Newton Falls Marks the Spot for Bargain Hunting


Summer is almost over but the bargain hunting has just begun. Last month the ordinarily sleepy little town of Newton Falls was filled with crowds looking for some Fourth of July excitement. This weekend the same streets will be flooded with yard sale shoppers looking for a great deal. All the planning that the Newton Falls Community-Wide Yard Sale Committee has put into the last year will come to fruition when the Sale officially opens at 9am on Friday, August 5th.
Over 75 residents have bought permits and will have sales in their yards, garages, parking lots, and basically wherever they can plunk a table. The map of where those sales are located has been completely revamped for 2011 and will be available at various businesses in the town during the sale. Eager shoppers can plan their route in advance by viewing the map online and printing a copy from the Committee’s Facebook page. The easier-to-read map includes not only the addresses of each participating sale, but also a few clues to what goodies can be found at each location. Can’t see it all in one day? Don’t worry – the sale will run all weekend (August 5th, 6th, and 7th) to give bargain hunters plenty of time for prime shop ’til you drop opportunities.
Things to keep in mind when you go: there are plenty of places to park in the town and traffic laws still apply, so be respectful and avoid parking in the middle of the road or in residents’ yards. Please be mindful of pedestrians! To save hassle (and gas!), it’s a good idea to find a spot in a central location and walk to several sales clustered together. It’s sure to be hot out so dress for the heat and keep hydrated for the long haul. Also, it’s helpful to bring small bills to get the best bang for your buck!
Residents, shoppers, and Committee members alike are looking forward to a safe, enjoyable, wallet-friendly weekend for all. Don’t be late – it’s going to be great!
