GREENCASTLE, Pa. -- For 41 years, Greencastle has promoted its downtown with a huge two-day sidewalk sale and nothing, not the economy nor construction, would stop it from doing it again this year.
Approximately 80 vendors and downtown merchants will set up shop on the street for the two-day Sidewalk Days event.
Bill Gour, executive director of the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce, said more vendors have signed up to sell at this year's event than in years past.
"It's going to be cool," Gour said.
To make way for the two-day sale, the Borough of Greencastle has told its contractor to avoid work on Baltimore Street during the 42nd annual event.
The borough is replacing water main under Baltimore Street to prepare the street for a new surface in the fall.
With construction out of the way, Gour said he anticipates many bargain-hunters will hit town over the weekend.
"People will be looking for bargains," he said. "The whole idea behind Sidewalk Days is to bring those great bargains to the streets."
