Andersonville Announces Two Big Shopping Events Starting This Weekend

It’s all about local shopping in Andersonville as they gear up for two big shopping events over the next two weeks.

One of Andersonville’s long running and well-attended events is the annual sidewalk sale later in July. So the minds at the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce thought, what’s better than one sidewalk sale? How about two?

Coinciding with the Chamber’s ‘First Fridays’ event, the first sidewalk sale will take place this weekend February 2-4 to be followed by the second later in the summer. Only difference with the winter sidewalk event is that the sales take place inside the stores to keep shoppers nice and warm.

“Andersonville’s Summer Sidewalk Sale, typically held in July, is such a long time favorite that we wanted to offer a similar event during the winter months when the cold typically keeps people indoors,” said ACC’s Executive Director Sara Dinges. “This upcoming weekend will mark our first indoor Sidewalk Sale, and we hope that visitors and regulars come to not only shop great sales, but enjoy the experience of a walkable, vibrant, local business district such as Andersonville.”

Expect some great deals during the event including 20-50% at Murray and White (5416 N. Clark), a $5-$14 bargain bin at Transit Tees (5226 N. Clark), and fan favorite Alamo Shoes (5321 N. Clark) offering big deals on shoes. For a full list of participants Click Here.

The following weekend (February 9-14), the Chamber will hold the With Love From Andersonville” Valentine’s Day give back campaign. During the event, participating stores located in Andersonville will be banding together to give back 14% of sales to charities or non-profits of their choice.

With the help of Hallie Borden, owner of Milk Handmade (5137 N. Clark), the event celebrates its second coming after last year’s successful start. 

“In our current political climate, there’s an increased need to support organizations whose missions are under threat,” said Borden. “Instead of dividing Milk’s donation between so many deserving non-profits, I decided to reach out to the neighborhood to see how we could multiply the effect.”

All participating businesses will be displaying door signs with the “With Love from Andersonville” logo. That sign will not only communicate which charity/non-profit that business will be giving to, but it will also display the days the donation will take place. For a full list of “With Love” participants Click Here.

Business hours will vary per location for both events. Shop on Andersonville!
