store, and Persifor, where there is a sample sale of resort wear dresses set up under a tent outside the Senior Center at 299 Greenwich Avenue.

There are over 110 participating merchants and no doubt, there is a bargain waiting for a variety of tastes and needs!

Everyone should read the parking signs, park legally and feed the meters because it defeats the purpose to get a $55.00 parking ticket, right?

Found a bargain you want to share? The official hashtags or sidewalk sales are #GreenwichSidewalkSales and #GSS2016

In addition to the many participating retail stores, this year’s Greenwich Sidewalk Sale Days will feature live music throughout the weekend on the front lawn of the Board of Education, 290 Greenwich Avenue.

As the sales continue there will be live entertainment. BarbaraEntertains.com will perform Saturday, 12:00 noon to 3 p.m. The JD Southard Band will perform Sunday, 12:00 noon to 3 p.m. Updates can be found on The Chamber’s Facebook  or on Twitter at @GreenwichCC

    Why is it a rapidly growing epidemic for food trucks and Boutique trucks to park in HANDICAP and 15 minute only spaces such as in front of Starbucks on the Ave. as well as The Greenwich Commons Lot at Havemeyer Building . Why is “our ” Police Dept. not enforcing the law for all ?

  • Vin DiMarco

    Live entertainment, Food trucks, tremendous bargains, sounds exciting! As it has been for how many years. So has the “steady stream of cars bumper to bumper looking for parking spaces”. No mention, though, of any effort to alleviate this problem. A downtown shuttle or open-air trolleys have been suggested time and again, and this seems to be the ideal test event. I don’t recall this being tried (at least in recent years), even though many CoC’s and BID’s do it, while “lack of parking” is always at the top of our CoC’s complaint list.
