Expect shoppers to be flocking to Andersonville this weekend. However, many of the bargain hunters will be found browsing outside the stores, rather than inside.

It’s time again for the annual Andersonville Sidewalk Sale July 28-30 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, though hours may vary by business. The event, which is hosted by the Andersonville Chamber of Commerce (ACC), takes place from 4900 to 5800 N. Clark and the adjacent side streets.

Area stores will showcase their merchandise as they expand out onto their sidewalks. This year, over 30 businesses are participating and expect to find everything from clothing to antiques. Many stores heavily reduce their prices, making the event a bargain hunters dream.

“The Andersonville Summer Sidewalk Sale is a is a terrific way for locals and visitors to experience Andersonville, perhaps even for the first time,” said ACC’s Executive Director Sara Dinges. “Just last month, Andersonville was voted Chicago’s best overall neighborhood, and we remain a fantastic destination for local retail, home decor and antiques, quality dining, and more.”

This year Buskers are invited to perform all along the route. The ACC is hoping that the local street performers will help entertain shoppers and entice them to see all the sidewalk sale has to offer.

“Most customers know the Sidewalk Sale is our ‘Super Bowl,’” said Richard Price, co-owner of Alamo Shoes. They actually start their sale today.
