The garage sale season is winding down but enthusiasts who enjoy looking for those hidden treasurers or simply looking to buy something unique will have a good chance to succeed this weekend in Ogdensburg. The streets will be lined with garage sale items.
The Greater Ogdensburg Chamber of Commerce’s City Wide Garage Sale will take place Saturday and Sunday. City residents will be joined by shoppers from throughout St. Lawrence County and Canada.
This is a great opportunity for you to do some back-to-school shopping or simply clear out the clutter and make some extra money at the same time. Your best bet is to grab a Garage Sale Directory and then canvass the city.
We want to remind motorists to keep an eye out for increased foot traffic on city streets, especially busy streets such as Ford Street, State Street, Washington Street, and New York Avenue. These streets could be lined with parked cars and people getting in and out of their vehicles. Slow down when you notice congestion.
This Ogdensburg Chamber event will bring people into the city. Not only will they spend their money at multiple garage sales, they will most likely purchase gasoline, eat at restaurants and do some shopping at Ogdensburg stores. The sale is a great way to bring money into the local economy and promote the wonderful things Ogdensburg has to offer.
